The Wyoming Range Mule Deer herd is Wyoming's largest deer herd and one of the largest in North America. Much of the winter range and transitional habitat for these deer is degraded, decadent, or otherwise unsuitable to sustain or improve herd health. In a comprehensive shrub assessment performed by Teton Science School on important winter ranges near La Barge and Big Piney, many areas were identified as needing treatments to improve forage conditions. This project would entail treating important mule deer habitat by using a variety of methods over a large landscape over a 10 year period.
