Sheep Shift Spawns Surplus

mtn sheep

Biologists at the National Elk Refuge last week reported that an unusually high number of bighorn sheep had been counted on Miller Butte.  According to the January 24th biological update, 98 sheep were counted on the butte.  However, Refuge Biologist Eric Cole notes that the large number does not necessarily mean the population is increasing, but may simply be the result of the sheep that normally use the Curtis Canyon and upper Flat Creek area shifting into the lower area.  Cole says the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has begun a study to determine more about the movement patterns and habitat use of the sheep.

  • Show me a line, I’ll show you a wind knot - August 26, 2014
    My fly line tippets never last me very long. Early in the season, I’ll put a new wind knot in a tippet on every cast. I’ve actually gotten two knots on a single cast before. I don’t even know how that’s possible, but I’ve done it. I’ve gotten wind knots in my leader, too, and […]
  • I’ll take a full-size truck, please - August 25, 2014
    I mentioned last week that I’ve had the opportunity for an extended test drive of a Nissan Titan, and I compared it to the smaller Nissan Frontier. The Frontier’s smaller size gives it a little better ability to get through tight spots and over rough roads, but I still like a full-size truck for hunting […]
