Book Cliffs mule deer watch Nov. 17

November is a great month to see mule deer.

Mule deer breed from early November through early December. That's why Brent Stettler has chosen Nov. 17 as the day to hold a mule deer watch in southeastern Utah.

"During the rut, which will be in full swing, deer tend to be less concerned about vehicles and people," says Stettler, a regional conservation outreach manager with the Division of Wildlife Resources. "If you attend the event, you should get a close look at a good number of deer."

The free viewing event will happen Nov. 17 at the Nash Wash Wildlife Management Area in southeastern Utah. Because limited hunting happens in the area, you can see a good number of mature bucks on a regular basis.

"Depending on the day," Stettler says, "you can see anywhere from 50 to 100 deer in the fields."

If you'd like to attend, meet at 1:30 p.m. at Exit 204 (the exit to Cisco) on Interstate 70. For more information, call Stettler at (435) 613-3707. Pre-registration is encouraged.

Stettler also encourages you to bring a pair of binoculars, a camera, snacks, water and warm clothes. "And please be on time," he says. "We don't want anyone to get lost on their way to the wildlife management area."

The exit to Cisco-Exit 204-is on I-70 and about 30 miles west of the Colorado, Utah border.

If you're traveling from Salt Lake City, it will take about four hours to reach the Cisco exit. Travel south on Interstate 15 to the Price exit, which is just south of Springville. Then travel southeast on U.S. Highway 6 past Price and on to its junction with I-70. Then travel east on I-70 to Exit 204.

Drive time from Price to Cisco is about two hours.

If you're traveling from Moab, it will take about an hour to reach the Cisco exit.
