Game Management

Maximizing the trophy potential of your ranch’s big game is our specialty. If you want the biggest bucks and bulls that your property can produce, we can help you increase trophy hunt success and lease or landowner tag value.

Western Biological leads the industry in gathering data to better detail and understand the dynamics of big game populations, their habitat, and their predators. We meet the needs of wildlife managers, resource development companies, and livestock producers to analyze the habitat use and predator interactions of game species and livestock to facilitate wise management decisions. With the growing fragility to many sagebrush-steppe populations of wild ungulates, having a thorough understanding of the relationship between habitat, harvest, predators and prey can provide the best guidance to management decisions.

Our scientists analyze everything from nutrient availability and thermal cover to predator density to define the limiting factors and real potential of your game populations and trophy potential. We identify uplift opportunities and execute efficient, effective action plans to maximize your return on investment.

We conduct third-party population counts and work with the state wildlife agency to adaptively manage your landowner tags based on the most up-to-date and relevant data.
