Big Game Research Program

The Chihuahuan Desert Borderlands have a mixture of large mammals that is unparalleled, including desert mule deer, pronghorn, desert bighorn sheep, Carmen Mountain white-tailed deer, and elk.  Despite this variety of large game and their economic importance, there is relatively little information available regarding their management.  Research on these large mammals is a priority for our researchers.
