. This project is 15 miles east of Lovell on the west slope of the Bighorn Mountains.
Crucial winter range, as defined by WGFD
, is critical to a population's ability to maintain adequate productivity to meet population objectives, and in 1993 crucial winter range accounted for only 10.1% of occupied moose habitat in Wyoming (Hnilicka and Zornes 1994).
Game and Fish is excited to work with the BLM and WYDOT to help wildlife populations migrate to suitable habitat, said WGFD
Associate Wildlife Biologist Leslie Schreiber.
Resource requirements within a population are best compared during the critical winter period when forage is often limiting (Peterson and Allen 1974, WGFD
