North Dakota Bighorn Sheep Auction License Sells for $42,000
North Dakota’s 2012 bighorn sheep auction license sold for $42,000 at the March 17 Midwest Chapter of the Wild Sheep Foundation annual meeting in Bloomington, Minn.
North Dakota’s auction license allows the winning bidder the rare privilege of pursuing a North Dakota bighorn on a self-guided hunt.
One hundred percent of the auction license proceeds, plus an additional $10,000 donated by MCWSF, are used to enhance bighorn sheep management in North Dakota.
In addition, a 5 percent conservation fee for all auction licenses generated an additional $2,100 from the sale of North Dakota’s license for wild sheep conservation.
