| A full grown bighorn, around 8 years of age, could reach 300
pounds. A few of the largest males weigh more. Females are smaller but they
still weigh around 160 pounds. They are stocky and they are among the largest
wild sheep in the world. Bighorns spend most of their time walking for hours,
eating on grasses, sedges and other low growing plants. Coyote, cougars,
grizzly bears and wolves hunt for bighorns, but they can almost always escape
by climbing up a rocky cliff.
You also may find them near the Fall River Road and in the high country of Trail Ridge Road.
