Six DT-1000 were installed at various location on the Kaibab Paiute reservation in Arizona. Sites generally consisted of sandy soil. To minimize disturbance to the surrounding environment, guzzlers were carried to the final site and holes were carefully dug by hand. Game cameras have been put into place to monitor wildlife activity. Photos Courtesy of Danny Bullets Jr and Kaibab Paiute Tribe AZ.
This remote guzzler installation was a joint effort between White River National Forest and Colorado Parks & Wildlife personnel. The project included the demolition of a non-functional, 20 year old guzzler in Dry Fork Kimball Creek. To prepare the site, they cut, sprayed, and removed the brush and trees all around the guzzler to improve sight distances for sheep and allow helicopter removal of the old guzzler.
Huge thank you's go to Kim Potter & Natasha Goedert (WRNF) for the planning, money and chemicals; to Rifle White River fire crew for their incredibly efficient brush and timber removal and willingness to change plans on the fly, and to Ivan, Levi, Layton, and Travis (CPW) for packing all the materials in and helping with demolition and brush removal. It was a fun, gnat-free day!
Thank you Stephanie Durno, Wildlife Biologist, Grand Junction CO for the coordination, pictures and commentary!
Los Alamos National Labs placed a 1000 gallon guzzler to support the deer and wildlife in the desert area of New Mexico. In the dry periods, the guzzler tanks is filled by a water truck to maintain a consistant source of water.
