Half Moon Wildlife Habitat Management Area

Half Moon and Fall Creek Wildlife Habitat Management Areas are located six miles southeast of Pinedale and provides quality winter range for up to 700 elk and a large population of mule deer.  Vegetative communities on the 4,428 acres consist mostly of sagebrush grasslands and conifer forests atop Half Moon Mountain.  Perhaps the most striking feature of the area is Half Moon Mountain, which starts at 7,400 feet elevation and rises to 8,200 feet in less than a mile.

Besides providing habitat for elk and deer, Half Moon is home to pronghorn antelope, sage grouse, moose, rabbits, coyotes and many songbirds.  Hunt for deer, antelope or sage grouse in the lower areas, or fish for brook and brown trout in Pole Creek.  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.

Half Moon is closed each year from November 16 through April 30.
