Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission & Department, the Wyoming
Governor’s Big Game License Coalition, and the Wyoming Wild Sheep Foundation
are pleased to provide the Wild Sheep Foundation with a 2022 Rocky Mountain
bighorn sheep license for auction.
The 2022 Wyoming Governor’s Bighorn Sheep License is valid in any open hunt area having more
than 8 Type 1 ram licenses issued. The number of licenses issued per hunt area
may change from year to year. Seasons and license numbers for fall 2022 will be
finalized in April 2022. In 2021, this license was valid in six hunt areas: #1,
2, 3, 4, 5, and 7. These hunt areas account for approximately 75% of Wyoming’s
annual Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep harvest. For further information, please
contact Doug McWhirter, Wyoming Game and Fish Department, 307.733.2321, or
Daryl Lutz, Wyoming Game and Fish Department, 307.335.2616, or Zach McDermott,
WY Wild Sheep Foundation 307.752.1212.
Successful purchaser may hunt any open hunt area that qualifies in accordance with the above. The
purchaser does not have to pick a specific hunt area and may hunt different
hunt areas. The five-year waiting period between bighorn sheep licenses does
not affect the ability to purchase a Governor’s bighorn sheep license, and
purchasing this license is independent of applying for a bighorn sheep license
through the draw system. The license fee ($152 for resident, $2,320 for non-resident) is waived. Preference points are not affected by purchase of a WY Governor’s Bighorn Sheep License. 90% of
the auction proceeds provide funding for Wyoming bighorn sheep projects via the
Wyoming Governor’s Big Game License Coalition.
