Antelope Valley Ranch is a working cattle ranch and a haven for wildlife, located 14 miles south of Mackay, just over the Pioneer Mountains from the Wood River Valley. This unfragmented area supports large carnivores and iconic species including pronghorn, sage-grouse, mule deer, elk, wolves, mountain lions, black bears, mountain goats, and wolverine. The conservation easement ensures that the land can remain a working cattle operation while also protecting habitat for wildlife. The Ranch is bisected by Antelope Creek, a tributary of the Big Lost River, and contains several smaller creeks and springs that are frequented by resident and migrating wildlife.
