Every year, the Department gives new hunter education graduates who had never purchased a license a chance to participate in a Barbary sheep hunt. Officers work closely with the owners of the Blackwater Ranch and Westall Ranch, who agree to allow youth hunters to come hunt on their property. Learn more about this special hunt in the following video.
