Here is your chance at the hunt of a lifetime; a 10-day opportunity to harvest a desert bighorn ram in far West Texas! Through this exclusive offering, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) is providing one hunter a chance at the next available desert bighorn on either the Elephant Mountain, Sierra Diablo or Black Gap Wildlife Management Area. This fully guided and outfitted hunt hosted by TPWD staff will likely occur between Sept. 1, 2020 and July 31, 2021, and will last 10 days unless a ram is harvested sooner. The Texas Wildlife Association Foundation secured the privilege of auctioning this permit, which will generate vital funds supporting TPWD’s Desert Bighorn Program dedicated to desert bighorn sheep restoration, management and research. Proceeds also fund the augmentation of existing bighorn populations and their reintroduction into unoccupied mountain ranges.
From the collection of Larry Weishuhn, Co-Founder of Texas Wildlife Association, this Ruger No. 1, Single-shot Rifle in .30-06 Springfield, has excellent wood, the receiver is engraved with TWA logo and 1985-2020 on one side. The other side is engraved with a whitetail deer head study drawn by Larry Weishuhn, beneath which is Larry Weishuhn’s signature… This is a one of a kind! In subsequent years Larry Weishuhn will attempt to donate one rifle per year, of a different caliber, with a different hand drawn logo, to show another primary Texas big game species. NOT AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC. Bid now here!
