bulletThe herd management area ranges from rolling hills to rugged canyons and badlands.  The country is semi-arid with hot summers and cold winters.  Precipitation averages 8 inches annually.   Sudden cloudbursts erode the area's badlands, turning the streams a muddy reddish-brown.  Part of the herd management area lies in the Bobcat Draw Wilderness Study area, with its colorful and intricately-carved formations known as hoodoos, goblines, mushrooms, and castles.
