Here’s your chance to launch a legacy for wild sheep and the people of Sonora, Mexico! The Artee family is proud to partner with the Wild Sheep Foundation to establish “Sierra El Alamo” for the purpose of restoring free-ranging desert bighorn sheep to historic habitat within Sonora, Mexico. Spanning over 80,000 acres, Sierra El Alamo is located approximately 160 miles south of Tucson, AZ, 180 miles north of Hermosillo, and 30 miles east of the Sea of Cortez. The first two free-ranging desert bighorn sheep permits issued for the newly-established area will be auctioned to the highest bidders at the 2018 WSF Sheep Show in Reno, Nevada. Proceeds from the sale of these permits will go to the Sierra El Alamo Bighorn Sheep Program for on-the-ground projects including translocations, baseline health assessments, water developments and other habitat improvements within and adjacent to the newly-established area. Each permit provides the opportunity for one lucky bidder to hunt for one free-ranging desert bighorn ram in the beautiful mountains of Sonora, Mexico. The 10-day hunt will occur in December 2018, with lodging, meals, ground transportation from/to Hermosillo International Airport/Sierra El Alamo, and guides and translator services provided. The hunter will be responsible for air transportation to and from Hermosillo, Mexico, hunt documentation, CITES Permit, Gun Permit for Mexico, gratuities for guides, exportation and shipment fees to U.S.A, Canada or Europe. Additional non-hunting companions are welcome for $250 per day. Early December 2018 desert bighorn numbers are projected to be 120+ animals. Your support for putting and keeping free-ranging desert bighorn sheep in the mountains of Sonora, Mexico, where they have been absent from the wild for the past 50-60 years is greatly appreciated!
During the week of January 12th-20th you will be able to contact auction support at 406-404-8765 for any questions regarding the auctions.
