Bighorn Sheep Hunting

Due to the limited number of bighorn sheep, only South Dakota residents are offered the opportunity to take part in the unique hunts.

Bighorn Sheep Season & Location

The Bighorn Sheep hunting season typically runs from Sept – Dec for South Dakota residents who are awarded a license. Applications are due in May.

Bighorn Sheep can be found in the Black Hills region.

Applying for a License

Like all big game hunting in the state you must apply for a license. The licenses are issued in a lottery type system to help maintain the population. To learn more about the hunting dates and licensing information please check our South Dakota Hunting License page.
