Bighorn Sheep proposals

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) is proposing increases in some Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep hunts in response to an increase in the number of mature rams observed in recent counts.  Additionally, we are proposing a change in Hunt Areas 20A and 26, and a new hunt in Hunt Area 51-1.  Minor reductions are proposed in the number of California Bighorn Sheep tags.

The changes are listed below in the following categories:

  • Rocky mountain bighorn rams
    • Total tag count changed from 74 to 83
  • California bighorn rams
    • Total tag count changed from 21 to 17
  • Hunt Area Descriptions
