BLM Extends Comment Deadline for Deer Project
The public is getting more time to comment on a plan to improve habitat in the Sublette Mule Deer Herd Unit. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department are extending the deadline for public comments from Nov. 30 to Dec. 14 on their proposal for improving habitat in the unit. Plans call for removing invasive plant species and otherwise improving forage for deer in the area near Pinedale. Eric Decker is coordinator of the BLM's Pinedale Anticline Project Office. He says public interest in the proposal is high and says extending the comment period will give the agencies the best information on how to make their work successful.
