Abstract: Three herds of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis canadensis Shaw) in southeastern British Columbia were evaluated for health status during 1983 and 1984. Each herd was of similar size but varied in disease occurrence and herd dynamics, both historically and over the period of study. Samples taken from six sheep in each herd were examined for nutritional condition, microbiological, virological and serological status, general and pulmonary parasite loads, blood chemistry and trace mineral levels, as well as a gross and histological lesions. The Columbia Lake herd at high animal density wintering on a poor quality, low elevation range was demonstrated to have high levels of lungworm infection, low total serum protein, fecal nitrogen and liver selenium levels. Higher total serum protein, fecal nitrogen, liver selenium levels and lower lungworm levels were present in bighorns from the lower density Ewin Ridge herd wintering at high elevation. Adrenal glands were larger, lungworm levels were lowest, and
