NOTICE of CTUIR 2021

Bighorn Sheep Limited Entry Hunt

The CTUIR Fish and Wildlife Commission, in recognition of the Treaty-reserved right to harvest and of the sensitive nature of the harvest of these reintroduced and extremely limited bighorn sheep populations, will use a hunt-tag draw system for tribal harvest of bighorn sheep in Oregon. The draw system will be conducted to optimize hunt opportunities to benefit the greatest number of tribal hunters possible. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age to apply. Permit applications and complete application procedures will be available from Fish and Wildlife Program staff or Fish and Wildlife Commission or on the CTUIR Web site.

 

Hunt drawing will be conducted in public by the Commission at their regularly scheduled Commission meeting on July 27, 2021. This method, and the public setting, will assure that no bias is introduced to the draw program and provide clear accountability to the Tribal public. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for public safety during the COVIC-19 pandemic will be adhered to.
