CWMU description

The westside of the Boobe Hole Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit (CWMU) is located at 7200 feet in the Plateau Valley. Towards the east the Unit rises to over 10,000 feet on Boobe Hole Mountain. Continuing southwest the Unit slopes down from Boobe Hole Mountain to Otter Creek, 9400 feet in the north and 8400 feet in the south. Finally, the elevation climbs up towards Hightop Plateau to about 9400 feet. The most common elevation is 7100 feet but ranges from 7000 feet to 10000 feet with an elevation difference of 3000 feet. Forty-nine percent (49%) of the CWMU elevation ranges between 8000 feet and 9700 feet an elevation difference of 1700 feet.

On the Boobe Hole Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit (CWMU) the land cover is distributed in three (3) bands. On the the eastside of the Unit, and taking the most area, is a band of Rocky Mountain Aspen Forest and Woodland (22). Moving towards the west, there is a narrow band of Rocky Mountain Gambel Oak-Mixed Montane Shrubland (41). Next, there is a wider band of Colorado Plateau Pinyon-Juniper (36). Not quite a band, but the extreme west is covered with Inter-Mountain Basins Big Sagebrush Shrubland (48). Back in the Aspen Forest and Woodland are large patches of Inter-Mountain Basins Montane Sagebrush Steppe (62). At the interface between Aspen Forest and Woodland and Gambel Oak-Mixed Montane Shrubland, are some large areas of Inter-Mountain West Aspen-Mixed Conifer Forest and Woodland Complex (38).
