2020 Annual Banquet

Dear IDWSF Members, Sponsors, and Donors,

Due to the current outbreak of Coronavirus the Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation has made the tough decision to reschedule our Fundraiser to June 13, 2020.  This decision was not taken lightly and our plan of holding an Epic Banquet & Fundraiser is still in place.  Our main concern is for the safety of our Membership, Sponsors, Donors and Volunteers.

This morning Brad Little, Governor of Idaho, addressed the State regarding the outbreak of Coronavirus. At this time Idaho doesn’t currently have any active cases, but his medical staff stated that it is inevitable that someone in the near future will test positive based on what is being seen around the world. Idaho has filed a State of Emergency so that our State agencies can have quicker access to personal protective equipment, test kits, and facilities when Idaho begins to deal with active cases. The recommendation was made that groups larger than 250 be postponed.

Our event was very close to being at capacity and your registration and payment will automatically be moved to the June 13, 2020 date to save your reservation.  We fully understand that this delay may create a conflict for those that planned to attend and we will provide a full refund to any that are not able to make our event or, your payment can be moved to a tax deductible donation to Idaho Wild Sheep.  Our Board and Staff will work diligently to respond to any questions and emails as they come in, but please understand as a 100% volunteer group there may be a slight delay in response as we work through the anticipated volume of inquiries and refund requests.

If you had a hotel room booked at The Hampton Inn under our room block, you have already been moved to June 13th.  If you need to cancel your room, please contact The Hampton Inn direct at 208-331-1900.  If you booked elsewhere, please call them direct to move or cancel.

Rest assured that we remain fully committed to hosting this event on June 13, 2020.  Lastly, as we all have a responsibility as citizens to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus, the Governor has recommended that each of us follow the CDC Guidelines closely to keep your families, community, and colleagues safe.

Best Regards,

Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation Board of Directors

Idaho Wild Sheep

About Us

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.

Idaho Wild Sheep

Our Mission

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.
