Bighorn Sheep - Montana Field Guide. General Description.
Coat grayish- brown with yellowish- white underparts; creamy- white rump patch around small brown tail; horns of adult rams massive and curled, up to 4. Most sociable of Montana's big game species; herds segregate according to age and sex; ewes, lambs and yearling males band together; adult males band in herds spanning 2- or 3- year classes; subject to die- offs related to severe winter weather and pneumonia.

Click on the following maps and charts to see full sized version)Map Help and Descriptions. Migration. Uses seasonal ranges. Generally winter and summer ranges.
Habitat. Cliffs, mountain slopes, rolling foothills; sometimes cross intermountain valleys. Minimum snow depth most important in winter, available high quality green forage most important in spring and summer. Selected elevations vary accordingly.
Immediate or nearby cliffy- rocky areas important year- round. Semi- open to open vegetation types preferred. Often use south aspects.

Forest Service Region 1. Food Habits. Bunchgrasses and shrubs on winter range; wide variety of grasses, sedges and forbs on summer range. Diets of graminoids, forbs, browse with order of importance varying between seasons and ranges. Generally graminoids most important but on NW ranges browse may be the dominant food during winter.

Wolves are mainly hunted for sport, for their skins, to protect. Arizona endangered wolves still on the brink.
Ecology. Male agonistic interactions intense in prerut; established dominance. Very susceptible to disease, lungworm- pneumonia complex. Some previously extirpated herds now doing well (e. Compete with elk for winter forage; cattle less so.
Reproductive Characteristics. Breed in November; usually one young; rams battle for dominance by crashing horns together; ewes usually breed at 2 1/2 years of age, but may breed as yearlings.
Asynchronous estrus in ewes within rut. Intense mate competition among males. Lambing occurs late April to late June (sometimes early July). References. Additional References. Legend: View Online Publication. Do you know of a citation we're missing? Aderhold, Michael W.
