Winter Range

Antelope use the rolling, open sagebrush hills of the Mesa south of Pinedale during the winter because the snow rarely gets very deep, making travel easier, and they can find forage above the snow. The Green and New Fork Rivers transect the Mesa, providing water and a greater variety of plants to eat. Big game are also attracted to ranches in the area and feed on hay ranchers put out for their cattle and horses in the winter.
