Hello, I'm new to the forum. I am going to do some work around rangely, Colorado this next week for a couple days. In my free time I was hoping to see some mule deer and wildlife. Any suggestions on where to go and see deer? Thank you in advance

Hi Coyote:

You shouldn't have any problems seeing lots of wildlife all around Rangely, mule deer, pronghorn antelope and even some elk.

If you want specific information, I would recommend contacting someone directly at the Rangely Chamber http://www.rangely.com and I'm sure they would be happy to point you in the right direction.

Good luck!

PS

That corner of CO also has wild horses, they're easy to locate and photograph.

If you're a mountain biking or hiking enthusiast this area is great for those activities.

You also won't be far from Brown's Park, Dinosaur National Monument, and Harper's Corner, which are known to have bighorn sheep.

I don't have any specifics but you should be able to bump into muley any direction you take out of Rangely. You could stick to the White river which east-west by Rangely along hywy 64. There is also hywy 139 which follows Douglas creek.

There is a lot of open country out there.

Coyote- you should see lots of game in the Rangely area. There is a lot of country to see also. Along with deer elk coyotes etc. keep on the lookout for Mt. lion. You may only see track for they are nocturnal but they are there. Look over your shoulder every once in a while-especially if you feel the hair raising up on your neck. Be safe!

That is a good point, Cowboy. There are quite a few lions out that way.
