    Default Governor's Permit?

    Does anyone know how the winner of the Governor's sheep permit did this year?

    Default Governor's Permits Results

    The Conklin Foundation won the 14C permit (the Department could have done better on this choice), and Utah FNAWS won the TMA permit. Here are the entire results:

    I think he was looking for information on how the hunter did, not the organization that received the rights to auction the permit and the proceeds from said auction.

    This might be a dumb question, but how does alaskas governers permit work? Can the public and special intrests groups both put in for the permit? I am guessing the winner of the tag can auction the permit off!!
    In my state the governers tag is sold to the highest bider!! The sportmans tag is the one the general public can afford, for a $10 fee anyone can apply for the draw!!! Thanks Matt

    Thanks, I was looking to see if the winner of the Governor's Permit was successful on their hunt, and if so, how large the ram was.

    It is my understanding the Governor's Permit is for any sheep hunting area (including drawing areas) in the State and lasts for the entire season. It is an auctioned permit, but I'm not sure which group gets to auction it off or when.

    I could be wrong about the above description of the permit's allowances, but I thought that was how it used to be anyway.

    the 14c Gov's tag is why the Special Area opened up for Rainbow and Eagle River(areas that used to be closed) - the Gov Permit can hunt anywhere there resides an open season in 14c....thus the SINGLE tag for us low lifes, and the rich guy gets to hunt an area where they know only 1 guy will have hunted. It was a way to get money for 14c sheep research, and keep the complaints to a dull roar.

    the Rumor was the next world Record would come from this new area and thus this would fetch a nice sum of cash for Sheep Research as the rich guys attempting to buy the permit would have a shot at this Ram....at least that was the rumor.

    maybe the guy that won the permit the last time could comment on his experience, and maybe someone knows if the 14c Gov Tag Ram shot last year came out of the new area to hunt.

    I Seached the harvest stats for those that care

    in 2006 DS 123 shot a 38.5 x 14 Age11 on 8/23
    SS 123 shot a 42.25 x 14.5 Age12 on 8/12

    in 2007 DS 123 and SS123 show that there was a Kill, but the stats are missing

    I also guess I was wrong on the Area For Turnagain - its Indian that was Opened, not Rainbow (unless those are the same areas - I dont really know)

    Alaska Governor’s
    Dall Sheep Hunt Unit 14C
    Grand Slam Club/Ovis and the Conklin
    Foundation are excited to announce that
    they will again, for the third year in a
    row, have the honor of auctioning the
    2008 Alaska Governor's Dall Sheep
    Permit for Area 14C. The rams from 14C
    are legendary, and sheep from the
    Chugach Mts. are renowned for their
    large bases and heavy horns.
    What makes this special permit even
    more desirable is that for only the third
    time in 30 years, the Alaska Department
    of Fish & Game is allowing the high bidder
    to hunt three new areas that were
    opened for the 2006 season. Prior to
    that, these areas had not been hunted
    since 1975.
    This new 70-square-mile combined area (West
    Rainbow Creek, Southside Eagle River, and Ram
    Valley) will be available only to this special permit
    holder and a single state lottery permit holder.
    The 2006 auction permit holder, Dan Smith III, scored
    with an absolutely tremendous ram of near 180 points
    (green score) which you see pictured here, and the raffle
    permit holder scored with a great ram as well.
    These were the only two rams taken from the newly
    reopened areas in 2006. Soudy Golabchi was the
    2007 high bidder, and also got a super ram on his
    hunt. You see Soudy’s ram here as well.
    This is a great opportunity for a hunter to hunt for a
    magnificent trophy Dall ram. Matter of fact, this is one
    of the best opportunities available anywhere to get a
    ram that qualifies for B&C.

    For anyone interested, Hossein "Soudy" Golabchi's book 'Obsessed' is a pretty good read with some very nice photos. Written by one of the most experienced mountain hunters alive today. He has several world records all manner of mountain game, including the top two Marco Polo sheep in recent times.

    Here's a link to the book: https://www.safaripress.com/product....cat=316&page=3

    Now thats a nice sum of cash for one tag. 165K over two years

    Any know how much F/G got from thos two sales?

    This just goes to show you have much a permit is worth in those areas.

    Too bad the guy that drew it - couldn't sell it.

    Unhappy unreal

    Thanks for the info. UNBELIEVABLE: 90% of those funds go to the state to ADFG. $144,000 from the sale of sheep permits and they cannot do a single study or survey to benefit sheep hunting? Thats criminal. Sheep hunters may be small in numbers, but maybe we could be vocal if we knew who to contact. Would you happen to know who in the department is in charge of allocating such resources that we could lobby?

    Also I am sure we are all dying to see those pictures if you get a change to post them, maybe a moderator can give you some suggestions.

    If I had a link to the pictures in question, or was e-mailed a copy of the photos, I would be happy to post them.
