TEXAS DESERT BIGHORN SHEEP
Desert Sheep hunting is one of the most prestigious hunts in the world, and is something we take very seriously here at HWO. We take great pride in each clients trophy, and treat them as if it was our own. Texas boasts a strong population of Deserts in multiple different rugged mountain ranges. The states total population is upwards of 1,500 animals, and the trophy quality is as good as anywhere in the world. All of our hunts are conducted on private landowner tags, which allows the booked client exclusive rights to that certain area. Sheep hunting is physically demanding, and will require a hunter to be in top mental and physical shape.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife conducts their annual census survey to issue “general” permits in August of each year. Once the survey is complete the numbers will be put into a formula, which will determine the number of tags issued in each respective mountain range. Our permits are revealed by the first day of September each year, which will then be valid to hunt through the following July. This 11 month season allows each customer a high success rate on large rams through a variety of different seasons.
Each client is treated to a top knotch sheep hunt, and is provided with a governors tag type feel. We pride ourselves in harvesting a mature 8+ year old average across the board each year, with many rams meeting the all-time B&C record book minimum. Come out and see why Texas is one of the most proven states for their Desert Bighorn; and add to, or start your collection of Wild Sheep here with us.

I have been in the business and studied sheep since I was a young teenager, I grew up on a ranch that boasts a large population of this rare species. I have a love for hunting sheep that most people wouldn’t understand. I spend well over 200 days each year hunting some type of sheep, and have all the gear it takes to make your hunt a success. We hope you choose to book your hunt with us here at High West Outfitters. My staff and I are committed to giving you the hunt you deserve and a trophy of a lifetime!
