Game and Fish publishes special Wyoming Wildlife on mule deer

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s flagship publication, Wyoming Wildlife magazine, has dedicated the latest issue to the struggles of the Cowboy States mule deer population. 

The September 2023 issue educates readers on the challenges mule deer face and the department’s immense efforts to improve their overall numbers. This special issue is available for free through the Wyoming Wildlife e-edition.

“As you’ll read in Wyoming Wildlife, mule deer face some significant challenges and Game and Fish is investing heavily in implementing new techniques and large-scale habitat work to address mule deer declines,” Game and Fish Director Brian Nesvik said. “We are dedicated to collaborating with the University of Wyoming to conduct cutting-edge research to learn more about mule deer and things that can be done to reverse the slow, downward trend in many of our states’ populations.” 

According to the department, the special issue offers an account of collared deer as they journey throughout the state. Throughout the issue, readers will see photos of the mule deer species and gain a close look at the work of Game and Fish wildlife managers, researchers and partners to improve mule deer habitat, connectivity and overall health. 

“Mule deer are an icon of the West, and Wyomingites have a great passion for the species,” Wyoming Wildlife Editor Tracie Binkerd said. “After a tough winter, people have been thinking about the state’s mule deer populations. So this is a great time to release a special issue of this kind.”

This magazine issue is available online at no cost or in print at the Game and Fish Store for $2.50.
