Wild Sheep Foundation: Conservation group moves headquarters to Bozeman
Chronicle Outdoors
Kevin Hurley’s new office on Pronghorn Trail in Four Corners has a lived-in feel. Maps detailing the distribution of wild sheep in the West sit on a giant filing cabinet by the window, handwritten notes and correspondence surround his computer. On the wall behind Hurley’s desk are mounts of Stone sheep, Dall sheep, desert bighorn sheep and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. Looking around, it’s hard to believe Hurley has been here just a few weeks.

Omaha World-Herald
The big, tough bighorn sheep transplanted to Nebraska from Canada three years ago haven't avoided the pneumonia scourge that plagues herds across the West. The wild Sowbelly Canyon herd — which started with 41 critters and peaked at 98 — suffered an approximate 40 percent die-off last year, according to Todd Nordeen of Alliance, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission's big game research and disease program manager.

Wyoming: Mild winters, wet summers created positive hunting outlook
Casper Star-Tribune
For the first time in a handful of years, biologists have good news about many Wyoming antelope populations. Back-to-back years with few fawn born followed a harsh 2010 and 2011 winter. Hunting license numbers shrank as wildlife managers struggled to keep pace with the dwindling herds.

South Dakota: Black Hills bighorn boom
Black Hills Pioneer
Black Hill Pioneer columnist Bob Speirs writes: When I saw that the Outdoor Campus wild-game cooking class was teaching students how to prepare meals from bighorn sheep, I had a few questions? The carcass hanging in the class photo looked fresh. Had we lost one of our latest imported animals to an untimely death? Was the sheep one of the valuable ewes or one of the more expendable rams? I had heard that one of the two rams had been lost over the summer to a traffic accident. Such trauma rarely results in a carcass that is suitable for human consumption.

So says a recent study on how black bears in Minnesota react to unmanned aerial vehicles, also called drones. In the study, the first ever to test wild animals' physiological reactions to UAVs, scientists successfully flew a platter-size quadcopter near wild bears 17 times.
