JACKSON, Wyo. — Fall migration in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem has brought some impressive antler-toting ungulates to the valley floor, and Buckrail photographer Nick Sulzer has captured these hooved specimens strutting their stuff against local scenery.
Wildlife will be crossing roads and making their way to lower-elevation habitats for the winter season. Some of these high-elevation habitats where they begin their migration are national parks, the Yellowstone plateau and surrounding high-elevation national forest lands.
While the migration window is snow and weather-dependent, animals will start to move as snow begins to accumulate in the high country.
With migration at hand, it is important to be vigilant in looking out for wildlife along roadways. Now through the winter, avoid traveling at night and obey speed limits, as plenty of the winter range for these animals exists alongside the road.
