During 1965-2000, 21 Montana State University graduate students completed field studies of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis). Their studies indicate that bighorn sheep can be a viable part of Montana’s fauna for the foreseeable future. Bighorns will never be as abundant as deer and elk because they have a narrower range of suitable habitat, but they do respond well to management.
