Wyoming Mule Deer Migration Covers 150 Miles, 3 Highways, 100 Fences and More [VIDEO]

This awesome video contains incredible footage of a newly documented Wyoming mule deer migration and captures the journey of thousands of mule deer migrating over 150 miles each year.

Using the latest GPS tracking and camera technology, researchers and photographers managed to capture this amazing footage of these deer as they travel between their winter and summer ranges in western Wyoming.

While migrating between the Red Desert and the mountains just south of Jackson, Wyoming each year, this herd of deer travels over 150 miles, crosses three major highways, over 100 fences, and countless bodies of water. The story and footage of their yearly journey is so incredible you’ll have to see it to believe it.

Seeing this video really opened my eyes to the brutal conditions these animals must endure each year. Featuring some extremely harsh, yet incredibly beautiful country, Wyoming has fantastic hunting for both mule and whitetail deer.

As this video demonstrates, these magnificent creatures must go to extraordinary lengths each year to survive.
