Agencies To Radio-Collar Bighorn Sheep In Hells Canyon

The Idaho, Oregon and Washington fish and wildlife agencies plan to capture 28 bighorn sheep in four Hells Canyon herds November 28 - 30 as part of the ongoing Hells Canyon Initiative to restore bighorn sheep populations.

The sheep will be captured by netgunning from a helicopter and brought to a processing site near the capture location. Biologists will take health samples, radio-collar the sheep and release them on site.

This effort is part of research to determine movements, survival and productivity, and factors limiting population growth of bighorn sheep in Hells Canyon.

The project is made possible through the cooperative efforts of Shikar-Safari Club International, Washington Wild Sheep Foundation, Oregon Foundation for North American Wild Sheep, Nevada Bighorns Unlimited, Oregon Hunters, the state wildlife agencies, U. S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management.
