Pronghorn Antelope & White Tail Deer
Recreate in and around Wright. The agricultural lands and open plains are habitat to antelope and deer, both mule and white tail. Surveys show that some 40-50,000 pronghorn and 20-30,000 deer thrive in Campbell County. The sagebrush grasslands are home to a multitude of birds, reptiles and mammals. Keep you eyes open and see ground squirrels, coyotes, rattlesnakes, bull snakes, rabbits, and other small creatures. The area is prime for hunting, wildlife viewing and exploring the outdoors.
