There is something exciting happening in the world of desert bighorn sheep. Long known for its precious few numbers and for its equally precious hunting permits; desert bighorn sheep numbers have been slowly increasing and nowhere is this more true than in Chihuahua, Mexico. This year WSF will offer one tag for this population that was started with the genetics from Tiburon Island. Jose Antonio Vallina a businessman, conservationist, and hunter started Rancho La Guarida in 1982 where he built a beautiful lodge and started developing water sources for the native wildlife. In 2000, he was able to bring in the first desert bighorn sheep and additional sheep were transplanted 2002 and 2003, some from Tiburon Island and some from other sources to increase generic diversity. Originally the sheep were placed in a 10,000 acre ranch that was partially high fenced. Rancho La Guarida has since added another 10,000 acres that are completely open creating a 20,000+ acre eco system for desert bighorn sheep. The lambing success has been exceptional due to the excellent habitat and genetics and now there is a herd of about 300 sheep, with about half of them being rams so hunters can expect to harvest rams in the 175 - 190 category. Desert bighorn sheep taken on Rancho La Guarida qualify for the Boone & Crockett Club Record Book as well as the B&C & WSF Awards Programs as free range, Fair Chase wild sheep. The permit is for December 2015 to March 2016 hunting season. After the hunter arrives in Chihuahua City, everything will be arranged for them in the very finest tradition of Mexican hospitality. the hunt is for 10 days and one companion can join the hunter at the bid price. Additional companions can be included at an additional charge. There are daily nonstop flights from Dallas and Houston into Chihuahua City or there is a landing strip on the property for direct flights into Rancho La Guarida. Experience the finest desert sheep hunt by purchasing this desert sheep hunt!

A 5% buyer’s premium will be added to the final bid price of each special permit sold, unless prohibited by statute. Proceeds will be dedicated to WSF Conservation Initiatives. If the winner of this item refuses to pay the premiums required, the item shall be offered to the next highest bidder for the price he/she bid.
