Wyoming Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep Hunt
Or Call: 1-800-346-8747
Wyoming continues to offer more Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep licenses than any other state. The bulk of the sheep inhabit the northwestern portion of the state. This area, around Yellowstone Park, consists of vast expanses of pristine wilderness that can only be accessed by horseback. Hunters here can expect to stay in wall-tent or spike camps during the course of their hunt.
If you are successful in drawing a sheep tag in Wyoming, regardless of the unit, a high quality hunt is to be expected. These sheep herds are intensely micro managed to ensure mature rams are present to hunt. Every unit in the state is capable of producing a 170+ ram with a couple of sheep going over 180 being harvested every year.
Wyoming issues 75% of it’s non-resident bighorn tags to applicants with max points. If you are sitting at or near max point status - call us - as we can offer immediate assistance in drawing a tag and recommending a reputable outfitter. Wyoming then issues the remaining 25% of its non-resident bighorn tags through a random draw. This means you can draw a Wyoming bighorn license the first year you apply. Licenses can also be purchased at auction. If you purchase a license at auction it will typically qualify as a tax deductible charity contribution.
