National Elk Refuge Provides Bighorn Habitat, Too

By on January 25, 2010 Categories: National Elk Refuge, Wildlife Safari


Big Horn Sheep - Spring Creek Ranch, Jackson, WY
Our wildlife safaris are offered year-round and I keep a log of sightings from every trip that we have ever done with an approximate count for each species.

On one of last week’s safaris we counted one of the highest number of bighorn sheep ever recorded on the National Elk Refuge: 61! As the snow keeps falling more and more animals are moving on to the Refuge including thousands of elk, bison, coyote, bald eagles and bighorns.
