Do you know that they've extended their range into northern Utah and central Arizona? I see them frequently in Prescott Valley, Arizona. There's even an annual hunt for them, permits only!

Thanks for the comments. No, I didn't know they made their way to northern UT. Looks like these guys are getting around.
