While the statewide outlook is generally optimistic the historical view is a little more bleak
Quick thoughts to consider:
- Mule deer populations in Wyoming have declined by about 40% in the past twenty years.
- The primary reason for the decline is a reduction in habitat and habitat quality.
- Migratory segments of a population are typically the most productive and development that disrupts migration can have herd level impacts
- We must leave it better than we found it; and that includes habitat preservation.
–Together we must protect the habitat that is vital to our wildlife.
