Reseeding will help restore areas where primarily sage grouse and mule deer are established and suffering from habitat damage. Seeds were applied through aerial drops and drill seeding efforts.
“I cannot state strongly enough what a great opportunity this was. Given our farming life we struggle to find hunts that work for us. The Dream Tag provided so many options we were able to relax, take care of business and hunt exceptional areas for nearly a month.”
This funding was an important part of a large, multifaceted Master plan designed to restore an 800 acre burned area. It is the first entirely private land based restoration we have undertaken and we are excited to be able to move it forward with the help of this grant.

Getting the seed into the ground before full winter t greatly increased the likelihood of germination and the critical return of mule deer forage and thermal cover.
