      Jeff Short, a wildlife biologist and survey coordinator with the Wyoming Game & Fish Department, heads the Southwest Wyoming Radio Collaring Project to study the seasonal habitats, movement and fawn survival of Mule Deer. Since the last Mule Deer study in the mid-80s, southwest Wyoming has suffered a decline in deer, much like other areas of the western United States.
