Mule Deer Herds West of Cody Focus of G & F February Meetings
Written by jordanmckamey on February 11, 2019
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will host two public meetings to discuss mule deer in the Clarks Fork and Upper Shoshone mule deer herds. The Clarks Fork and Upper Shoshone deer herds are located west of Cody and encompass Deer Hunt Areas 105, 106,109 and 110-115.
At each meeting, Tony Mong, Cody area Wildlife Biologist, will give a presentation on the current and historic population and harvest dynamics of both herds, and then outline potential management options that could benefit mule deer in these areas. Participants will then have an opportunity to discuss the outlined options and their impact, and provide feedback related to the short-term management of these mule deer herds.
One meeting will be held Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 5:30 p.m. in Heart Mountain Hall at the Park County Fairgrounds in Powell and a second meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 5:30 p.m. in Grizzly Hall at the Park County Library in Cody.
