The Javier Artee family is proud to continue our strong partnership with the Wild
Sheep Foundation in restoring free-ranging desert bighorn sheep to historic
habitat within Sonora, Mexico. Established in 2017, Sierra El Alamo spans over
80,000 acres, and is located approximately 160 miles south of Tucson, AZ, 180
miles north of Hermosillo, and 30 miles east of the Sea of Cortez. The bighorn
population is strong and growing. Desert bighorn sheep hunting was reinstated
within the area in 2017 following 12-year prohibition; now, after 4 years of
hard work, 18 desert sheep have been harvested, 6 of them exceeding 180+ and
the rest in the 170 class. Only 1 tag will be offered for the 2023-2024 season.
Proceeds from the sale of this tag will be dedicated 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, and other WSF conservation projects. This tag provides the opportunity at current rates ($65,000 USD). Over the last 4years, 175 desert bighorns have been successfully translocated to Sierra El Alamo, and in 2022 will release between 30 and 50 more, which will put above
the goal of 200 animals in 5 years, the total will be 205 to 225 released.
Thank you for your continued support in putting and keeping free-ranging desert
bighorn sheep in the mountains of Sonora, Mexico!
