Sheep Horn Bow Returns!

Bighorn Sheep horn bow donated to Bighorn Sheep Center, Dubois

A fabulous donation has just come our way! The hand-crafted bighorn sheep horn bow, made by Tom Lucas and donated by him to our annual fundraiser auction, has returned! Mr. Tim Bernard, after having purchased the bow last November for $7,500 has now most graciously donated it back to the Bighorn Sheep Center for exhibition. This donation has been made in memory of his late wife, Teri Bernard. Many, many thanks to Mr. Bernard for his generosity. Here is Tim Bernard, left, and Tom Lucas (our heroes) recently enjoying a few minutes talking archery together.

What is a bighorn sheep?

Our Mission:

The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Association is dedicated to educating the public about the biology and habitat needs of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep and to encouraging the active stewardship of wildlife and wild lands.

Our Interpretive Center features dioramas with full-scale taxidermy mounts that recreate the bighorns habitat, interactive exhibits about wildlife management and special adaptations of wild sheep, and wildlife films the whole family will enjoy.
