Stone's Sheep are one of the most prized Big Game animals in North America, yet most hunters going after them know very little about them, their habitat, and/or their management as a species. Critical information anybody should know!
Below are a few website links that offer up information and documented studies on Stone's Sheep that you may educational.
Sulphur Creek 8 Mile Sheep Project – This is a Stone's Sheep study currently taking place in the Sulphur Creek/8 Mile region close to Muncho Lake, BC. Lots of great information on this website, and if you pay attention some good sheep spots too!
Foraging Ecology & Nutrition Of Stone's Sheep – This study was completed in the early/mid 80's and the report itself is 127 pages long. Great Reading if you want to learn about their food sources, travel routes, winter ranges, and just good information on Stone's Sheep in general. Being raised in a family that actually outfitted and hunted sheep for over 30 years I even learned a few things.

It's the written account from one of the filmmakers on this trip who'd gotten his first taste of Sheep country… It wasn't the cake walk he expected 😉
