The Wyoming Game and Fish Department are hosting a Platte Valley Mule Deer Initiative meeting today (Dec. 9th) at 6 p.m. The meeting will be hosted at the Platte Valley Community Center, 210 W. Elm St. in Saratoga, Wyoming.

Attendees of the meeting will hear several talking points about the Platte Valley Herd. Firstly, the meeting will discuss current mule deer collaring projects. Likewise,  habitat monitoring projects will be discussed.

The meeting will also look at proactive actions to preserve migration corridors and future projects. There will also be updates on the Mule Deer Herd management plan and ongoing chronic wasting disease surveillance efforts.

The original Platte Valley Mule Deer Initiative was set back in 2011. The main goal was to increase public involvement in the management direction of the Platte Valley mule deer herd. This plan was put into motion to help create a management plan that would focus specifically on the challenges that the herd faces.

Anyone with an interest in the Herd is encouraged to attend the meeting. The more people who attend, the more the Wyoming Game and Fish can edit the plan to be more complete.
