MISSOULA, Mont. - At its 29th Big Game Awards held this past week at the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World store in Springfield, Missouri, the Boone and Crockett Club put the future of conservation on center stage with its second Jack Steele Parker Generation Next banquet. The banquet honored young men and women 16 and under from across North America who, over the past three years, had taken a Boone and Crockett record-book animal.
 
"At our big game awards banquets we typically honor the animals, but this one is different," said Justin Spring, the Club’s director of Big Game Records.

Using funds provided by the Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) and Montana WSF, U.S. Forest Service personnel utilized a contracted heli-torch to ignite conifer-encroached slopes, to remove heavy shrub cover and dense seedling and sapling conifers, to improve habitat for bighorn sheep.

According to WSF Conservation Director Kevin Hurley, “bighorn sheep evolved in open, high-visibility habitats, with good sight distances, allowing detection of predators.” Hurley added, “reduction of shrub cover and thinning non-merchantable small diameter trees via burning...

Bozeman, Montana – May 13, 2016: Sheep hunters, by nature, are dreamers. Like most people, the majority of our time is taken up by daily jobs and providing for ourselves and family, but given a chance to let our minds wander, we seem to easily drift off into daydreams about sheep and sheep hunting. Those daydreams usually include a great deal of consternation on the attributes of the perfect sheep-hunting rifle.

Boyt Harness Company, along with Brown Precision and The Outdoor Connection is giving Wild Sheep Foundation members the opportunity to design their version of the ultimate sheep rifle and a corresponding chance to win the rifle once the survey results are tabulated and turned over to Mark Brown so that he can start the build process. The winner will be drawn during the 2017 WSF “Sheep Show™ in Reno, Nevada.
Members will be asked their thoughts on...
