The Associated Press via Aurora Sentinel
Wyoming wildlife scientists are in the early stages of a study of bighorn sheep. The study is 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.

Wildlife biologist: Climate change threatens mountain goats
Public News Service
The American mountain goat has been called the greatest mountaineer the peaks have ever known, but now that high altitudes are warming — at a rate two to three times faster than the rest of the planet — the animals' future is less than certain. Bruce Smith, a wildlife biologist and author, spent three years studying the mountain goat and its habitat. He said the changing climate is also changing the rules of the game for animals that live on what he calls "islands in the sky."

    Silver State Tag offers the hunt of a lifetime
    Elko Daily Free Press (survey question required)
    Usually if you were offered the chance at hunting a premier big game species anywhere in Nevada, you would think that's a pretty good deal. With the Silver State Tag, however, that's just the beginning. The Silver State Tag already allows hunters the opportunity to hunt one of four big game species — mule deer, Rocky Mountain elk, Nelson bighorn sheep and pronghorn antelope — anywhere in the state, but this year, the winner could also walk away with thousands of dollars’ worth of hunting gear and services.

    Video: Man rescues wild sheep wrapped up in tree
    OutdoorHub
    As an ancestor of modern day domestic sheep, mouflon sheep have a reputation for being rugged, determined and indomitable animals. The rams of the species are especially notable for their wide, circular horns, which can prove to be a problem when navigating the dense forests of Poland. A jogger and his son in Grablin Forest came across this desperate-looking ram as it tried to free itself after getting locking his horns around a tree. The animal seems to have been there for some time, and had already stomped a circle into the dirt while trying to untangle itself.

    Climate change impacts moose
    goHUNT
    Moose are in jeopardy — and climate change is to blame. Consecutive warmer (and shorter) winters, less snowpack and hotter summers are playing a major role in the decline of this majestic icon of North America. Moose need cooler temperatures to thrive and are severely impacted by heat, which can lead to weight loss, pregnancy loss and disease susceptibility. Warmer winters are also leading to an increase in parasites that colder winters in prior decades helped control.

    The right way to swing a shotgun
    By Irwin Greenstein
    Ask someone about the best way to swing a shotgun, and you'll probably hear about the three popular methods: swing through, maintained lead and pull away. You certainly need to know about them and the best way to utilize each one on different clays presentations or in the field on birds. We'll touch on them for a moment, but when it comes to actual shooting there are basics that need to be understood beforehand or you'll never master any of those methods.
