Bryan Moore of Boise won the raffle drawing for the hunt of a lifetime, an Idaho bighorn sheep tag raffled by the Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation.
The 22nd annual raffle raised $86,115 that will be spent toward the benefit and enhancement of bighorn sheep in Idaho. This year's total was $10,000 more than last year's drawing.
Hunters from throughout the U.S. apply for this tag because it allows the recipient to hunt in Unit 11 in Hells Canyon, which consistently produces record-book rams. It's been five years since the tag went to an Idaho resident.
