A symbol of the range returns home
The New York Times
The two-way radio crackled to life, "We're coming in with three ewes and a young ram." Two minutes later, a helicopter appeared on the horizon, four large nylon bags slung below its belly. It touched down in a rocky basin, gently so as not to jostle its delicate cargo. A dozen workers and volunteers rushed forward to release the bags, each one holding a blindfolded desert bighorn sheep.

Cabela's ColorPhase: Coolest new camo on the market
Outdoor Life
Of the many latest-and-greatest gadgets released every year for hunters and fishermen, few are revolutionary. Or even new. They're usually just tweaked versions of an old idea wrapped in fancy packaging and described with technical jargon that makes it sound like the equivalent of the Neanderthal man discovering fire and inventing the wheel. While Cabela's ColorPhase technology might not spur mankind ahead in the same manner as fire or the wheel, and at the risk of sounding hyperbolic, it might be one of the greatest evolutions in modern camouflage.

Everybody wants a kudu
Sports Afield
The greater kudu is perhaps the most recognizable of Africa's antelopes, certainly one of the most impressive, and for most first-time African hunters, near the top of the wish list. Today the "plains game safari" is the most common African hunt, and the majority of plains game safaris are conducted in Namibia and South Africa. Despite his reputation as the "gray ghost" the greater kudu is the most plentiful and most widespread large antelope in southern Africa, so most hunters will get a chance at a greater kudu during the course of their safari.

Mountain goats decline near Southeast mine but weather blamed
Anchorage Daily News
The mountain goat population at the Kensington Gold Mine north of Juneau, Ala., dropped 45 percent between 2006 and 2011, according to a study by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, but the suspected cause is severe winters and not mine operations. Similar lower numbers were detected in the mountain goat population along Lynn Canal, where the department monitored numbers as part of a possible road project.

Bighorn sheep, mountain lions can coexist
Arizona Daily Star
Desert bighorn sheep are an iconic wildlife species that occupied the Santa Catalina Mountains for eons — until the early 1990s. The effort to repatriate bighorns to the Pusch Ridge area of the Catalina Mountains is challenging, as the conditions that caused this depopulation are complex, both biologically and socially. If successful, this effort would mark the sixth mountain range in which the Arizona Game and Fish Department has re-established a naturally reproducing population of bighorn living in contact with populations of mountain lions.

Can paint guns and slingshots deliver us from mountain goats?
Crosscut
The trail up Mount Ellinor, a popular peak in the southeastern part of Washington's Olympic National Forest, gains 2,500 feet of elevation in just a mile and a half. The final push is a wheezy, you're-gonna-need-your-hands-for-this scramble up boulder fields and talus slopes buttressed by sharp ridges. It is a landscape better suited to mountain goats than humans.
