Bighorn sheep hunt worth the wait for Colorado's Lonny Vanatta
Steamboat Today
Lonny Vanatta booked the hunt a year before, flew to Mexico, drove 10 hours and spent five days in the rugged mountains and four hours crawling across the broken terrain, and finally he was there. A small group of desert bighorn sheep stood just 60 yards away. That's not close, he explained, but it's not too far, especially for a seasoned hunter like Vanatta. He stood and pulled his bow taut. He took aim, let the arrow fly and watched it plow into the ram he'd chosen. It was the second largest in the pack but also the closest. The arrow buried deep into the beast. Then, the animal ran away.

Guns.com
A fatal blow may have been delivered to Sen. Dianne Feinstein's, D-Calif., federal ban on assault weapons after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said that it will not be included as part of a comprehensive gun control package that the Senate will consider in April. Faced with the tough news, Feinstein all but admitted defeat, "I very much regret it" she told reporters, adding, "I tried my best, but my best, I guess, wasn't good enough."

Bighorn sheep's age focus of case
The Vancouver Sun
A hunter peering through a high-powered scope at a bighorn sheep in the mountainous area outside Spences Bridge believed the ram was eight years old. Kenneth Eng shot and killed the prized big-game species on Oct. 20 — the last day of the season — and took it to an Okanagan taxidermist. But provincial authorities, acting on a tip from locals, thought the animal was only seven years old — and therefore, under provincial law, safe from hunters' bullets. A conservation officer seized the dead ram and a regional biologist determined it was only seven years old and not legal.
