With more than 9,000 miles of rivers, 2,000 natural lakes and streams, it’s as if Mother Nature had fishing in mind when she created Colorado.
Conservation is at the heart of Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s mission. And no other scientific principle is more responsible for creating Colorado’s enormous abundance of fish, wildlife and its world-class outdoor recreation.
Why are moose showing up in residential areas along the Front Range?
The mule deer gets its name from its overly large ears. In its scientific classification, Odocoileus hemionus, the species name is Latin for “half-mule.”
Although it’s normal for antlers to vary greatly in size, sometimes deer or elk will have unusual to extreme antler growth.
Colorado’s mule deer are an icon of the American West. They are cherished for wildlife watching and the economic benefit they provide to local communities through big-game hunting.
Every page takes you on a visual journey and brings you up close and personal with some of Colorado’s most amazing wildlife species.
