DescriptionThe T J Cattle Compnay Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit (CWMU) is south and southeast of East Canyon Reservoir. East Canyon Creek cuts the Unit on the west side (5000 to 5800 feet). Big Dutch Hollow and Sheep Creek enter from the east, and Little Dutch Hollow and Asp Creek come in from the west. State Road 62 comes in at the northwest corner. The most common elevation is 6400 feet but ranges from 5700 feet to 7600 feet with an elevation difference of 1900 feet. Fifty-six percent (56%) of the CWMU elevation ranges between 6600 feet and 7600 feet an elevation difference of 1000 feet.
Inter-Mountain Basins Montane Sagebrush Steppe (62) is the dominate land cover type on the CWMU. This Steppe type covers nearly a third of the unit. Rocky Mountain Gambel Oak-Mixed Montane Shrubland (41) is also a important land cover type. Less than the Montane Shrubland, but still an important land cover is Rocky Mountain Aspen Forest and Woodland (22).
