Wyoming governor touts success of wolf reintroduction
Missoulian
A recent survey showing Wyoming's wolf population is stable proves ending federal protections for the animals and placing them under state management was the right move, Gov. Matt Mead said. Mead released a report prepared by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department stating there were at least 306 wolves in at least 43 packs — including more than 23 breeding pairs — in Wyoming at the end of 2013.

How to hunt high-country turkeys
Outdoor Life
Andrew McKean, a blogger for Outdoor Life, writes: "When he ran into my setup, the New Mexican gobbler's chest seemed unnaturally huge. I assumed it was because he was so puffed up, ready to kick the grits out of the full-strut Hazel Creek tom decoy. But later, when I checked my GPS and confirmed the elevation — 10,400 feet above sea level—it occurred to me that maybe the tom's breast was so large because his lungs were freakishly big, an adaptation to living in that thin alpine air.

Saving the Bighorn sheep
Merced Sun-Star
Fifteen years ago, there were just 105 Sierra Nevada Bighorn sheep across their namesake mountain range. Today, they number more than 500. And just recently, four rams and 10 ewes, nine of which were pregnant, were helicoptered into Big Arroyo Canyon, high in the mountains about 10 miles east of Lodgepole in Sequoia National Park. That marks a dual milestone — it's the first time Bighorn sheep have settled in the Great Western Divide in more than 100 years while also proving that human intervention can bring the species back from the brink of extinction.

Lethal no-bighorn zone proposed
Billings Gazette
To prevent the possibility of bighorn sheep mingling with domestic sheep and contracting pneumonia in northeastern Montana, Fish Wildlife and Parks is proposing to create a lethal no-bighorn zone. Under the proposal, all lands outside bighorn sheep Hunting District 680 and deer/elk HDs 621, 622, 631 and 632, would be managed to exclude bighorn sheep. Wild sheep that wander outside of these areas could be killed by FWP or by an authorized landowner.

The Wildlife News
Recently, five conservation groups Cottonwood Environmental Law Center, Western Watersheds Project, WildEarth Guardians, Gallatin Wildlife Association and Yellowstone Buffalo Foundation sent the U.S. Department of Agriculture a notice of intent to sue for its failure to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the effects of sheep grazing on the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station on the Montana/Idaho border. In 2010 the agency (Sheep Station) promised (issued a public notice) that it would complete the environmental review, but instead it has unlawfully delayed completion of the review. This EIS and decision affects bighorn sheep and grizzly bears. The potential appellant conservation groups want sheep grazing stopped until the EIS analysis is complete.
