Father, son draw bighorn sheep tags and fill them on 1st day of hunt
Missoulian
At first there was a sense of elation, then realization and finally mild panic. Brett Kroger, a Jackson, Wyo., hunter, had just found out he had drawn a bighorn sheep permit — which prompted the elation. The panic that followed came when he realized that his 12-year-old son, Adam, had also drawn a permit in the first year he had applied — a rare occurrence. He had submitted Adam's name simply to help him begin building up preference points with no thought that he might actually draw a permit in his first year.

The number of American women spending time hunting has spiked 25 percent between 2006 and 2011. According to Census Bureau statistics cited by National Geographic, while men still make up the majority of the 13.7 million hunters in the United States, 11 percent are women. Many states, the magazine reports, are now hosting workshops, titled "Becoming An Outdoors-Woman," which instruct participants in archery, shotgun and rifle shooting.

NDOW to investigate bighorn sheep disease
Reno Gazette-Journal
The Nevada Department of Wildlife and partners are investigating bighorn sheep disease in three southern Nevada mountain ranges. Nevada Department of Wildlife biologists discovered a respiratory disease in a lamb from the River Mountains in early September. Based on cases in California where pneumonia wiped out more than 100 bighorn sheep, NDOW wants to make sure that doesn't occur in Nevada.

Hunting accidents can happen, but are often preventable
InForum
It's a safe assumption that few hunters ever leave home thinking, "I just might end up in a hunting accident today." That's no different than a farmer doing field work or a family just going for a Sunday drive. We seldom assume the worst, but we also buckle our seat belt and hook up safety chains. It's just common sense. It should be with hunting as well. "It can't happen to me," is not the best attitude to bring to the field.

Huntress bags bighorn ram in Wyoming
Billings Gazette
Amber Miles, daughter of Yodi and Jon Miles, kept the family hunting tradition alive and well this year by harvesting a bighorn ram. Miles, a 34-year-old Sheridan, Wyo., resident, managed to draw a bighorn sheep permit this year after 17 years of unsuccessful applications. Miles started planning her September hunt and recruited her dad, her boyfriend Bryan Smith and mountain specialist and family friend, Pat "Rooster" Bauman. They rendezvoused in Cody, Wyo., on Sept. 7 and hiked more than seven miles into camp in the Sunlight Basin the following day.

Neighboring states work to control bighorn sheep population
KSNV-TV
Nevada has too many desert bighorn sheep. Utah doesn't have enough. As Tom Hawley reports, the wildlife departments from both states are working together to get the numbers right. The Nevada department of wildlife uses the same type of aircraft as Sky 3 but theirs is outfitted with a net-gun instead of a camera. It's not hard to find targets, according to the Department of Wildlife's Mike Cox.

Pusch Ridge: New home to bighorns
Arizona Daily Star
Drive north of Tucson into Oro Valley, pull over and peer up at rugged Pusch Ridge towering above you to the east: What you're seeing is the past and future home of a free-roaming herd of bighorn sheep. Plans call for reintroducing bighorns on the ridge in the Catalina Mountains — where a herd of the agile, but in some ways fragile, animals died out in the late 1990s.
