Table Mountain Wildlife Habitat Management Area is 15 miles southeast of Torrington. In 1962, the Wyoming Game & Fish Commission entered into a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to manage 1,716 acres of Canada geese habitat. Wyoming Game and Fish Department has made extensive wetland improvements, resulting in one of the most important wetland areas in southeast Wyoming. The land consists mainly of grasslands, sagebrush and shrub communities with greasewood, skunkbush, sumac, and salt cedar. Dry Creek and Horse Creek meander through the north and western boundaries, respectively. Both of these creeks are of archaeological significance because many artifacts belonging to historic and prehistoric tribes of plains Indians are found here. Please be careful to help protect this archeological area. When this area was first acquired, there were only a few pairs of ducks using the habitat. Now, nine quality waterfowl ponds and small marshlands cover 590 acres. Many artificial goose-nesting structures were installed and almost 500 goslings were hatched in 1986. This area is an important staging area for thousands of ducks and geese each spring and during the fall migration. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department and the BLM have planted vegetation to increase nesting cover for pheasant and waterfowl species. There are plenty of hunting opportunities available at Table Mountain for pheasant, waterfowl, rabbits, and doves. Non-toxic shot is required when attempting to take any game species when hunting with a shotgun.Trapping for muskrat is also allowed. Be aware of trapping and hunting restrictions posted in the regulations that were initiated to protect nesting geese. Besides waterfowl, a great number of bird species use this area. American bitterns, great blue herons, marsh and Swainsons hawks, great horned owls, American white pelicans, western grebes, white-faced ibis, and bald eagles are some of the bird species you might see. Coyotes, foxes, and rabbits also live here.
