Rams have been observed in head to head combat for as long as 24 hours. A desert subspecies (Ovis Canadensis nelsoni) is found from Nevada and California to west Texas and south into Mexico. Bighorns have a complex 9-stage digestive process that allows them to maximize removal of nutrients from food of marginal quality. Scientific specimens collected and sent to a lab clearly indicated that significant numbers of lambs are lost as a result of the pneumonia/lungworm complex.
An international organization created to preserve and promote the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting. SASS endorses regional matches conducted by affiliated clubs, stages END of TRAIL.
As the game of Cowboy Action ShootingTM has evolved, our members have developed and adopted an attitude towards their participation we call "The Spirit of the Game." Competing in "The Spirit of the Game" means you fully participate in what the competition asks. You do not look for ways to create an advantage out of what is or is not stated as a rule or shooting procedure. Some folks would call "The Spirit of the Game" nothing more than good sportsmanship. Whatever you call it, if you don't have it, Cowboy Action ShootingTM is not your game.
