Welcome to the Mountain Ungulate Research Portal!  We are a team of researchers (from Montana State University in collaboration with various wildlife management agencies across Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho) seeking to better understand the ecology of bighorn sheep and mountain goats in the greater Yellowstone area and the state of Montana.

We invite you to explore our two ongoing research initiatives:
