Nonresident fees are $1,764 for mountain goat, and another $1,764 for bighorn sheep. Colorado also offers a small number of Desert Sheep tags, but these are resident-only.

To draw a tag in Colorado, you'll need to apply for 3 years, without a chance of drawing, to build prefence points. Once you have 3 preference points, you are eligible to draw. For every year you're eligible and you do not draw, you get a bonus point for the next year's draw.

It will take a while to draw in Colorado, but I feel that it's one of the more attractive opportunities for goats and Rocky Mountain bighorns in The West.

An electronic version of the Sheep and Goat brochure is available on the CDOW's website.

Applications are due April 1.
