Discover Western Montana’s Bighorn Sheep

This aptly named mammal has a grayish-brown coat and a distinct white rump patch around its small brown tail. Males (rams) can weigh upwards of 300 pounds or more and have larger horns (up to 45 inches) than females (ewes). You can usually tell the age of a bighorn sheep by the number of segments in its horns (but do not approach the animals to count). Bighorn sheep live in large herds, and you'll find them in Montana hanging out on cliffs and mountain slopes as well is in foothills and valleys. For more, visit Montana Field Guide.
