Enjoy-


“In the late 1800s, there was a healthy population of Bighorn Sheep in Texas. However, due to disease from domestic sheep, unregulated hunting, and habitat competition, Bighorn Sheep were extinct in Texas by 1960. With a common duty to be a steward of the land and the wildlife that inhabit it, the Texas Bighorn Society, Texas Parks and Wildlife, the Wild Sheep Foundation, and thousands of volunteers went to work to restore wild sheep populations. Due to their efforts, roughly 1500 Bighorn Sheep currently inhabit Texas, marking it as one of the most incredible conservation success stories in America. “

What was not mentioned in the video was the elimination of a sizeable elk herd in the same area where the big horns were transplanted, that was done by TPWD personnel.

Yelper was some studs taken that year on surrounding properties too that where pushed out of SD. I struck out but a fellow mod’s team killed a giant. I’m curious size wise what all they actually killed in the park.

Oklahoma raises 100k plus a year on thier elk draw hunts.

They are in BB State Park too. Coming back from Terlingua one evening (about 18 months ago) around 6 PM we saw a ewe going back up the mountain on the east side of the big hill on 117 about 2 curves down from the crest. Pretty cool critters.
