Restoring bighorn sheep won't require wholesale slaughter of lions
The Arizona Daily Star
The measure of success for reintroducing desert bighorn sheep into Arizona's Santa Catalina Mountains is sheep and lions coexisting naturally in a healthy ecosystem, as they did for centuries. The path to that success involves a holistic restoration of the Catalinas and a new way of doing wildlife management. The Catalina Bighorn Advisory Committee has come together to thoroughly investigate and address all relevant issues, not just mountain lions.

Counting sheep: Tedious but rewarding
U-T San Diego
The 93-degree heat, mild by July Borrego Springs, Calif., standards thanks to overcast skies, felt much worse as humidity levels soared and sweat soaked the shirts of the sheep counters. Throughout northern Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Friday morning, 60 volunteers spread out to monitor 20 known water sources where bighorn sheep come to drink when the temperatures soar. The counters were to be there through Sunday, quietly sitting and staring through binoculars as part of the 43rd annual sheep counting weekend.

Bighorn sheep at Arnold Palmer's SilverRock course a scene hazard
Los Angeles Times
When Arnold Palmer designed his golf course at SilverRock Resort in LaQuinta, Calif., he made sure to provide plenty of hazards. But he probably didn't factor in one that showed up in the middle of the 16th fairway. Suddenly, less than a seven-iron away, a small herd of bighorn sheep appeared. They live high in the adjacent Santa Rosa Mountains and are most often seen standing majestically amid rocks 1,000 feet above. The mountains are their camouflage protection.

The Victoria Advocate
Roger Theisen owns an area tobacco business, but he would not mind selling it. Inside Tobacco Junction, toward the counter, are pictures of him outdoors with animals that he has hunted over the years. He loves hunting but enjoys simply being outdoors.

Hunters' dollars in Nevada go to keeping herds healthy
Reno-Gazette Journal
When hunter Tom Zimmerman is approached by people who are against killing animals, he lies to them. He's not hunting. "We're part of the wildlife exercise program," Zimmerman jokingly says. "We just go up and down the hills and chase them around." Zimmerman is one of many hunters who don't like to engage in debate with nonhunters. He says what he's doing is conservation. But in the eyes of activists such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, hunting is barbaric.

Arzy family donates bighorn sheep mount to Sheridan Game and Fish office
Sheridan Media
Former warden with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Raymond F. Arzy, passed away on June 20 in Sheridan, Wyo. But just a couple of weeks before he passed, Arzy and his family decided to donate his cherished bighorn sheep mount. Arzy decided that the Wyoming Game and Fish Department's Sheridan Regional Office was the best place to display it. The Sheridan office did not have a Bighorn Sheep mount on display at the time. Arzy harvested the ram in 1971 near Dubois.
