FWP policy gambles with Greenhorn bighorn population

from Bozeman Daily Chronicle

Jim Bailey writes: "Thirteen years ago, Fish, Wildlife & Parks transplanted 69 bighorn to the Greenhorn Mountains. Now, FWP confirms up to 59 bighorn, but believes in an unknown number of unseen sheep. FWP proposes to harvest one ram. This scenario illustrates the veiled status and management of bighorn sheep in Montana. FWP considers 125 bighorn to be a minimally viable population. No population geneticist would agree. Yet, FWP has even lower management objectives for several herds. The purpose of the inadequate 125 standard escapes me." more
