Elk Habitat (Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation)

Downloadable Data: 

In keeping with the mission of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the M.A.P.™ (Measure and Prioritize) Elk Habitat Project was a cooperative effort, sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to produce comprehensive information about occupied North American elk habitat. 

Elk winter and summer range, crucial winter and summer range, parturition, migration and other important habitat areas were mapped using expert opinion of wildlife biologists. The M.A.P. ™ Elk Habitat Project can provide resource managers from State and Federal Agencies, Tribal Nations, and other wildlife conservation and management interests with a current, efficient and simple GIS tool to assist with habitat management. Uses such as the development of conservation easements, land acquisition and exchange, conservation education and habitat management are a few examples of the long term and collective opportunities to address habitat conservation from the "big picture", mid-scale perspective. Cooperators in this project include State Wildlife Management Agencies, Federal Resource Management Agencies such as U.S.D.A., Forest Service and U.S.D.I., Bureau of Land Management, and Tribal Nations.

Fish Survey Sites From Stream Survey Database

Fish survey sites in streams from the Standard Stream Survey (SSS) database in the Idaho Fish and Wildlife Information System (IFWIS).  The points represent the beginning points of the surveyed transects.  There are XY coordinates from the field survey and for the snapped points.

 

Issues with Game Management Unit shapefile

I downloaded the Game Management Unit shapefile off your website, and unfortunately the file continues to lock up my ArcGIS and give me an error message (see attached).   I only need a shapefile of GMU 10 for a presentation at the Western States and Provinces Deer and Elk Workshop.  I work for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and manage Fish Creek and other areas adjacent to GMU 10.  Could you possibly send me a shapefile of GMU 10?  I use State Plane NAD 83.

Thanks for any help you can provide!
