I have another population page ill see if I can upload but the numbers were posted on the sheep banquet thread.

I hunt sheep to see over the next mountain not to measure the next trophy!

Still a lot of numbers that would be nice to see in these reports but it is a start.

Go to this site for a link to the Jorgensen (F&W) presentation shown at the 2012 AFGA general meeting. Click on "Alberta Bighorn Sheep".

http://bowhunters.ca/     Keep the salt nearby.  ;)



Hopefully we can get the presentation from Jim Allen (F&W) to the WSFA.


Take note....  F&W has yet to provide any numbers as to the PRESENT (2011) Legal ram percentages by SMA, nor the percent of horn size increase/decrease by SMA.

Without this knowledge, we simply are not given any relevant data to discuss what the Present status is for sheep.

F&W's continued delivery of a summarized collage of data-sets without giving any relevant new data needs to stop. Alberta Hunters deserve more respect than this.

Darcy & Dale do you recall what was said about why the annuli count was not included in the studies ? It seemed Basal Circumference and horn length was only what was recorded..

They have all annuli counts since registrations started as each ram is aged at that time but they didn't have annual growth measurements between the annuli. This would help determin if rams are growing at stable rates over each year as compared to rams the same age the previous years.

Thanks for the post, always a good idea on keeping up with options being looked at by our government.
