Commissioner's Hunting License Auctions

The National Bighorn Sheep Center has most graciously been awarded several Commissioner's Licenses by members of the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission. Please see the Events page for the available licenses. 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. Proceeds from two license sales will directly support the mission of the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center, "dedicated to educating the public about the habitat and conservation needs of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep and to encouraging the active stewardship of wildlife and wild lands." The Bighorn Sheep Center is also acting as selling agent for three licenses that are specifically designated to support the Whiskey Mountain Conservation Camp renovation project. Additional information may be found on the Wyoming Game & Fish Commission site.
The Bighorns Thank You!

Please note our new winter hours beginning Monday, Jan. 2, 2017. The Center will be closed on Mondays through March, 2017. Feel free to contact the Center by phone at
