LA-47 2011-12 Tiburon Island Desert Bighorn Sheep Hunt

15-Day Outfitted hunt for one hunter and one non-hunting companion

The Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) and the Seri Community have again entered into an agreement for WSF to be the principle selling agent for the harvest of desert bighorn sheep on Tiburon Island.

This is a 15-day fully outfitted hunt for one hunter and one non hunting companion. Additional non hunting companions maybe added at $1,500 per person. The highest winning auction bidder will have first choice of the WSF hunt dates with successive buyers in bid order choosing remaining
dates. Two hunters will be on the island during each hunt period although they will be in separate camps and hunt separate areas.

In 1998 WSF helped to open desert sheep hunting on the island and nearly each year a Tiburon Island ram has taken the WSF silver or gold award for desert bighorn sheep in both the archery and the firearms categories. These rams include numerous rams in the high 170s and 180s and one exceptional trophy scoring over 190 B&C points. A 2009 buyer took a near record archery ram green scoring 179 2/8” during early January 2010 and a ram that ties the number one SCI muzzleloader ram at 177 2/8 was also taken in 2010. Numerous 180+ rams were taken in 2009 and 2010 including our 2010 Rifle Award of Excellence winner with a 186 4/8 B&C score.

Starting with the 2010-2011 desert sheep hunting season, The Wild Sheep Foundation and Desert-Hunt, operated by Braulio and Luis Romero, have formed a partnership to conduct all government sanctioned hunting on Tiburon Island. Both WSF and Desert-Hunt are committed to conserving the exceptional sheep resource on the Island while preserving the special hunting opportunity it offers while also ensuring community development programs for the Seri Community owners of this treasured landscape. Desert-Hunt is renowned for providing exceptional desert sheep hunts,
