Big Horn Sheep Feeding Station

Description

Although Bighorn Sheep are not as numerous as the Rocky Mountain Elk fed at the main location for the Oak Creek Wildlife Area, they can be seen throughout the year from a small feeding station set at the base of a dramatic cliff on Mount Clemans. During the winter months, rams and ewes of all ages congregate at the Cleman Mountain feeding station. In the spring, the older rams separate into bachelor groups. Also in spring, the young rams (1-1/2 to 3 years of age) remain close, although separated, from the ewes and lambs. Once the lambs are born, these young rams become castoffs. The herd now will consist of the ewes, newborns, and the previous year's offspring. From Highway 12, drive north on Old Naches Highway less than a mile, and you’ll see a large parking area on your left (unpaved) where you can park and view the sheep in the feeding area or on the mountainside.
