About Idaho Wild Sheep

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.

History: 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 300 committed members.

Bighorns' Deadliest Obstacle

In August 2011, observers reported domestic sheep roaming California bighorn habitat in Nevada’s Snowstorm Mountains. In the same month, wildlife biologists noticed bighorns in the region were dying from pneumonia, which substantially reduced herd numbers (DeLong 2011). This deadly trend has become common not only in Nevada but also across much of the American West.
