Laramie - LARAMIE - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is holding a public meeting on the Sheep Mountain Mule Deer Initiative at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, at the Laramie Regional Game and Fish office, 1212 S. Adams St.
 
Meeting participants will hear a summary of data retrieved from GPS-collared mule deer during a two-year migration study. There will also be updates on current and proposed habitat projects, the U.S. Forest Service's LaVA analysis, chronic wasting disease, and updates from non-government conservation organization partners involved in Sheep Mountain Mule Deer Initiative efforts.  
 
The Sheep Mountain Mule Deer Herd consists of hunt areas; 61,74,75,76 and 77 in southeast Wyoming. In 2014, the Sheep Mountain Mule Deer Initiative was formed to identify and prioritize the current issues facing the herd, and to develop management strategies to address these issues. The Sheep Mountain Mule Deer Herd provides opportunities for mule deer hunters from the nearby cities of Laramie and Cheyenne.  Like many places in the western United States, the Sheep Mountain area has experienced a decline in mule deer numbers over the past 30 years.
