Home | Big Game Guide | Regulations | Lottery Application | Distribution Map

2013 Forecast: The Nebraska Game and Parks Commissioners approved a recommendation to not authorize any bighorn sheep hunting permits for 2013. A bighorn status report revealed that too few mature rams were available to allow hunting.

NOTE: Penalty for unlawful take or possession of bighorn sheep or parts thereof may exceed $5,000.

Lottery and Auction:
Proceeds from lottery entries and auctions have raised nearly $800,000 for the Bighorn Sheep Program. These proceeds are a critical revenue source for the program.
