Abstract: Let $ N = {{\mathbf{H}}^3}/\Gamma $ be a hyperbolic $ 3$-manifold which is homeomorphic to the interior of a compact $ 3$-manifold. We prove that $ N$ is geometrically tame. As a consequence, we prove that $ \Gamma $'s limit set $ {L_\Gamma }$ is either the entire sphere at infinity or has measure zero. We also prove that $ N$'s geodesic flow is ergodic if and only if $ {L_\Gamma }$ is the entire sphere at infinity.
