Saving mountain goats with science, guts and good guesses
The Seattle Times
To empathize with the mountain goats of the Cascade Range, imagine the apocalypse has come and your extended family members are the only survivors on besieged Capitol Hill, Washington. Now it's time to have children. Unless you want to marry a cousin, you must reach another band of survivalists on Queen Anne, Washington. To do so, however, you have to cross a South Lake Union neighborhood that is swarming with zombies and vampires. To seek your mate, you must leave safety behind and risk predators, dangerous objects and disorientation. That's the genetic plight of Cascade mountain goat herds splintered and isolated by freeways, roads, logging and hamlets. They risk eventual inbreeding and what scientists call a "vortex of extinction."

Moose make a surprising move into Utah's Range Creek
The Salt Lake Tribune
Visitors to Range Creek Canyon in the Book Cliffs in Utah typically head to the remote area to experience its treasure trove of archaeological sites — but they may also be spotting some surprising wildlife. Moose have shown up in the hot, arid and usually dusty canyon more commonly populated with desert bighorn sheep, mule deer, elk, pronghorn and black bear. Biologists and researchers say Utah's moose have found ways to survive in atypical environments.

Finally, 4 AR-style rifles chambered for big game hunting
Field & Stream
About 150 years ago, a new 15-round Henry repeater brought shock and awe to Civil War battlefields. Today, we refer to that gun's progeny as classic deer rifles. But before hunters would fully embrace the lever gun — first chambered for anemic rimfire rounds — makers had to up the knockdown power. And so it is with today's ARs. The 5.56 (.223) is fun. But now, more manufacturers are offering AR-style rifles chambered in bona fide big-game rounds.

Bowhunting for elk: Focus on the cows
Outdoor Life
Savvy bowhunters know that in order to score early, they need to decipher what they are witnessing when glassing elk from afar. Like other ungulates, bull elk form bachelor groups and summer together in areas that provide ample feed as they bulk up for the rut and the winter ahead. And like their whitetail cousins, elk will often feed and lounge in full view of large meadows and open slopes. But getting within bow range of a bachelor herd is almost unheard of. However, if you can find a herd of late-summer cows and calves, there's a good chance a bull is camped nearby.

Arizona: Bighorn ram rejoins Santa Catalinas herd
Arizona Public Media
A recent recording shows the one and only ram in the herd of bighorn sheep reintroduced to the Santa Catalinas Mountains in Arizona rejoin the group. The ram spent much of the past few months roaming on his own, away from the ewes. Arizona Game and Fish, which has managed the bighorn sheep reintroduction, said his return bodes well for the pack. A good mating season and successful lambing season would bolster the herd.
