Cody - Thanks to the Mule Deer Foundation and Wyoming Outdoorsmen, wildlife managers with Game and Fish now have 30 new remote trail cameras to help collect important information about mule deer herds in the Cody area. 
 
The trail cameras will be used in conjunction with other techniques currently used to monitor mule deer populations in order to provide managers and the public with the best information to make management decisions.
 
Cody Wildlife Biologist Tony Mong said these cameras are a step towards the future of data collection for mule deer in the Cody area.  “We plan to use the cameras along migration routes delineated from the Eastern Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem mule deer project in the Clarks Fork and Upper Shoshone mule deer herds to collect age and sex class information, evaluate annual and seasonal body condition of deer, timing of migration and estimate winter mortality of fawns,” Mong said. 
 
“Specials thanks to the Mule Deer Foundation and Wyoming Outdoorsman for providing us with this important tool,” Mong said.
