Two lucky hunters won prized bighorn sheep permits in a record-breaking raffle conducted by the New Mexico chapter of the Wild Sheep Foundation in June. The raffle sold more than 7,000 tickets and earned $143,000 for the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish’s bighorn sheep program, said Eric Rominger, bighorn sheep biologist for the department. Twice as many $20 raffle tickets were sold this year than last year for the chance to hunt for either a Rocky Mountain or desert bighorn sheep, Rominger said.

Cody, Wyoming, USA. July 15, 2015 – The Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) congratulates WSF Life Member and Marco Polo Society Member Mrs. Barbara Sackman, who has been named the 2015 Weatherby Hunting and Conservation Award winner!
Barbara’s hunting started on a wager! If she was permitted to take a photo of a South African P.H. dressed in a tux (next to impossible), then she had to come hunt the next time in Africa – deal!
