To provide a foundation from which to gauge and mitigate issues relating to access and disturbance, I used global positioning system (GPS) radiotelemetry data acquired from 33 female Stone's sheep in the Besa and Prophet river drainages to develop resource selection functions (RSF) and to define areas important to Stone's sheep.
