You won’t find the special reindeer of the North Pole in Wyoming that possess magical aerial abilities to tow the mystical sleigh of Kris Kringle. But, you can see some wonderful members of the deer family including white-tailed deer, mule deer, elk and moose in the Cowboy State.

Wyoming’s deer have a more down-to-earth magic. Instead of brightly wrapped packages found in Santa’s sleigh towed by his nine reindeer (including Rudolph), our deer bring an appreciation for wild things, wild places, a great reason to be outside and live in Wyoming...and just maybe a portion of the yearly sustenance. As we all know, the reindeer pulling Santa Claus' sleigh visit Wyoming only during Christmas Eve and only stops at houses of good boys and girls. So you better not be naughty, but be nice!  Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
