Photos of the 2019 Sheep Count at Vaseux Lake hosted by the Southern Okanagan Sportsmen’s Association.
Here are the results of the 70th Annual Sheep Count at Vaseaux Lake Foothill Ranges Today:
We had approximately 25 Volunteers/Hikers attend with an 8 a.m. start at the Vaseux Lake Campground. We’d like to thank our visitors who came from the Lower Mainland to be apart of history and locals who braved the frigid temperatures in the name of conservation.
We’d like to thank this year’s volunteers who organized and cooked for the event: Lee Clarke, Joan Lindsay, Mathew Lewis, Darby Lewis, Ron and Mary Ostermeier and Lindon Springer.
This is the 70th Annual Sheep Count at Vaseaux Lake – the longest consecutive wildlife and sheep inventory count in Western Canada.

97 California Big Horn Sheep
57 Ewes * some of the Ewe counts included young yearling sheep
