The National Bighorn Sheep Center has most graciously been awarded several Commissioner's Licenses by members of the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission. One remaining license will be sold by public auction on June 3, 2017. Please see the Events page for details on this license. A Commissioner's license allows the holder to hunt deer, elk or antelope and is valid for a specific region or hunt area as designated by the license holder at the time of application. Additional information may be found on the Wyoming Game & Fish Commission site.

What is a bighorn sheep?

Our Mission:

The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Association is dedicated to educating the public about the biology and habitat needs of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep and to encouraging the active stewardship of wildlife and wild lands.

Our Interpretive Center features dioramas with full-scale taxidermy mounts that recreate the bighorns habitat, interactive exhibits about wildlife management and special adaptations of wild sheep, and wildlife films the whole family will enjoy.
