New this year

Successful hunters that have their harvest physically inspected at a Department office for bighorn sheep ram, mountain goat, and bear will not be required to return a hunter harvest questionnaire. Unsuccessful hunters for these species will still need to complete the hunter harvest questionnaire. Successful applicants for bighorn sheep ewe and mountain goat tags will need to watch an online seminar before their tags will be mailed to them. Bighorn sheep ewe hunters are not required to have their harvest physically inspected at a Department office.
