Ranch Advisory Examines Big Game Habitat in Colorado’s Grand Valley

Posted on: May 09, 2014

Ranch Advisory is examining wildlife habitat for wintering deer in elk in Colorado's Grand Valley.  Photos from the work follow. 


The above photo shows a sagebrush park that has juniper trees moving into it.  Those trees have not yet reduced forage for big game, but it must be examined so that trees do not unfavorably reduce browse.


The above photo shows a sagebrush park in which juniper trees have heavily encroached upon the sagebrush community.  Big sagebrush plants in this photo appeared of low vigor, and the ratio between cover and forage for big game has skewed toward cover.  Vegetative treatments in this area may be needed to reset that ratio to produce more forage for wintering big game. 

This photo shows a steep hillside, and if you look closely, you can see 4 caves where the U.S. Department of Energy mined for oil shale decades ago.
