    there’s a pretty good article on Sierra bighorn in today’s Chronicle. Tom Stienstra, “Sierra bighorn on ledge of breakthrough” in the sports section. Sorry, I read the paper version, so no link! I’m sure you can find it by googling Stienstra or the Chronicle.

    Amazing turnaround!

    I lived in Bishop from 98-2001. Back then we thought surely the Sierra bighorn would go extinct.

    I see Desert Bighorn sheep often here in southern Nevada. I will apply for a hunting license for them next year.

    Chances are slim I’ll draw a tag.

    I see transported bighorn Sheep on the Deschutes River in north central Oregon.

    Once there were three groups of about 30 each on the trail ahead of me.  I was a bit concerned, but they just moved on.

    Eric, why would you want to kill an endangered species?

    Bighorn sheep have a right to exist just as you do.

    Stormin,

    Here in Nevada DESERT bighorn are far from even being listed as “endangered”. NDOW says they are huntable in selected areas and in selected numbers so why not hunt them? The meat is “marinaidable” and can be made nicely edible.

    If I can’t eat it I won’t shoot it. I’m a meat eater, not a vegetarian, as you might guess.

    Nevada currently has over 10,000 bighorns (mostly desert bighorns but some Rocky Mtn. also).  That’s more than any other state, and the numbers have risen fairly dramatically in the past 30 years.

    Do the desert Bighorns taste as good as the Alaskan sheep?  I am not a hunter but that was one tasty meal – especially after days of mostly candy and bars.
