Cheyenne - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is holding five local meetings to discuss ungulate migration and proposed corridors. Meetings are planned throughout western Wyoming.

“The local meetings are an opportunity for the public be directly involved in discussions about the migrations in Wyoming,” said Doug Brimeyer, Game and Fish deputy chief of wildlife. “We invite anyone who is interested in migrations and wildlife to attend, ask questions and share their thoughts on migration and the proposed corridors.”

The meeting schedule is:

City Location Date Time
Green River Game and Fish Regional Office Feb. 20 7-9 p.m.
Kemmerer South Lincoln Training & Events Center Feb. 21 7-9 p.m.
Etna Etna Community Center Feb. 26 6-8 p.m.
Pinedale Pinedale Library, Lovatt Room Feb. 27 6-8 p.m.
Saratoga Platte Valley Community Center Feb. 27 6-8 p.m.

The meetings will review two new proposed corridors, Sublette Pronghorn and Wyoming Range Mule Deer, and provide an opportunity for attendees to discuss corridor risks and identify conservation opportunities in the Platte Valley and Baggs Mule Deer herds. The Sublette Mule Deer corridor was the first designated corridor in Wyoming, and the risk assessment is available online.

The migration corridors of ungulates like mule deer, pronghorn and elk in Wyoming are some of the longest in North America. Over the past several years, Game and Fish and other researchers have continued studying the migration of big game animals. In 2016, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission adopted a migration corridor strategy that details the process of migration corridor designations.

These local meetings follow the recent migration forum, hosted in Casper on Feb. 11. A recording of that forum is available online. Additional information on migrations and corridor designations are available on the Game and Fish website.
