Wildlife officials kill ailing bighorn sheep to test for deadly infection in Boulder City herd
Las Vegas Review-Journal
State wildlife officials caught and killed a sick bighorn sheep from a Boulder City park so they could run tests to determine if one of Nevada's most important herds has been infected with a deadly strain of pneumonia. About 10 sheep have turned up dead in the River Mountains between Henderson and Lake Mead so far this summer. Most of the carcasses were found at the northern end of the range.

Hunting prospects vary in Wyoming this fall
The Sacramento Bee
This fall could be a tale of two hunting seasons. Some animals in the northern half of the state look strong and healthy from a wet spring and green summer. At the same time, hunters may see animals in the southwestern portion suffering the effects of a drought that won't quit. "Our antelope fawn production is just a touch better than last year, and last year was horrible," said Green River game warden Duane Kerr. "Last year we had less than 30 fawns for every 100 does (in one herd) and this year is just a couple of points better than that. It takes at least 50 fawns for 100 does to keep the population from shrinking."

Mojave Desert: Trucked sheep may have caused bighorn deaths
The Press-Enterprise
A pneumonia epidemic that has killed more than 100 bighorn sheep in the Mojave National Preserve this summer and is decimating another herd may have come from sick animals illegally dumped off a truck en route to alfalfa fields in the Imperial Valley, federal land managers said Sept. 3. Scientists are investigating two areas plagued by disease. The first, at Old Dad Mountain, is 15 miles southeast of Baker, Calif.

CSC student hunts in Africa prior to cracking the books
Rapid City Journal
Thanks to modern technology that can keep students connected with their classes even when they aren't on campus, a Chadron State College coed was able to accompany her parents on a hunting trek to Africa during most of the first two weeks of the current school year. Tomilyn Trask of Wasta, S.D., was in Namibia, a triangle-shaped country in southwestern Africa, when classes began on Aug. 23. She didn't attend her first classes until the last week of August. The arrangement wasn't ideal, but Tomilyn said she and her parents, Tom and Sheila, weren't able make the connections in Africa until mid-August.

Auctioned license funds South Dakota bighorn sheep recovery

A South Dakota resident paid $102,000 for a bighorn sheep hunting tag. Rip Rippentrop of the Midwest Wild Sheep Foundation says the goal is to use the money to buy more sheep for the Black Hills, where the sheep population has declined.

Lessons from an early season trophy
Field & Stream
Labor Day weekend marked the kickoff of most Western whitetail archery seasons, but the majority of hunters won't even take the field until November. Out West, distractions come in the form of mule deer, elk, antelope, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goats and more. In Washington, whitetails take a back seat until November, when the rut starts in earnest. Until then, many whitetail hunters will be content to fish for a record run of Columbia River Chinook salmon or to pursue a range of fish and game species before taking the field for whitetails.

Biologists investigate sick Southern Nevada bighorn sheep
Reno Gazette Journal
Wildlife biologists want to determine why desert bighorn sheep in the River Mountains of Southern Nevada are falling ill and will have to euthanize some to find the answer. Biologists fear that some of the herd that lives in the rocky terrain between Henderson and Lake Mead may have contracted pneumonia, an often fatal disease in wild sheep.
