You can draw two conclusions from the above. One, the odds for drawing sheep tags in Idaho are good. Two, there are reasons the odds are good. In central Idaho, sheep numbers are low; the country is heavily timbered, making sheep hard to spot; the season runs from September 1 to October 13, well before the rut; and the terrain is very intimidating. If you're asking, "Why bother?" then don't go. This is not an adventure for the uncommitted. As for me, I'm counting the days until I draw another tag.
