Alaska Game Board, aviation group clash on new sheep hunting rules
Fairbanks Daily News-Miner
A new regulation to limit aerial sheep spotting has riled both hunters who use planes to find sheep and Alaska's general aviation community. This spring, Alaska's Board of Game approved a regulation to ban hunters from using planes to scout for sheep from Aug. 10 to Sept. 20, starting during the 2015 hunting season. The new regulation may be struck down when the board votes on whether to rescind the regulation at a special meeting May 28.

South Dakota: Bighorns 'survive and thrive' in Northern Hills
Rapid City Journal
Late at night, as Ty Werdel beds down in his lonely apartment a couple blocks off Deadwood, South Dakota's historic Main Street, he hears a pinging in his ears. It's the same subtle sound he hears every day. When he is working, that constant pinging shows Werdel is closing in on some of the 26 transplanted bighorn sheep he is tracking for 700 days to earn his master's degree in wildlife science from South Dakota State University.

Utah wildlife managers boost hunting permit numbers
The Salt Lake Tribune
The more deer there are in Utah, the state's Deer Management Plan stipulates, the more that can be killed in hunts. Accordingly, the Utah Wildlife Board approved a recommendation from the state wildlife agency to increase the number of deer hunting permits by 1,995 for the 2015 season. The number of general season buck mule deer tags climbed to 86,550 for this fall, compared to 84,800 last year. Big game biologists with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources say deer are doing better than they have since 1990.
