Overall Activity Status: Overall, whitetails are still on a bed-to-feed pattern and can be seen feeding in hay, alfalfa, and other agricultural fields in and around riparian zones. Whitetail activity in the more mountainous, mid-elevation regions is still being found feeding in clearcuts, as well as mountain meadows. As temperatures cool across the western region, expect food sources to alter slightly where available. Mast crops, such as gamble or white oak, in the Northwest and in parts of northeast Wyoming and Colorado, as well as pine nuts, can be a preferred source where available. Bear in mind that mast crops can be hit or miss out West due to more significant weather issues and their two-to-three year production cycles. Reports are that in northeast Wyoming the mast is poor this year due to a prolonged cold and wet spring, and an early summer season.
