NDOW’s Bighorn Sheep Programs at Hemenway Park

The Nevada Department of Wildlife will again be hosting presentations at Hemenway Park this summer to showcase and explore bighorn sheep, specifically our own River Mountain herd (which now consists of around 200 adult sheep).

Below are some fun facts about the bighorn and below is the flyer that has this summer’s schedule on it (as far out as they have planned so far)!

Fun Facts

  • Males are called rams, weigh in between 140-200 pounds and it’s estimated that when battling, they may meet head-on at a combined speed of 15-20 mph.
  • Females are called ewes, have smaller horns, weigh 90-150 pounds and after a 6-month gestation period, have one lamb a year.
  • Bighorn sheep have a life span of 8-12 years and the size of their large and curved horns, which are reached around age 6, establish rank in the herd.
