The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is proud to announce the donation of one desert bighorn sheep permit to the Wild Sheep Foundation for auction to the highest bidder at the 2015 WSF Sheep Show in Reno, Nevada.
Restoration of desert bighorn sheep in Texas has been an ongoing project since the 1950s. Through the cooperative efforts of the Wild Sheep Foundation, Texas Bighorn Sheep Society, private landowners and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, we have successfully restored desert bighorns in Texas to the population levels of the late 1800s.
The permit provides the opportunity for one lucky winner to hunt for one desert bighorn ram in the beautiful mountains of West Texas on one of the following State of Texas Wildlife Management Areas: Elephant Mountain, Sierra Diablo, or Black Gap. Based on recent increases in bighorn and permit numbers in Texas, the hunt will most likely occur between 1 September 2015 and 31 July 2016. The hunt will be for 10 days or until a ram is taken, whichever comes first. TPWD will provide lodging, meals, on-site transportation and guide services.
The hunter is required to possess a valid Texas hunting license (approximately $315 for a non-resident). Proceeds from the sale of this permit will go to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Desert Bighorn Sheep Program and used exclusively for desert bighorn restoration and management in Texas. Proceeds from past hunts have paid for the restoration of desert bighorns into sheep habitat which has been void of bighorns for over 50 years. Your support is very much appreciated!
