Curious if anybody has seen/witnessed the bighorns rutting/males fighting along the river in the fall, specifically mid October to early November from Mexican hat down to clay hills.

Any previous experiences would be great.

Thanks

Brian- we saw over 75 sheep in July on that stretch, the most by triple at least I've ever seen down there. A friend of mine just got back from the upper stretch last weekend and said they had a fighting pair at Midway camp when they pulled up- they waited for a while in the boats, but eventually got out. The sheep never even acknowledged them- kept right on fighting and headbutting (with equipment ready apparently) all night long. A group of about 30 females and young ones stayed across the river.

watched a great fight across the river from the Great Crinoid on an October trip a few years ago. 3 rams fighting over several ewes.
