Moose Survey Conducted

Moose Research

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department and the Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit recently expanded a moose research project being conducted in the northern Wyoming Range between Jackson and Pinedale. Spokesman Mark Gocke says a total of 65 moose have been captured and fitted with Global Positioning System radio collars over the past three years to learn more about their habitat use, migration patterns, and survival. This past winter, he says 28 cow moose were newly-fitted with GPS collars in an area between Cottonwood Creek on the south and the upper Hoback River on the north. The information from the collared moose will provide data for the U.S. Forest Service as they prepare to update a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement regarding the possible lease of land for oil and gas exploration near where the PXP leases were bought out last year. A decision is expected on that lease by the end of summer 2013.
