Big Horn Sheep

Winter brings the animals to lower elevations and sunny, south
facing slopes near Georgetown where they are more easily seen than
in other seasons.

In addition, the breeding season, also known as the rut, begins
in November and continues into January.

The Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep is Colorado's state mammal.
