The Idaho Fish and Game Commission released two 2017 bighorn sheep tags, one for lottery and one for auction, at its meeting in Jerome, Thursday, July 7.
The lottery tag was awarded to Idaho Wild Sheep and the auction tag was awarded to the Wild Sheep Foundation. The groups will market the 2017 tags as fund-raisers with proceeds going to benefit Idaho Department of Fish and Game's bighorn sheep research and management.
