Hunter Orientation Rescheduled Due to Fires

The Sheep and Goat Hunter Orientation scheduled for this Saturday, June 15th at the Douglas County Fairgrounds is postponed. The new date is July 13th, right before the best scouting period.

The DOW regrets that Hayman Wildfire, burning southwest of Denver, forced this difficult decision. The Douglas County Fairgrounds is now a firefighter staging area and "emergency shelter" for large animals evacuated in the fire.

The Rocky Mountain Bighorn Society and the Denver Safari club will still draw the sheep, goat and mule deer raffle licenses that day at 1 PM. The location for those drawings has been moved. The new location is within one mile of the Douglas County Fairgrounds and is open to the public. Drawings will be held at the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Society Board meeting at the residence of Bill Moye, 2661 Castle Crest Drive, Castlerock, CO 80104.

We will update this website early next week with a new schedule, location and the names of the raffle license winners. For more information, see the Auction and Raffle Information page.
