In collaboration with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, the Pinedale Ranger District decided to implement a no-human presence closure from Nov. 1 through Nov. 30 and from April 1 through April 30, in a crucial area along the Sublette Mule Deer Migration Route which was designated by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.

Notably, the plan does not compel reform or call for closing feedgrounds, but it does open the door for wholesale changes to the system of feeding elk that’s been in place for a century.

Pulling into third place on her bike was Ginny Robbins, from Victor, Idaho.
