Former warden with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Raymond F. Arzy, passed away on Thursday, June 20 in Sheridan. But just a couple of weeks before he passed, Arzy and his family decided to donate his cherished bighorn sheep mount.

Arzy decided the the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Sheridan Regional Office was the best place to display it.
The Sheridan office did not have a Bighorn Sheep mount on display at the time. Arzy harvested the ram in 1971 near Dubois.

When he was a warden, Arzy worked all over Wyoming, in Cheyenne, Wheatland, Kemmerer, Laramie and Buffalo before retiring in 1982 and moving to Sheridan. In a media release from Game and Fish, Ray’s son Jim Arzy says his dad felt the bighorn sheep mount is “in the right place by being at the Sheridan Regional Office where everyone can see it.”

You can view the mount for yourself by visiting the regional office in Sheridan at 700 Valley View Drive.
