About Bighorn Sheep Hunting in Wyoming

Limited Quota

Obtaining a bighorn sheep license is akin to winning the lottery. New applicants with no preference points will at least have a mathematical chance to draw a license if they apply in areas with larger license quotas since 25 percent of the quota in those areas is issued through the random draw. Drawing odds in the random draw are typically less than 1 percent. A full price bighorn sheep license is a once-in-a-life time license.  A successful applicant of an ewe lamb bighorn sheep must wait five years before applying again.


Hunting bighorn sheep is different from most other big game hunting since most bighorn sheep occupy remote areas within designated wilderness areas. Hunting bighorn sheep is logistically more difficult and physically demanding and typically involves packing gear long distances into rugged country, often at very high elevations. Because of this and Wyoming’s wilderness guide law, nonresidents who draw a bighorn sheep license should anticipate hunting with a guide. Average hunter success is typically around 75 percent. Bighorn sheep must be checked and registered at a regional Game and Fish office or at the Cheyenne office within 15 days of harvest.
