How much legal road access is there to and across the public land west of Kaycee, WY?

I like deer hunting the Big Horns of WY but have learned that many years the deer may be down from the 9,000 foot areas by the time the October 15 rifle season starts. So I'm looking for a backup plan in Region Y.

I have looked at BLM maps and Google Earth and have a fair idea of what's there but can't really tell how many of the roads are legal for access.

Either legal to cross private land in the area on the way to public land or legal to gain deeper access once on public land.

I'm waiting for WY G&F to call me back, called them yesterday. The biologist was out doing surveys in the south area of Y. I'm going down that way this year as long as report is good. I'll let ya know what he says about your question and surveys.

Re: How much legal road access is there to and across the public land west of Kaycee,

Len, I hunted there this past season. There is a road that goes straight west from Kaycee, (hiway) then a rural access road that splits as it goes up into the mountains. The lower part that heads north is a county road, but goes into 2 or 3 large ranches that do guide. I talked to one of the hands there and we had a nice visit. But he was worn out with treaspassers. I had my garmin and the publics land maps and if I remember right the spots I was trying to get to were non-accessable as you needed private accessto get to them.

Now the road that went up and switchbacked pretty much west did have some access. In fact I am sure it does as there were many hunting camps down low in the foot hills. We didn't hunt there but we did go up and look at the scenery. I don't remember exact details but I am sure there is access there.

Jeff

Re: How much legal road access is there to and across the public land west of Kaycee,

Just saw this and hopes this helps a little. Hwy 191 goes northwest out of Kaycee and all the way up to Mayoworth, which is right on the boundary of units 30 and 33. Mayoworth Road goes west out of there and then heads north. Where it heads north is the junction of Slip Road and it goes way west all the way over to Hazelton Road, which is the boundary of the Region Y units down there. Slip Road does hit some BLM all along it, but there is less and less as you go west. The area I would probably concentrate on is down to the south of there quite a ways. If you go out of Kaycee the same way you take Hwy 190 southwest over to Barnum. It goes through several chunks of state or BLM on the way on either side of the road. Brock Road goes north off the highway about 5 miles before Barnum and hits some BLM as does Barnum Road going out of Barnum. The area I would go to is a ways southwest of Barnum down in the area around and in the Taylor Big Game Winter Range. To get to it you go just west out of Barnum a little ways and take the Bar C Road south for about 4-5 miles. Just as it starts petering out you will hit BLM Road 6217 that goes southwest down into a lot of BLM and state land and it's all in unit 163. That area has so much accessible public land that it would take years to hunt it all.

Some years back, My buddy and I hunted a wildlife area in the mountains west of Kaycee. We drove a blacktop road out of town and then took a 4wd access road to the wildlife area. It was an exciting drive of 6 miles. We took a couple smaller bucks. A fish and game guy gave us directions but it was at least 10 or more years ago and I don't remember so well. It should be on map. There was a trout stream there also.

That is more than likely the area I mentioned how to get to in my post!
