In the hills south of Rock Springs, it's blizzarding. But Wyoming Game and Fish biologist Patrick Burke says it's actually great weather for tracking mule deer.
“You know, with no winds like this, and fresh snow,” he says, “that's really good for helping locate animals.”
Burke and other scientists have braved this weather today in hopes of capturing deer with helicopters to put satellite radio collars on them. They've already collared 18, but they want to do 50.
University of Wyoming Professor Kevin Monteith is one of the group.
