Montana: FWP transplants wild sheep in the Madison Range
Bozeman Daily Chronicle
Bystanders waited expectantly for an explosion of horns and hooves as the trailer gate swung open, revealing a new world to the animals within. And then ... nothing. Slowly, a nose poked out as its owner blinked out at foreign foothills near Wolf Creek in the Madison Valley. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks biologist Julie Cunningham banged on the trailer's side and 16 bighorn sheep groggily left its safety, jumping and sometimes stumbling toward higher ground.

Arizona Game and Fish: Fewer Catalina Mountain lions being killed by hunters since bighorn sheep reintroduction
Tucson Weekly
In 2013, Arizona Game and Fish began its on-going program to reintroduce bighorn sheep to the Santa Catalina Mountains. At the time, 31 of them were relocated to the area from Yuma. More than half of that herd were killed by mountain lions a few months later — causing the department to eliminate three of them for preying on the sheep. They've been largely criticized for that move, and for the reintroduction as a whole by groups, like Friends of Wild Animals.

Commentary: Protecting desert bighorn sheep migration corridors in California's Mojave Desert
San Gabriel Valley Tribune
Humans have been captivated by bighorn sheep in the desert region at least since Native Americans began etching their forms on remote desert canyon walls thousands of years ago. Our joint fascination with this iconic species began decades ago, with research ranging from the alpine of California's Sierra Nevada and White Mountains to the rocky slopes of a multitude of desert ranges in the southeastern corner of the state. Careers have been devoted to learning about the physical and ecological needs of these magnificent animals to ensure that future generations have the opportunity to see them in the wild.

Reed: Preserve iconic animals, before they're gone
Casper Star-Tribune (survey question required)
Here we go again, private property rights versus public land rights. Almost two centuries ago, Congress looked out West at its vast land holdings and decided that in order to build a nation those lands should become privately owned and developed and enacted a succession of laws to bring that about and they worked, mostly. Bison and other native animals were replaced by domestic ones or plowed ground.

Moose rescued from Alaska avalanche
goHUNT
Thanks to three local snowmobilers, another moose is alive and freely roaming the Alaskan wilderness. Recently, three residents of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough near Anchorage, Alaska, went riding, wary of avalanches often brought on by the warmer weather. As the three men came upon a hillside, they noticed both ski and moose tracks, noting that skiers do not often ski in the area.

How to take a good trophy photo
By John McAdams
Congratulations! After investing a great deal of time, energy and money, you finally bagged the trophy of a lifetime. The best way for you to preserve the memories of this hunt forever, while at the same time paying proper respect to the animal, is to take a good trophy photo. Most of us have limited space for taxidermy in the house, but photographs are cheap and take up almost no space. Unfortunately, taking a good trophy photo is a task that countless hunters mess up each year, wasting a precious opportunity to capture the moment.
