2020 Harvest Inspections

Successful hunters for bighorn sheep ram, mountain goat and bear who have their harvest physically inspected at a Department office will not be required to return a 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.
