ASK GAME & FISH

You may have seen our wildlife professionals out in the field this spring counting grouse statewide. Sage grouse gather every spring on breeding grounds called leks. Because most of the male sage-grouse in an area can be found at a lek, it gives biologists an opportunity to count males and log the count into state databases. The data can then be analyzed to determine population trends at local, state and range-wide scales.  Lek counts have been conducted in some parts of Wyoming since the late 1940's.
