Wide-awake volunteers to count sheep
San Diego Union-Tribune
It takes a hardy breed of outdoorsman to spend nearly four days in triple-digit summer heat counting wild desert bighorn sheep in remote corners of California's Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Park Ranger Steve Bier is looking for just that kind of volunteer to participate in the 43rd annual Bighorn Sheep Count over the July 4 weekend.

The Rapid City Journal
John Kanta and the state Game, Fish and Parks Department, and South Dakota State University together have an interesting research project in the works on the Elk Mountain bighorn sheep herd. Parr is a graduate student in wildlife following the herd as it goes about its business, including producing young.

Outdoor Life reviews and ranks the 7 best new scopes of 2013
Outdoor Life
Conventional thinking in the optics industry used to be that most hunters will own only one or two spotting scopes in their lifetime. That's the reason you see spotters configured for the middle of the utility spectrum — 20X to 60X eyepieces, and objective lenses ranging from 60 to 80mm. Those sizes suit most hunting purposes and they double as sighters at the rifle range or for observing birds in the backyard.

Long-term fix in action for bighorns
The Argus Leader
In the days leading up to the first auction of a South Dakota bighorn sheep tag this spring, Curt Babler of the Midwest Chapter of the Wild Sheep Foundation began to get the feeling that the winning bid might exceed initial expectations. There were whispers, Babler says, of a bidding war that might push the top bid over $80,000 — a hefty increase from the $50,000 the folks at the Wild Sheep Foundation thought the rare chance to bag a South Dakota bighorn would bring at auction.

Demand for gun training grows among women
WTVF-TV
Interest in gun training classes has never been higher in some parts of middle Tennessee. In fact, it's so high for one Bedford County training group that it held its first gun safety class for women only. Defensive Consulting Group offered the class on Mother's Day weekend because its owners said sometimes women tell them they're not as comfortable taking the class around men, and they wanted to make sure their students learn gun safety skills in as comfortable environment as possible.
