Dead bighorns blamed on livestock disease
Jackson Hole News & Guide
Bill Hoppe boasts an ancestry that reportedly dates back to the first white settlers in the Upper Yellowstone River Valley. Today, as a family patriarch, he makes no secret that he holds disdain for the federal government, and he's channeled his antagonism mostly toward his close neighbor to the south, Yellowstone National Park. Hoppe, who owns property in Jardine and Gardiner, Montana, has been a big game outfitter who's benefited handsomely over the years by offering clients guided hunts of public elk coming out of the national park every fall.

Utah's deer herds doing well
Standard Examiner
The number of mule deer in Utah is growing. If you're a deer hunter, that's great news: it might mean more chances to hunt deer in the state this fall. Biologists base their deer hunting permit recommendations on deer classifications they do each year. During the classifications, biologists survey deer on their winter ranges to determine how many bucks, does and fawns are in the herds. What the biologists found during their most recent survey should be encouraging news for hunters and wildlife watchers alike.

    Bighorns get their checkup
    Jackson Hole News & Guide
    Wyoming wildlife scientists are in the early stages of trying to determine if well-fed, healthy bighorn sheep are less prone to contracting deadly pneumonia than sheep in poorer nutritional condition. The research builds on disease monitoring in the Jackson sheep herd in recent years, and also of herds near Dubois and Cody. The work aims to tease apart why some herds seem to better withstand disease.
