Hart Mountain Mule Deer Survey Trip

November 20, 2014

Hart Mountain Mule Deer Survey Trip Difficulty Rating: 2 out of 5 November 20 (Thursday PM) to November 23 (Sunday PM) Most people think about pronghorn antelope when they head to Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge.

Come join us on Hart Mountain in late fall as we monitor mule deer numbers to help with management and conservation of this iconic western species.
