One Big Rack for sale

Idaho Fish and Game Commission approved one bighorn sheep hunting tag to be sold at auction next year. Last year, the one authorized tag sold at auction sold for $180,000.

Last week, Idaho Fish and Game drew the name of Eagle resident Ed Rochnowski for this year's Big Horn Sheep lottery tag, in a lottery which sold $68,000 worth of tickets. Money raised in these lotteries and auctions supports research in wild bighorn sheep at the state laboratory in Caldwell.
