The Red Rim - Daley Wildlife Habitat Management Area is approximately ten miles southwest of Rawlins off Interstate Highway 80.  Red Rim - Daley WHMA provides crucial winter habitat for pronghorn antelope and a variety of other wildlife.  Up to 200 pronghorns summer here and as many as 2,400 will winter here.  Pronghorns feed on sagebrush, which remains free from snow cover on the windswept slopes of the rim.

Saltbush, sagebrush, and greasewood grasslands dominate the landscape.  There are flat to rolling meadows, hills, ravines, and impressive red rock outcroppings.  Separation Creek is the only water of any significance flowing through these lands.  Typically, the creek is active only during spring when runoff from snowmelt or when significant rains occur.

Besides antelope and mule deer, you will find ferruginous and red-tail hawks, kestrels, prairie falcons, and golden eagles here.  There are owls, coyotes, prairie dogs, and many varieties of sparrows and other neo-tropical songbirds.  You may even spy a badger.  However, one should observe them from a safe distance.

Fishing is non-existent in this area, but hunting for antelope, rabbits, mule deer, coyote, and sage grouse is good.  Take care not to disturb wildlife, especially during harsh winter months.

A 14-day camping limit is in effect in designated camping areas within the WHMA.

Red Rim - Daley is open all year, however, drifting snow closes most roads and trails in early winter.
