Colorado Department of Wildlife moves bighorns into northern Sangres Mountains
Wet Mountain Tribune    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Thirteen Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep have a new home in the northern portion of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range in Colorado, following a successful transplant operation by the Colorado Division of Wildlife. The Northern Sangres have been devoid of bighorn sheep since the 1980's, but with the population in the Southern Sangres thriving, the Department of Wildlife decided to take advantage of an opportunity to reestablish Colorado's state animal to another part of its historic range.

Monster Bucks!
Petersen's Hunting    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Monster whitetail bucks. These are the creatures that roam the woods and have the innate ability to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, your heart race, and your hands tremble as you reach for your rifle or bow while you hope, wish, and pray that this beast of a buck hangs out just long enough for you to finish the job. Often times they vanish into the deep recesses of the woods, haunting you for life, as you think of what might have been. But sometimes, a hunter does come out on top whether it be skill, luck, or a mixture of both. More

"Mind-Boggling" Pictures: goats scale dam in Italy
National Geographic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Using moves that would make any rock climber jealous, Alpine ibex cling to a near-vertical rock face of a northern Italian dam in summer 2010. This and other pictures of the goats have been circulating online recently, particularly in emails claiming the animals are bighorn sheep on Wyoming's Buffalo Bill Dam, the rumor-quashing website Snopes reported in September. In truth, Adriano Migliorati snapped the pictures at the 160-foot-tall Cingino Dam, the Italian hiker told National Geographic News via email. The goats are attracted to the dam's salt-crusted stones, according to the U.K.-based Caters news agency. Grazing animals don't get enough of the mineral in their vegetarian diets. More



Nebraska professor studies struggling bighorn populations
The Chadron Record    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Despite much advancement in wildlife conservation during this generation, a Chadron State College, Neb., professor tells about a North America species that continues to face great adversity - the bighorn sheep. "They have transitioned from a species of relative abundance to one of the most rare ungulates in North America," said Dr. Teresa Zimmerman, the faculty member who leads Chadron's wildlife management program. "They are a species of concern because of what we have done to their habitat, our infiltration into montane systems, and also the effects of our livestock." More

Cougar management in the spotlight as population increases
OPB    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Cougars, or mountain lions as they're sometimes called can be found throughout Oregon, that is if you know where to look. Most of the time these solitary predators manage to remain out of sight as they stalk their prey, mostly deer. But sometimes, these big cats wander into more populated areas as residents in the Oregon cities of Eugene, Corvallis and La Pine have seen in the last few weeks. And when they do they often stir up a mix of fear and controversy. More

Pat Matthews is a detective. Like most detectives, he looks at each case carefully — searching for evidence, considering all the suspects and pondering the fate of each victim. But, unlike the infamous Dick Tracy and Sherlock Holmes, Matthews doesn't work the dim-lit backstreets of a large city. His "beat" includes the rugged Wallowa Mountains and the dense forests of northeast Oregon. Matthews is a wildlife biologist for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. More

Follow rules when hunting on state's school trust lands
The Great Falls Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
School trust lands offer some outstanding hunting opportunities, but the rules differ from most other public lands in the state. The 5.2 million acres of state school trust lands are managed by the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation to produce revenue for public institutions, including schools. Since 2005, these lands have contributed more than $300 million to K-12 education in Montana. More
