We see plenty of wildlife on Tabby Mountain WMA (Wildlife Management Area). The area, about 100 square miles, is gated and closed to vehicular traffic from December 1 to May 1.
We often see large herds of deer and elk on Tabby.
Last week we saw a moose nibbling on gambel oak leaf buds. He was on a hillside only about 100 feet away.
He saw us but didn't seem to care.
Ouray Wildlife Refuge is another wide open place to ride.
The sandhill cranes are back along the Green River. Between the squawking cranes and the Canada geese, silence is in short supply.
