Game and Fish conduct a New Mexico Bighorn capture and release to track and maintain healthy animals for the enjoyment of all.
If you want to see some State employees hard at work in the benefit of conservation have a look as these New Mexico Department of Game and Fish employees conducting a Bighorn sheep catch and release.
What a great video to see how these animals are humanely captured and carefully handled to conduct research and relocate. It is through careful management work like this that hunters can enter the draw each year to hunt Bighorn sheep in the wilds of New Mexico; and at very reasonable draw fee for residents.
This type of conservation effort is directly funded by the revenue collected from hunting and fishing permits and licences thanks to the resources of sportswomen and men. It is your hard earned money at work for the benefit of the animals.
