which states have desert bighorn hunts?

I was wanting to start looking for states that have desert bighorn hunts. Does anyone know which states offer these hunts? I imagine they are all draw tags and wanted to start the research.

thanks

Here are a few states and the approx cost of the NR tag off the top of my head.

Nevada $1,200.00
New Mexico $3,010.00
Utah $1,513.00
Arizona $915.00
California $500

Other states may have populations of them but either not enough to hunt or do not allow and NR to apply for a tag.

MNHunter named most of the states.

Texas also has desert bighorns in the western part of the state. Tags are occasionally available through a public draw, but that hasn't happened for two years now. There is one tag/hunt offered in Texas through the "Big Time Hunts" raffle program they do.

There are desert bighorn tags available in Colorado also, but they are limited to residents.

I stand corrected, or confused, or both. South if I-84 is desert-ISH anyway. But now I ask the question - where does the Calif Bighorn fall in the Slam? Or does it? And my second question: Tim - what will you be chasing this year? Have you latched onto another sheep tag?
