Summit County's bighorn sheep population under close watch
Summit Daily
Colorado is home to the largest population of bighorn sheep in North America. About 50 of the unmistakable animals have been documented in the Peru Creek area. Biologists started noticing the bighorn sheep in Summit County in the early 2000s, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife biologist Kirk Oldham. These Rocky Mountain bighorns are part of a larger more-established population found on Mount Evans, he said.

Deadly diseases could strike bighorn sheep
USGS
Declining bighorn sheep populations may be vulnerable to some of the fatal diseases, including chronic wasting disease, that are found in their western U.S. habitats, according to a new U.S. Geological Survey study. USGS National Wildlife Health Center research showed that bighorn sheep are likely susceptible to the deadly neurological diseases scrapie and CWD, which are occurring in or near natural bighorn sheep environments. These fatal diseases are caused by mysterious proteins called prions, and are known to infect domestic sheep and nondomestic deer, elk and moose. The USGS study is published in the journal BMC Veterinary Research, and is available online.

NDOW looking into bighorn sheep health problems
KRNV-TV
The Nevada Department of Wildlife is worried about the health of desert bighorn sheep living in the River Mountains between the city of Henderson and Lake Mead because some biologists are concerned the bighorn sheep might have pneumonia. Biologists say they have observed sheep exhibiting symptoms like coughing and nasal discharge. Members of the public have reported similar observations; however, these symptoms alone are not enough to make a reliable diagnosis. They also are indicative of other less threatening illnesses.

Hunter keeps up fight for crossbows during archery season
Missoulian
Last hunting season more than 41,700 resident and nonresident hunters purchased bowhunting permits in Montana. Dave Helmers wasn't one of them, although he wants to hunt during the archery season. The 59-year-old Antelope resident is unable to draw back a standard or compound bow because of injuries that have left his legs, arms and hands weak. In the last legislative session, Helmers lobbied for the ability to use a crossbow during the archery season. The bill died in committee, but Helmers is still unbowed. "We don't need someone else telling us what we can't do," he said.

Canada's caribou crisis: New restrictions frustrate hunters, baffle outfitters
Outdoor Life
For Dale Tribby of Miles City, Mont., a 2012 caribou hunt in northern Quebec with his son was a dream hunt. "Neither one of us had ever gone on a guided hunt, and it took us years to save up enough money," said Tribby. After shelling out $14,000, Tribby received a call from his outfitter just five days before he and his son were scheduled to depart. The Leaf River caribou herd hadn't migrated into the area, meaning no animals were passing through any of the campsites, the outfitter said. They would have to wait until next year.
