Unit 21 Work Project
Black Butte Tank/Reimer Spring
November 4, 2005

On November 4, the AZ Game & Fish Department held an annual habitat enhancement work project to benefit pronghorn in GMU 21. Twenty-eight volunteers with the Arizona Antelope Foundation (AAF) and Arizona State University, and staff from the Prescott National Forest and the Department’s Adopt-A-Ranch Program helped modify a mile stretch of fence to wildlife standards. This work completes an approximate 4-mile stretch of fence that bisects north to south within some of the most suitable pronghorn habitat in the unit. The Department presented to the group the results of a recent fence inventory mapping effort, which will provide for prioritizing future work projects. The Department is currently finalizing a draft report on the GMU 21 Pronghorn Investigation Project. The draft report includes data from May 2002 through November 2004 on the distribution of pronghorn, fawn hiding cover evaluations, fence inventory and related analyses. The GMU 21 Pronghorn Workgroup is expected to reconvene in late January 2006 to proceed with the development of management actions and resolutions related to pronghorn and habitat management issues and concerns.
