If it's a cull for health reasons why not do an emergency season in June and get the testing done this summer. Seems waiting till Sept is counter productive to the goal.

And resistance comes from culling dozens of juvenile rams from herds that can only afford to have 2-5 mature rams taken from them any given year.

I hope it's going to benefit the herd in the long term but I lack the faith in wdfw that some of you guys possess.

If they are so concerned about the Canyon herd and knocking the numbers back even further than they are, then why the hell did they take all the Mt. Hull tags away where there had actually just been a confirmed case of the disease? Wouldn't one think they might want to increase tags there to get the numbers down where there is actually a current issue rather than eliminating all the tags like they've just done?

The way the wdfw is going about this is not a terrible idea. They are giving sportsmen an increased opportunity to draw a sheep tag by offering these tags to cull the heards. Also with no surprise at all itís generating more revenue for the wdfw. Itís funny how when the wdfw donít offer enough tags people b**** and when they offer to many tags people still b****.

 Im waiting for the thread discussing no more sheep applying for those that draw a juvi ram tag.

 Some discussions are just inevitable. :chuckle:

How many in the MT. Hull herd have the disease?They are wanting to get the sick ones out so they can reintroduce healthy ones back in without getting sick from the sick ones that are there right now.Waiting until season will make no difference to the sick juvy or adult sheep that will be hunted,If they are alive they are carriers.With some hunters in every state the Dept. can't win for losing ever.Dammed if they do Dammed if they don't.  :cryriver: At this time MT. HULL HAS 1 THAT'S RIGHT 1 CONFIRMED PNEUMONIA SICK SHEEP.

Things don't make sense. We are supposedly killing off sheep because of disease but giving sheep to other states. So what gives. If disease is present why not use the supposedly healthy give aways to supplement the cull areas. If disease is present do other states really want our sheep? It would be nice to hear from the Rocky Mountain Sheep Foundation.
