We’re excited to announce the 2024 event will be Saturday, February 17, 2024 in the Grand Ballroom of the Salt Palace. Due to restrictions related to the Salt Palace, COVID, etc, the event will be a ticketed event with only 1750 tickets sold. Tickets will be $100 and are included with an attending Sheep Camp membership.
Can I get a ticket the day of the event? What if you sell out?
Maybe, but with only 1750 tickets available, we are predicting they will go fast. Once we sell out, there will be no additional tickets sold. If tickets are still available when the Hunt Expo begins, we will sell them at our booth, then the door the day of the event. Both will be first come, first serve. We will announce tickets remaining on the website to try to keep people up to date. You will only be able to attend in person with a ticket. We HIGHLY recommend if you plan on attending to buy your ticket ASAP. There will be no exceptions as we are limited to the total number of people that can be in the Grand Ballroom.
Can I bring my spouse and/or kids?
Yes, but because of the limited number of people allowed in for the event, every person will need to have a ticket. This actually falls in line with all other Western Hunting & Conservation (Hunt Expo) events. Auctions, dinners/entertainment, etc. are all ticketed events. We realize this might be a little inconvenient but this is actually in the best interest of the hunters/attendees. By charging for each entrant we’re able to give away more sheep hunts. We’re literally taking the fees from these tickets and giving away hunts for ALL FOUR species of sheep and THIRTEEN total! We will have additional LIMITED prizes that entrants under the age of 18 will be eligible for.
Where will I pick up my event ticket and/or sheep tickets?
For 2024, you will be able to pick up your Sheep Camp entrance ticket and Sheep drawing tickets at the Sheep Camp exhibit booth (#2044) inside the exhibit hall OR the day of the event inside the Grand Ballroom.
What’s the difference between Limited Event hunts vs Limited Restricted hunts?
Both sets of hunts require you to be in attendance to win. Both are limited to 5 total for each type, per person. Limited Event tickets (5) will be given to you when you check in with your Event Ticket at the Grand Ballroom or booth. These 4 sheep hunts (1 per species) we will be given away for those attending the event. Limited Restricted tickets are set aside for those who have never killed a sheep, never killed a Dall and/or never killed a Fannin/Stone. You can only purchase 5 of these tickets for $100 per person.
What are Unlimited hunts?
Unlimited hunts offer no restrictions on the number of tickets sold. Two (2) of the Sheep hunts will required you to be present to win. Four (4) Sheep hunts will NOT require you to be present to win. Of these 4 hunts, like in years past, we will give away 1 Sheep of each species of the Full Curl.
Terms and Conditions
If you’re one of the lucky winners who wins a sheep hunt please be aware of several things you need to know that aren’t covered in our General Rules. First off, all of these hunts are full price hunts paid for by Sheep Camp. With that in mind, once you win, you are now the client of the outfitter. Think of it as you just paid the outfitter for the guided sheep hunt. Having this mindset will help you as you move forward with your hunt. You will be responsible for transportation, GST (Canadian hunts), licenses, license fees and tips. You will also be responsible to remain in contact with outfitter regarding your hunt. Sheep hunts are very rigorous hunts with ever changing conditions, weather, herd status, etc. No two hunts are ever the same and nobody, especially the outfitter can predict a set outcome. Sheep Camp, it’s affiliates, employees, and partners ARE NOT responsible for any issues including, but not limited to, scheduling conflicts, weather, travel interruptions, not killing a sheep, sickness/illness, medical conditions, death or dismemberment, gear failure, the guides or outfitters nor anything related to your hunt. Again, once you win the hunt, any issues related to that hunt are between you and the outfitter. Please keep this in mind when either applying or if successful in one of our drawings.
We often get asked about tips. While not required, we highly encourage you to tip your guide whether successful or not. Standard tips are usually 5-10% the value of the hunt.
For those who have never hunted sheep please understand these hunts can be very physically and mentally challenging. Please come in the best physical shape and mental state as possible for your hunt. That’s how you can BEST contribute to the success of YOUR hunt.
