Ungulates are all around us, whether it’s the deer in our gardens, the pronghorn along the highway, or the bighorn sheep high in the mountains. They make our lives special–and we want to share stories of how we connect with them. Our released stories are below.
Are you ready to share your story?
We’re accepting stories from anyone and everyone who has a special connection with ungulates. We accept stories between 400-1000 words. When submitting, please indicate if you would like feedback–otherwise we’ll just do minor editing for grammar and clarity. Please submit to Rhiannon Jakopak at rjakopak [at] uwyo [dot] edu, with the subject line “Tracks and Tales submission.”
Sometimes getting started is the hardest part. If you need some inspiration, consider these questions:
What is your first or most recent memory of an ungulate?
When did you first see a fawn, lamb, or calf?
Where do you often see tracks, scat, or sign?
Where is the most unusual place you’ve ever seen an ungulate?
Have you ever watched an ungulate do something just… weird?
Has an ungulate ever inspired you? Outsmarted you? Outran you? Scared you?
What is your first memory of hearing the word “ungulate”?
