kids looking for wildlife through a spotting scope

If you enjoy getting outdoors and looking for wildlife, consider a visit to Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge!  From birding to big game, from viewing speedy pronghorn or slow-moving porcupines, wildlife observation is the most popular activity for refuge visitors.

From every state and all parts of the globe, 15,000-20,000 people visit each year, especially for the chance to see concentrations of pronghorn and birds.  The Refuge's extensive road system and expansive backcountry offer visitors the chance to discover America’s best wildlife spectacles.

To avoid disturbing Greater sage-grouse during their mating season, you must have a Refuge Special Use Permit and follow special rules when viewing or photographing sage-grouse from March 1 until June 1.
