Helena bowhunter bags mountain goat, husband and magazine cover
The Billings Gazette
When Kelsie Erickson Burford bagged her billy with a bow last fall on her first goat hunt, she felt both humbled and honored. Little did she realize the experience would get even better. She also bagged her Johnny — as in Johnny Burford, her longtime boyfriend who proposed to her after they caped out and deboned the meat. As an added bonus, the overall experience ended up with her as the first ever camouflage cover girl on Eastmans' Bowhunting Journal.

Trophy bull elk found dead, poaching suspected
WSF
New Mexico Department of Game and Fish conservation officer KC Gehrt recovered a dead, world-class, bull elk outside of Reserve, N.M., Sept. 4. Poaching is suspected. Hunters discovered the rotting, but completely intact, elk carcass in a canyon, a mile and a half east of Little Round Mountain. Hunters in the area last saw the massive elk alive Sept. 1. "It's stealing," hunter Jeff Lewis said. "The state lost a huge amount. That's a once in a lifetime bull." Lewis and his hunting partner Don Roach had been tracking and shooting video of the enormous elk for three years.

FWP seeks comments on bighorn sheep plan
The Missoulian
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is asking for public comments on an environmental assessment involving a plan to reintroduce bighorn sheep to a part of the Madison mountain range this winter. The agency wants to transplant up to 50 bighorn sheep into the Indian or Wolf creek areas with the goal of establishing a viable population that can sustain hunting. The sheep would preferably come from another Madison range herd in the Quake Lake area.

Suddenly and surprisingly, a sheep hunter is forged
The Billings Gazette
Andrew McKean, a writer for The Billings Gazette, writes: "I've read about sheep hunts for most of my wakeful years and imagined the people who participated in them as belonging to a more refined life form, sort of like a freshman looks at a senior. Part of that perspective is deliberate. Sheep are scarce, and as with any limited resource, there's competition for access and opportunity. But I always suspected sheep hunters cultivated a sense of exclusivity."

Trail hikers don't hurt bighorn sheep
The Dessert Sun
AB 880 as amended did not specify which three months the trail was to be closed; as a result an environmental impact report was required to set this period. The EIR should be the responsibility of the Department of Fish and Wildlife. It owns and manages the property affected by AB 880 and, pursuant to its mission statement, should possess the data to submit the EIR. However, the department deferred and asked the Coachella Valley Association of Governments to undertake the process. CVAG properly declined.

Bighorn sheep from key Boulder City herd had viral pneumonia
Las Vegas Review-Journal
An ailing bighorn sheep caught and killed by wildlife officials in a Boulder City park recently has tested positive for viral pneumonia, but it does not appear to be a particularly lethal strain. Still, officials are dismayed by the presence of the virus, which could cause lambs to get sick and die for years to come in one of the state's most robust and important herds. "You don't have to have dead sheep littering the landscape to have your worst fears confirmed," said state wildlife veterinarian Peregrine Wolff.
