Legislative panel moves to further politicize wildlife management policy and erode executive authority, creating a showdown with the governor
Gordon indicates Legislature should stand down as tug-of-war over wildlife management authority heats up. Draft bill would make Game and Fish reconsider existing designations and give counties sweeping authority.
Agency says neither the designation of two new migration corridors, nor the agency’s broader approach to such habitat have been upset by pushback from influential user groups.
Thirty-four years after its discovery, Game and Fish and others map, propose to protect Path of the Pronghorn plus a mule deer migration corridor.
A mule deer buck ponders an elk fence that creates a barrier along the Red-Desert-to-Hoback migration route in the Green River Basin.
