Sheep of the Rockies
Vail Daily
The state animal for Colorado is the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis). This magnificent animal was first described by Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, a Spanish explorer during his travels in New Mexico from 1540 and 1542. Today, Colorado is home to the largest population of the species anywhere.

Mountain goats tiptoe into fragile sheep country in Wyoming
Missoulian
A pathogen that's linked to fatal pneumonia has been detected in the nonnative mountain goats that are expanding into the territory of the fragile Teton bighorn sheep herd. Wyoming Game and Fish Department biologists tranquilized four mountain goats — three nannies and a billy — from the Palisades herd in April. They took nasal and tonsil swabs and blood and fecal samples, in part to determine if the herd carries the bacteria strain Mannheimia haemolytica. They detected the pathogen in one of the four goats, South Jackson Game and Fish wildlife biologist Gary Fralick said.

Bighorns to get 2nd chance in Catalinas
The Arizona Daily Star
Bighorn sheep — a species that was practically the symbol of the Catalina Mountains before the herd there died out in the 1990s — will soon roam the range again. State wildlife officials said 30 bighorns will be moved from a healthy herd near Yuma, Ariz., to the Pusch Ridge Wilderness in the Catalinas this fall. Additional transplants in the following two years will bring the total to more than 100 animals. The officials had acknowledged in February that a reintroduction was being considered, but they emphasized then that it was "not a foregone conclusion." Now it is.

How do you break in your barrels and should you bother?
American Hunter
Keith Wood, a contributor for American Hunter, writes: "Recently, I had my .280 Ackley rebarreled with a 26-inch stainless blank from Lilja. It was a great all-around rifle with the 24-inch Douglas barrel that it wore for 10+ years, but now I have a larger selection of big game rifles to choose from and I wanted something that filled a more specific niche. This rifle is to be used to send 140 gr. bullets as fast as I can push them while maintaining accuracy, for hunting deer in wide-open spaces. Essentially, I've always wondered what the rifle would do with a 26-inch barrel and it was time to find out. Practical? No. It's my money (no, I don't get free barrels)."

Bighorns are big story
Omaha.com
There's only one word to describe what the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has done in returning a long-lost species to the state: big; as in bighorn sheep, and some big bighorn sheep, at that. Fifteen months after relocating a bighorn sheep herd from Alberta, Canada, to Jim Voeller's Sowbelly Ranch northeast of Harrison, Neb., in February 2012, and about a year after their first lamb crop in the state, the sheep are healthy, doing fine and, well, big. "They're huge," Game and Parks wildlife manager Todd Nordeen recently told The World-Herald's David Hendee.
