Nevada Biologists Look To Hunters For Help

Nevada wildlife biologists recommend hunting down dozens of ewes in order to stabilize the big horn sheep populations. The Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners recently authorized the hunt that targets female bighorn sheep as a last resort to protect the current herds.

Populations of the bighorn are roughly around 12-thousand. The commission plans to give out 100 hunting tags - 85 for Desert bighorn in southern Nevada and 15 California ewe in northern Nevada.
