Need a Wyoming contact to help me prepare for retirement

I notice the state does not want to help out of state people locate there! I will want to live near areas where I can do serious rockchuck shooting at extreme distances. I need to buy a small lot away from civilization but close enough to be safe from theft when I was away from home.
Any help will be appreciated. I hope to quickly find a serious long range shooting nut for a companion.

Re: Need a Wyoming contact to help me prepare for retirement

Not from WY but........

I gather rock chucks by the hundreds are few and far between. PDs, on the other hand, are extra numerous.

I'd consider looking around Ft. Bridger, in the southeast corner. Kind of a central location for WY, CO, UT and ID.

Easy drive to anywhere in the west, (by western standards [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img])

I would suppose the crime rate in WY is pretty low. Lowest number of illegals in the US. Everyone owns a gun and usually has it handy. And they don't hesitate to get'er out. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

BTW, winters are Loooonnnng and summers are hot and short. Mean wind velocity is about Mach II but the direction is pretty constant [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Lowest number of illegals?

Was that before or during the recent energy boom?

Also, I know that with this energy boom the crime rates have increased greatly. The living expenses in areas has risen dramatically and jobs at Walmarts and McDonalds are paying in the $20/hr range. I even heard that the Walmart in Gillette suspended their drug testing policy so that they could actually hire enough people (rejects from mines, oil and gas) to even open up.

If you can find an area of the state where this isn't an issue, the state is pretty neat and definetly gun friendly.

Re: Need a Wyoming contact to help me prepare for retirement

i went to Jackson hole this past winter and fell in love. i think that it would be hard to find a place with more animals. we set eating lunch and saw tons of elk two moose one coyote and some big horn rams all in one meal. i wish i could find a way to make a living i would be gone in a hart beat. what do people do up there for a good living.
