Texas Bighorn Society

Location: WEST, Texas

Texas Bighorn Society (TBS) was founded in 1981 by a group of dedicated hunters and conservationists who were unwilling to accept that desert bighorns had vanished from Texas. In pursuit of their mission – to return desert bighorn sheep to all their native ranges in Texas, and to insure the viability of their habitat – TBS has invested millions of dollars and countless hours of volunteer labor in returning bighorns to our state.

Supplemented with transplant desert bighorns from Arizona, Nevada and Utah, TBS constructed a breeding facility in 1983.  To date, more than 175 lambs have been raised and released into the mountains of Texas from this facility, providing transplant stock for additional herds across the state. Beginning in 1996, Elephant Mountain WMA has been the site of the Texas Grand Slam Hunt, which has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars for sheep management in Texas. Today, nearly 1500 bighorns roam seven locations in the mountains of West Texas, but the story is not over… TBS is dedicated to returning bighorns to all their native ranges in the state, with the goal of doubling the current population. All money raised from membership dues and the annual Roundup Weekend and Auction is used exclusively to help return desert bighorns to the mountains and people of Texas.
