Big Horn Sheep

I live in Ohio, and I was wondering if anyone out there in the Rockies could give me a clue the odds of ever drawing an out of state tag on a Big Horn Ram.

Most western states have

Most western states have lottery style draw, for most big game with preference points to increase the odds.  Cant speak for everywhere but in wyoming, it takes about 12-14 years to accumilate enough points to get a tag for a ram,  probably canada or alaska might be better bets than the rockies.  hope this helps

If this is a "next couple

If this is a "next couple years" deal than I would suggest looking into guided hunts in Canada. I believe Alberta has some really good sheep hunting. It's like winning the lottery to get ram tags in CO.

there's always some good ones

there's always some good ones taken in idaho every year but it's a bit spendy at 1,765.75 which includes your tag, license, and app fee. most of the big one's including the 197 7/8 were shot in unit 11. but with there only being one tag in unit 11 it would suit you well to apply for one of the salmon of the hunts in the river of no return wilderness.

As was said if you feel lucky

As was said if you feel lucky you can put in for one of the western states that has them or go with an outfitter.  I have a friend that has a grand slam of sheep and he did most of it through the draws.  He is the luckiest person that I know of.  Either that or the $100 bill that  he taped to his application did some good.  Just for looking here is a web site that does sheep hunts for you.

the wildsheep foundation or

the wildsheep foundation or the grand slam club would be of help to you.

IF you want to apply in the us start now and eventually you will draw a tag.

if you go to canada expect to pay alot of money.  $30,000.00 plus.
