  • Dall’s sheep are present in seven major mountain ranges in Alaska: Kenai, Chugach, Wrangell, Talkeetna, Alaska, Brooks and the White Mountains /Tanana Hills.
  • Dall’s sheep have poor survival rates – in the neighborhood of 25 percent during their first year of life, but their annual survival rate increases to 85-90 percent once they reach adulthood.
  • Record deep snow in southcentral Alaska during this winter resulted in extremely low pregnancy rates in adult ewes.
  • The long-term effect on future hunting will depend on the next several winters.

Founded in 2002, the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership is a non-profit organization working to guarantee all Americans quality places to hunt and fish.

T.R.’S VISION
In 1912 Theodore Roosevelt said, “There can be no greater issue than that of conservation in this country.” While in the political arena, he succeeded in making conservation a top tier national issue. T.R. had the foresight to address these issues still so significant to sportsmen today, understanding that if we want to ensure critical habitat, special hunting grounds and secret fishing holes will be around for future generations, we must plan carefully today.

THE TRCP MISSION
In order to guarantee all Americans quality places to hunt and fish, we strengthen laws, policies and practices affecting fish and wildlife conservation by leading partnerships that influence decision makers.

TRCP / BASS PRO SHOPS JOIN FORCES
In early 2012, the TRCP joined forces with Bass Pro Shops and Steven Rinella of the hit TV show “MeatEater” to produce a video series highlighting conservation issues key to our fish, wildlife and hunting and angling traditions. Each episode of “TRCP’s Conservation Field Notes” follows Rinella to far-flung destinations where he talks about critical conservation issues related to the hunts and regions featured on “MeatEater.”
