Subject:           New Wildlife Management Publication: Pronghorn Management Guide 2006                                                                                                                                                                              
 
Under separate cover you will soon receive a supply of the Pronghorn Management Guide 2006, for distribution to the Field and other offices, as appropriate. The Guide provides biological and management principles and practices designed to sustain pronghorn antelope populations from Canada to Mexico, and is the latest iteration of guidelines that were first published in 1978, as Guidelines for the Management of Pronghorn Antelope. 
 
A product of the biennial Pronghorn Workshop, the guidelines are periodically revised to include the results of new research, present new techniques, remove redundancies, and address problems or issues not previously considered. Management recommendations cover a spectrum of both population and habitat subjects, several of which are directly relevant to BLM management responsibilities; Habitat Management, Fire Management, Competition and Conflicts, Fences, and Industrial Developments. The guidelines are not intended to be a cookbook for management practices or to be used indiscriminately. They should be tailored to meet local management needs.
 
If you have questions or need further information, please contact Cal McCluskey, Senior Wildlife Biologist, at (208)373-4042 or email.
