About Idaho Wild Sheep

The Mission

The mission of Idaho Wild Sheep is to enhance wild sheep populations in Idaho, and with partners in adjacent states, for public enjoyment, education, and fair chase hunting; to promote professional wildlife management, and protect sportsmen's rights.



The Idaho Wild Sheep was founded in 1982 by two dozen concerned sportsmen who wanted to “put more bighorns on Idaho’s mountains”.

From that core group, many of which are still very active on our board and committees, we have grown to a thriving organization with over 400 committed members.

2018 Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation Annual Banquet and Fundraiser is set for Saturday, March 17, 2018!

Asian Mountain Outfitters offers a unique and adventurous mountain hunting experience in Kyrgyzstan, for one of most incredible mountain sheep in the world, the majestic Marco Polo. This is actually the Hume Argali, a subspecies of the Marco Polo sheep.  This hunt can be upgraded to a Tajikistan Marco Polo, with the hunters playing the difference in price between the two. 

The hunt will be Oct. or Nov. 2018; it is approximately 7-8 days of hunting, plus travel.  Arrangements can be made to postpone hunt until 2019

Hunt is conducted on horseback/foot in high elevations (11,000-13,500’).  Most of the hunting areas have a heated house or cabin and if spiking out, the hunter will use backpack style tents.  This is not a North American Hunt; hunters need to be prepared for cultural/language differences, long range and sometimes quick shooting (proficient at 500+ yards).  The climates are similar to the high & dry areas of CO, NM and NV. All Kyrgyzstan hunting licenses and fees are included;

Upgrades: Add a non-hunter for $2,500.  If space is available, an additional hunter is $27,500 for one Marco Polo.  A Mid-Asian Ibex can be added to this hunt for an additional $5,000.00. Typical sizes for Marco Polo Rams are 47”-52” and Ibex range average 38”-46”. Considerably larger animals of both species have been taken.

Not included: the flight to and from Bishkek via Turkish Air/Istanbul, Airport VIP service, meals and lodging while in Bishkek (usually 2-3 nights), shipping of trophies home and staff tips

Asian Mountain Outfitters works with partners in several different hunting areas. Our Managers/partners will meet clients at airport and assist in all aspects of the hunts.  The best local guides typically do not speak English, but are skilled hunters and horsemen.  If it is your first trip to Central Asia, we can arrange a Western/English speaking guide to accompany you (price is a minimum of $5,000 USD plus all their travel and trip expenses).  Donated by Asian Mountain Outfitters

Mid-Asian Ibex in Kyrgyzstan  or Tajikistan.     Asian Mountain Outfitters

Asian Mountain Outfitters offers a unique and adventurous mountain hunting experience for Mid-Asian Ibex in either Kyrgyzstan or Tajikistan.  This is not a North American Hunt; hunters need to be prepared for cultural/language differences, long range and sometimes quick shooting (proficient at 500+ yards).  The climates are similar to the high & dry areas of CO, NM and NV. Hunters have the option of shooting a second Ibex ($5,000), Roe Buck (Kyrgyz) or Wild Boar (Tajik) on a trophy fee basis.

This Ibex hunt includes 5-7 hunting days. It requires a hunter to be relatively fit and experienced in mountain hunting.  Typical Ibex size ranges from 38 - 47”, average is about 42/43”.  Ibex over 47” are possible, for very fit and tough hunters willing to spike out in often harsh conditions.  Some hunting areas have bigger Ibex and some have easier hunting/access with nice camps. A non-horseback hunt (using pack donkeys and foot/jeep hunting) can be done in Tajikistan. 
The hunt is for 2018, but arrangements can be made for 2019.  The most hunt are Sept. and Oct., but the season runs from August 15th thru Dec. 1st in Kyrgyzstan and Sept. 1st through Feb. 28th in Tajikistan.  All hunting licenses and fees are included in the hunt.

Asian Mountain Outfitters works with partners in several different hunting areas.  Our Manager/interpreter/partners will meet clients at airport and assist in all aspects of the hunts.  The best local guides typically do not speak English, but are skilled hunters and horsemen.  If it is your first trip to Central Asia, we can arrange a Western/English speaking guide to accompany you (price is a minimum of $5,000 USD plus all their travel and trip expenses).  Hunters who elect to hunt with just the local guides need to be able to assist in trophy judging & oversee skin preparations. The best attitude is to go prepared as if it is a Self-guided hunt, combined with local guides.  This hunt can be upgraded to a Hume Argali in Kyrgyzstan or a Marco Polo in Tajikistan.

The Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation is involved in a number of activities, programs and issues dealing with bighorn sheep in the state of Idaho. The money raised during our banquet is used for operations, addressing pertinent bighorn conservation issues working on special projects, fighting political threats and keeping you our supporters informed and engaged. The links in the left margin of our home page highlights a few of the issues and programs IWSF has been involved with recently.

Funding, Sponsors and Donors

Funding for the Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation

Like any other non-profit 501-3-C organization, IWSF relies on revenues either raised at annual fund raising events and/or donations from individual sponsors or donors. That is the sum extent of monies the IWSF has to operate on annually; we do not have endowments or benefactors that augment or supplement our annual fund raising event.

Whether you are a sportsman, hunter or a wildlife advocate that believes strongly the bighorn resource of Idaho should be a sustained, preserved and increased for future generations, we need your support. At the close of every year, non-profit organizations, such as IWSF ask for donations which may help provide a business or individual relief to taxable income. If you are invested in Idaho and our wildlife resources, please consider a donation or include IWSF in your estate planning. Your gifts will truly be a reinvestment in a species that has occupied the mountains and canyon lands of Idaho for over 18,000 years. Bighorn sheep are survivors as evidenced by the fact animals like the Wooly Mammoths disappear from our landscape over 10,000 years ago. They survived very well until European man appeared with their associated impacts. This resource is in trouble and needs our help. Please contact our office if you have questions or would like help.

Please support our sponsors when you require their products
