Nebraska Bighorn Permit Auctions for $117,500
The state of Nebraska auctions off one bighorn permit per year and this year's high bid topped out at $117,500. According to Nebraska State Paper, the permit was sold to a German citizen that presumably phoned in the winning bid.
The successful bid includes four days of guide service, meals and lodging at Fort Robinson State Park. Nebraska’s bighorn season runs from November 29th through December 22nd. Money from the auction goes to the commission’s program for managing the bighorn sheep herd.
