Re: Camping Help Unit 32 Wyoming

Anyone know what the weather will be like in 32 by Oct 7th? First trip to Wyoming with my 6 yr old son. Just looking to have fun and let him hike around a bit with me. He has already been introduced to hunting and likes it, and he is a trooper for sure. I have studied maps and GPS info, anyone have a good area for me to take my son? I am leaning towards the southern part of 32, and I have an HMA permission slip for 32.

That would be wrong. You can camp on any piece of BLM ground you want as long as you legally accessed it. The G&F and landowner lessee's have no authority over BLM lands that are legally accessible. You see a piece of BLM ground adjacent to the highway or a public road, you can camp there irregardless of whether its in an HMA or not...

I woke up to 23 Wensday morning and it hit 87 yesterday, By the 7th of October we could have a blizzard or it could be in the 90s??
Expect it to be cool to cold at night warming up during the day. Rain or snow will make road travel difficult at best and walking will be a real chore...It can dry out fast though so be a little patient
If its sunny and warm=look on the flats and around water, if it cloudy and cool look on the backside of the hills and small rivines.
You and your son should have a blast in area 32, lots of goats and wide open country. If all else fails look around the Bates creek resivior. Good luck and have fun huntin with your son!

I stand corrected, legally accessible can be an issue sometimes but not if you get to BLM from a public road!

Re: Camping Help Unit 32 Wyoming

Thanks for the advice, all. We ended up camping at the city park in Medicine Bow (restroom with running water + free) one night, and on BLM next night. Saw lots of goats. Had six spot and stalks, three successful stalks where we outsmarted them. Two of those stalks, daughter could not get situated quickly enough to take her shot, and one stalk was absolutely perfect, except we both missed. We were shooting downhill about -18 degrees at 250 yards. Had not practiced that shot. We followed what our rangefinder told us to do based on ballistics, but missed. We still were stoked because we had beat them at their game so badly, and correctly anticipated their movements. Daughter was frustrated because she missed, but now is determined to go back and do it better next time. Met an extremely nice game warden who was very encouraging, and will probably hunt in his unit next year, but unit 32 was great. Just sounded like WW III broke out at sunrise on Sunday with lots of gunfire and dirt flying on the roads. Our first stalk that we blew, we were stalking a group of about 25. We unexpectedly were caught exposed transitioning from one hill to another and the goats ran up the hill toward a ridge. On the ridgeline were three guys with guns. They harvested four goats in rapid succession.... We didn't even get a thanks for running them up the hill into their deadly sniper zone! We are hooked on goats now-what a rush! But now we want new rifles with bigger scopes and bipods, and did I mention a new F250 4x4? Our Nissan Pathfinder wheel base was not quite wide enough for the big boy dirt roads! But we would settle for oversize tires and a 3" lift!

Re: Camping Help Unit 32 Wyoming

We did pick a spot on "gooberment land" the second night. We arrived up there in the dark without a spotlight. Little hard looking for landmarks in pitch black without having ever been there before... now that I have been there and know lay of land a little better, I don't need any advice on where to camp.
