    California bighorn sheep, originally found in the more arid regions of Oregon, including Steens Mountain, Hart Mountain and the Owyhee River Canyon, . In Oregon, the Steens and Hart Mountains appeared to be the last stronghold of the California bighorns. The last records of wild sheep in these areas was an account, by Goldman, of one or two rams seen on Hart Mountain in By the California .

    On the Murderer’s Creek, Aldrich Mountain and McClellan Mountain sheep hunts we use horses and mules to get you in and out of the sheep country. This is rough steep country and you must be in at least fair physical condition to enjoy this hunt. We use a drive to tent camp as a base and spike camp out with the horses and mules during the hunt. We have guided hunters to 8 of the top 10 B & C ranked Rocky Mountain bighorn rams for Idaho, several top ranked sheep in Washington, plus the Oregon state record Rocky Mountain goat at 54". We have also guided the state record Rocky Mountain ram in .

    Over species of birds and mammals are found on the refuge. Pronghorn, sage grouse, mule deer and California bighorn sheep are featured species. The Hart Mountain California bighorn sheep herd provides the genesis for the majority of sheep reintroductions in Oregon. The bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) is a species of sheep native to North America. The species is named for its large horns. A pair of horns might weigh up to 14 kg (30 lb); the sheep weigh up to kg ( lb). Recent genetic testing indicates three distinct subspecies of Ovis canadensis, one of which is endangered: O. c. originally crossed to North America over the Class: Mammalia.

A habitat Oregon book value (HPV) was calculated for each habitat on Hart Mountain, based on use by ewe groups. Bluebunch wheatgrass (Agropyron spicatum) and big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) were the two most widely distributed plant species in the ewe-lamb range; Idaho fescue (Festuca idahoensis) provided the greatest amount of herbaceous by: 2.

A small population of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep live in the Wallowa Mountains; the rest of the animals in the state are California bighorn sheep.

From the arid desert of the Mojave to the snowy heights of the Sierras, California is home to diverse populations of bighorn sheep. The state hosts two subspecies: desert bighorn (Ovis canadensis nelsoni) and Sierra Nevada bighorn (Ovis canadensis sierrae). This website explores the natural history, current population status, and conservation efforts surrounding California’s desert bighorn sheep.

California Bighorn Sheep no longer occur in many areas of the Okanagan because of degradation of habitat, changes in predation mortality and historical over-harvest by legal or illegal hunting.

Two bighorn sheep subspecies are native to Oregon: Rocky Mountain and California bighorn sheep. Expansion of American civilization without wildlife protection or management, and domestic livestock diseases led to their extirpation from Oregon by the mid 's.

Present. If you like isolation, you will like Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge. It is especially liked by pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, mule deer, and sage grouse, four major wildlife inhabitants of this sprawling refuge.

A ,acre piece of the high desert in southern Oregon, Hart Mountain NAR sits atop a ridge that rises an abrupt Bighorn Sheep. Bighorn sheep get their name from the large, curved horns on the males, or rams; with female sheep sporting shorter, less curved horns.

Legendary for their ability to climb high, steep, rocky mountain areas, various bighorn subspecies and a distinct population (i.e., Peninsular) occur in the western United States.

Features: California bighorn sheep are one of two subspecies of wild sheep in Oregon. They are usually smaller, with a less blocky build and smaller horns than Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. Bighorn sheep were extirpated from the state in the s. Current populations are the result of a reintroduction effort by ODFW and sportsman groups.

Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep live exclusively in the Sierra Nevada of California. Historically they inhabited an extensive region that spanned from Sonora Pass in the north to Olancha Peak in the south; they also were found as far west as the Mineral King region within Sequoia National Park.

Fish and Wildlife Service. Today, bighorn still range into Baja California, but their numbers have dwindled to less than three percent of the estimated million of the early s. Currently, California and Rocky Mountain Bighorn sheep are managed as separate ecotypes in British Columbia.

They have short brown fur, a white muzzle and rump patch. They have split hooves which aid in balance and rough hoof bottoms for natural grip.Mountain lions, desert bighorn sheep, mule deer, and a variety of other wildlife live on and pass through the Nevada National Security Site each day.

It is a highly restricted area that is free of hunting and has surprisingly pristine areas. This minute program highlights an extraordinary study on how mountain lions interact with their prey.
