Second soldier bags a bighorn ram
The Statesman Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Sitting at home playing with his kids, Jamie Roscoe said the past couple of weeks seem like a dream. Roscoe was one of two soldiers from Oregon deployed on the same base in Iraq to be drawn to hunt bighorn sheep during the 2011 season. To accommodate the pair, members of the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission extended the bighorn seasons in their hunting units to give them a shot at the once-in-a-lifetime tag. It turned out they didn't need the extra time. More

The special archery season for deer opened recently. So Mike Leggitt did some rifle hunting on ranches with Managed Lands Deer Permits. He finds it hard to keep up anymore, especially since he is a member of the last generation of hunters who always looked toward the first or second Saturday in November for deer season to open.

When David Wallin was asked by the Sauk-Suiattle Tribe eight years ago to help figure out why the number of mountain goats in the Washington's Cascades was so low, he was puzzled.
