Bighorns climb road to recovery
Globe Gazette
With symmetrically curved horns and sure footed agility, the Rocky Mountain bighorn is one of North America's best known and most spectacular forms of wildlife. The closest populations of wild bighorns exist among the higher elevations of South Dakota's Black Hills National Forest and in the nearby Badlands National Park. Attempting to observe bighorn sheep in either setting represents one of my favorite outdoor pastimes.

Long-lived toothless mountain goat shocks wildlife experts
Standard Examiner
Mountain goats have a reputation for tenacity, but a Utah professor has discovered a particularly stalwart specimen that somehow survived without most of its teeth. The male mountain goat first made history as a member of the first herd introduced to Willard Peak in 1994. In the winter of 2008, Willard residents found the mountain goat, mistaking him for a female, wandering a local orchard and presumably looking for food. Utah Division of Wildlife Resources officials tranquilized the animal, but after noting how old, malnourished and toothless the goat was, they decided to euthanize him.

Hunting Colorado's white ghost of the mountains
goHUNT
Hunter John Bielak writes: After years of submitting preference points, I was hopeful that 2014 would finally be the year that I would have the opportunity to hunt mountain goats. Knowing that my chances were extremely slim, I opted to apply for a nanny rifle tag to help increase my odds. To my surprise (and excitement) I saw that all my preference points were suddenly gone when I checked my results later that spring. The world seemed to stop as I realized that I had drawn the coveted mountain goat tag that I had desperately wanted.

Hunting age bill set to be introduced in 2016
New York Outdoor News
It seems like yesterday, but it was actually seven years ago when New York state lowered its minimum hunting age for big game — deer and bear — from 16 to 14. Hailed at the time as a major achievement for the Empire State when legislation was signed into law by then-Gov. David Paterson, the fact remains that the 14-year-old minimum age remains the most stringent in the U.S. That could change under legislation that will be considered next year in Albany, New York.

6 guns every hunter needs to own
By John McAdams
At their most basic level, guns are tools for hunters. Like tools in a tool box, some guns are better at various hunting tasks than others. Depending on the animals you plan on pursuing and the location where you hunt, it is often necessary to own several different guns to ethically and legally hunt the animals you are after. Fortunately, this doesn't have to be a needlessly complicated undertaking. By owning the guns on this list, you can hunt virtually any animal anywhere in the world.
