Remember that Alaska Governor's Dall Sheep permit we told you about? The tag was auctioned at the Grand Slam Club/OVIS convention this February 9-12 in Tunica, Mississippi, in conjunction with the Conklin Foundation. It gives the holder the right to hunt three areas in the Chugach Mountains that have not been hunted in 25 years. So how much did the permit go for? The winning bid was $100,000. Other special permits auctioned at the convention included a Wyoming Governor's Permit for moose ($12,000); a Wyoming Governor's Permit for bighorn sheep ($47,500); a Carmen Island desert bighorn permit in Mexico ($75,000); and a South Baja desert bighorn ($42,000). Altogether, the auction raised 1.15 million dollars for Grand Slam Club/ OVIS, which expects to fund a cumulative total of more than two million dollars in sheep conversation projects this year.
