BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota’s Game and Fish Department is making only three bighorn sheep hunting licenses available this year, due to a decline in rams attributed to an outbreak of deadly bacterial pneumonia that’s been impacting the western Badlands herd for four years. Bighorn hunting is popular in North Dakota, with thousands of people typically applying for a handful of once-in-a-lifetime licenses. By Blake Nicholson. UPCOMING: 350 words. AP photo planned.
