DUBOIS, Wyo. — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is seeking Game and Fish Commission approval to identify the Upper Wind River Mule Deer Migration Corridor.

Game and Fish will hold public meetings to seek public input and discuss the proposed identification of the migration corridor maps and draft threat evaluation

Based on the current and anticipated threats and in consideration of the existing protections, the department recommends identifying this migration corridor. A designation of the corridor is not necessary. Identifying the migration corridor will provide land managers with the best data to voluntarily implement conservation measures and secure additional funding to maintain the functionality of the corridor.

“The meetings are an opportunity for the public and stakeholders to be directly involved in discussions about migrations in Wyoming,” said Doug Brimeyer, Game and Fish deputy chief of wildlife. “Local information and knowledge is key to understanding mule deer movement and is essential in the review process of the draft corridor map and threat evaluation.”
