Welcome to the Wild Sheep Society of BC (WSSBC)

We are a non-profit registered Society dedicated to the protection and enhancement of wild sheep and wild sheep habitat throughout “Beautiful British Columbia”.

BC is very fortunate to be home to the largest and most diverse populations of wild sheep of any other province, state or territory in North America. From the dry desert-like climate of the southern interior to the glacial northern most corner along the Yukon border, you can find 4 sub-species of sheep spread across this province. They have adapted to and thrive in some of the harshest environments and they continue to be an iconic symbol of our BC wilderness.

First Nations peoples have long had a deep relationship with wild sheep and an understanding of their importance in the ecosystem. Sheep have also historically had many uses for First Nations including providing for sustenance, societal and ceremonial needs. More recently, they have become highly valued by wildlife enthusiasts for wildlife viewing, as a sign of wilderness and a healthy environment, and as one of the most challenging big game species a hunter can pursue.

The WSSBC was formed in 1998 by a group of dedicated sportsmen and women that recognized the challenges wild sheep face, and decided to take action. They believed it was their responsibility to protect the species they had come to admire. Since then, the Society has grown to hundreds of members provincially and internationally whose crucial funds and volunteer time are funneled into projects around BC with the goal of “Putting More Sheep On The Mountains”. Through our collective efforts, the WSSBC funds wild sheep science and research projects, habitat enhancement and protection projects, and transplants of sheep into unoccupied or historically occupied areas. During our annual Fundraiser and Convention, we engage our membership and the public with updates on the status of our wild sheep populations throughout the province, the latest on our projects and research, awareness of wild sheep health and disease issues, and other educational events related to wild sheep and sheep hunting.

We invite you to tour through our website and learn more about our wild sheep in BC, and we encourage you to become part of our efforts to sustain “Wild Sheep Forever”!

In 2018 we are very excited to be working with Clay Lancaster and Lancaster Expeditions. Clay has supported the Wild Sheep Society of BC through donation and seminars at our fundraisers in the past. Clay is a BC born and raised guide and outfitter from a family with a long and successful history in the industry. He has been guiding and outfitting for Desert Bighorns since the early 2000’s all over Mexico. This year’s Desert Sheep hunt will be based from Hermosillo, Mexico on one of Clay’s regular hunting spots and Clay himself will guide the winner. Lodging is right at the ranch headquarters and much more comfortable than your typical BC sheep hunt! All travel to, from and during the hunt as well as accommodations, licenses and tags are included. Hunt dates will be subject to the winners schedule in December 2018 or January 2019. Our second prize is the gold standard of sheep hunting optics, a Swarovski ATS 20-60 x 65mm HD angled spotting scope. It has been fully donated by Omer Hrbinic and Precision Optics of Quesnel, BC. Omer has a great reputation as a premium optics dealer and we are excited to have him on board! www.precisionoptics.net/. Finally, our third prize, also fully donated by a continued supporter that needs no introduction, Kuiu Ultralight Hunting, is a MountainStar 2P Tent and an Icon Pro 7200 backpack! www.kuiu.com/global/
As always the profits from the WSR Raffles will be used for on the ground wild sheep habitat enhancement projects and critical habitat property purchases in BC. This raffle has been a big part of the growth and increased project funding we have been able to accomplish in the last few years for the betterment of BC’s wild sheep. The WSSBC appreciates your continued support through ticket purchases and we also encourage you to support the companies that support our conservation efforts through donation.
GOOD LUCK!
