HMM, what could possibly go wrong??
      This has been in the works for at least 2 years that I know of possibly more, so there has been studies done and input from various big horn specialist and groups. Just because you aren’t in the know doesn’t mean that no thought or laws or programs have been put in place for this extensive exciting opportunity to grow the bighorn population in our state.

      You're right sweeney!! I didn't attend the meetings so I guess I'm not in the know. What I do know is this. In the 20+ years ND has had Bighorns, the population has grown to a whopping 300 animals WITH the full backing of fully trained and staffed State and Federal wildlife agencies as well as private organizations along with state and federal law enforcement agencies. So unless all of these agencies were given jurisdiction on the reservation, (which I doubt) NONE of these agencies will have anything to say or do with these Bighorns. Not to mention all the funding that goes with those public and private wildlife agencies that can be used to support a new population of big game that the tribe has no access to. I tend to live in reality and the reality is that ND does NOT lend itself to growing Bighorn Sheep. It has taken MOUNTAINS of support to get North Dakota's bighorn population to 300. They have even had to augment the ND population using adult sheep from elsewhere to keep it going over the years. So I hope in those 2 years they were talking, they came up with a great new way to grow Bighorns on the reservation without all of the aforementioned support. As far as the sheep themselves go, I wish them luck. I hope they can survive on their own. I'm out!!!

      What do you think that whole signing of agreement between the governor the game and fish in the tribe was all about in the original article! This is just like they're doing with elk on Standing Rock which they actually mentioned in the article where it's a shared resource between the tribe and the state. Reservations are not one big solid block of all res ground its a hodgpodg of both state controlled some privately-held some publicly held and tribal ground. The whole point of all of this so far at least the article wise is about the fact that this is a shared agreement between the state and the tribe.

      I don't have to out run the bear. I just have to out run you.

      The 6.5 Creedmoor won’t make you a better hunter.
