The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission selected two organizations to auction the 2004 moose and sheep hunting licenses. The annual bighorn sheep and Shiras moose hunting license auctions raise funds for bighorn and moose management efforts.
The bighorn sheep license auction will be conducted by the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep at the foundation’s annual convention Jan. 14-17, 2004. Earlier this year, the highest bid for the bighorn sheep license brought in $132,000.
The moose auction will be conducted by Butte’s Skyline Sportsman’s Association at an association event yet to be scheduled.
Earlier this year, the moose license auction, which was conducted by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, brought in $19,000.
