More than 600 species of wildlife, including fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds inhabit the rangelands and forest of Montana and the Dakotas. Pronghorn antelope, Rocky Mountain elk, mule deer and white-tailed deer are the most numerous big game species.
We also manage habitat for some very rare species, including the threatened grizzly bear, Canada lynx, and gray wolf.
