2012-05-18T07:00:00Z During 1965-2000, 21 Montana State University graduate students completed field studies of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis). Their studies indicate that bighorn sheep can be a viable part of Montana's fauna for the foreseeable future if managers reject the myths that have developed about bighorns. Bighorns need specialized habitat that is not found everywhere, but th...[Read More]
