Wyoming Game and Fish is requesting support from BHA for a fence pull day on Bud Love Wildlife Habitat Management Area outside of Buffalo on June 6, with a backup day June 20th. We are currently planning on working with the HF Bar Ranch, Wyoming Wilderness Association and possibly BLM/Forest/RMEF. The primary goal is to locate and remove an old fence line that runs intermittently north to south on the Bud Love. We are going to utilize volunteers to locate portions of the fence, remove it from posts, and cut it into sections to be rolled up either by hand or by a mechanical fence roller.
Secondly, we are working on building and repairing our boundary fence on top of the face bordering the forest. We may have an opportunity for volunteers to help pack and install fence material to these higher sites these days or throughout the summer.
More detail on the Bud Love Wilderness Area:
5500-7000ft elevation. 8000 acres. Bud Love is the winter home of around 500 elk, 200 deer, and a small herd of antelope. Steep canyon walls line Rock Creek and Sayles Creek. There are mountain mahogany forests on the ridges, pine forests at upper elevations, and grassy meadows on the banks of North Sayles Creek. Hunting for big game as well as game birds, rabbits, black bears, and mountain lions. Trout fishing in the creek and ponds.
