Montana bighorn sheep

Just got back from nine days in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. Did some fly fishing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, etc...

Saw a ton of western wildlife. I'll be sharing some over the next few days when I get time.

Figured I'd start with big horn sheep photos. No big rams this trip, but I found a herd of 50 two days in a row right off the road. Some were about 2' from the rental car at the guard rail.

Nice pics. I like the action shot in I believe picture 4. Look at that little goat getting up what looks to be a pretty straight face

Re: Montana big horn sheep

They are my favorite western big game animal. My kids were amazed how they went up the steep side of the mountain with ease. We watched them for 20 minutes without them even acknowledging we were there. They were spread out from the top right down to beside the car.

Last time I was out we rode up on three rams along a creek while riding horse to fish. They ended up walking right between our horses. Unfortunately, I only had my cell phone on me that day. I would have even taken my iPhone 6 for that encounter.
