Fall Creek Wildlife Habitat Management Area (WHMA) is six miles southeast of Pinedale, WY and provides quality winter range for up to 700 elk and a large population of mule deer. Vegetative communities on the 600+ acres consist mostly of sagebrush grasslands. Besides providing habitat for elk and deer, Fall Creek is home to Pronghorn, Sage grouse, moose, rabbits, coyotes and many songbirds. Hunt for deer, Pronghorn or Sage grouse in the lower areas, or fish for trout in Fall creek just outside the WHMA. Take advantage of the wildlife viewing and photography opportunities. The area provides access to adjacent U.S. Forest Service lands where additional recreational opportunities exist. This WHMA lies within bear country, please visit our bear wise page for information on recreating in bear country -https://wgfd.wyo.gov/Wildlife-in-Wyoming/More-Wildlife/Large-Carnivore/Grizzly-Bear-Management/Bear-Wise-Wyoming.
