Mule deer management meetings scheduled


A press release from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) announced that “a series of collaborative meetings to discuss mule deer management in the Platte Valley” will be held between July 18 and July 21.

The first meeting will be held 6 p.m. July 18 at WGFD Headquarters in Cheyenne. Next up is a 6 p.m. July 19 meeting in Laramie at the University of Wyoming Biodiversity Institute’s Berry Center, then there will be a 6 p.m. July 20 meeting at the Jeffery Center in Rawlins. Finally, there will be a 6 p.m. July 21 meeting at the Saratoga Town Hall.

At the four meetings, officials will gather public input on “management direction for the next five years,” the press release says. Topics to be discussed will include public access for hunting, predator management, habitat management, population management, disturbance and outreach efforts. Time will also be reserved to discuss what has been accomplished during the last five years of the Platte Valley Mule Deer Initiative, the release says.

Anyone interested in mule deer management in the Platte Valley is encouraged to make their way to one of the four meetings.
