Bighorn sheep to be released at Tahoe Reno Industrial Center
Nevada Appeal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners have voted to release Desert Bighorn Sheep, one of North America's most endangered mammals, into the 107,000 acre Tahoe Reno Industrial Center.

We will then bring the sheep to a designated area in the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center and release them." More

It's an annual rite for some, the trip of a lifetime for others. And although a trip to the Rockies is the prototypical example, there's a broad and diverse array of elk hunting opportunities available across North America. More

In a stunningly underhanded move, the northern grey wolf was delisted from endangered species status during the recent budget battle; using politics rather than science, it is the first time in history that any imperiled species has lost protection for the purpose of political gain. What this will amount to is open-season on a critically important, top-tier predator — just as years of private and government investment have finally started to grant a toe-hold back to shattered ecosystems in the country's western regions.

If the coast redwood is the signature plant of the North Coast, then Roosevelt elk may very well be the iconic animal. Residents of Del Norte County in California are no stranger to elk — we see them along roadways, in fields and even in our yards. But while we may grow accustomed to their ubiquity, long lines of vehicles and crowds of camera-clutching tourists at the sides of roads remind us just how captivating these creatures are. More
