    If you purchase the ON-X hunt map for Wyoming, it will tell you the ownership of all the land in the area you want to hunt. It would point you in the right direction for the people you need to talk to.

    You should also be able to get this intel for free at the county courthouse. You can here anyway.

    Haha ( not making fun of you). A couple years my brother and I did the same thing. We bought my daughter and my 2 nephews private land tags. Someone did come through and let.us hunt on their private ranch. Easiest hunt ive ever been on. Good luck.

    Walk-In areas are plots of land that the owner has agreed to let anyone hunt on. In Idaho it’s called “Access Yes.” Game and Fish will put up white placards around the plots that say “Hunter Walk-In Area.” I use OnX - It has them marked and are easy to find. I hunted one this year in the early hunt.

    Also, offer up a trespass fee to the land owner. Likely is that if they aren't a pinko leftist, they will allow you to hunt on their land. my.02 cents

    I’ve hunted that area many times. The game wardens are some of the best I’ve ever met. Always helpful, call the Gillette office. You won’t be disappointed.

    I have loaded all my stuff and driven to Manitoba 3k miles with no where to hunt but a place to stay more than once, and had great goose hunts knocking on doors. The trick is be very respectful of them and what's theirs. This includes leaving everything the way you found it, like gates. If it is open, leave it that way, closed, close it when you go through. Always offer a trespass fee, like stated above. For the future, It is useally easier to get an "In" in the summer well before season. offering to do chores works well usually. No help now, but make friends!!!

    What’s a reasonable trespass fee?

    I am familiar with idaho’s access yes. Do those areas in Wyoming count as private land?

    I would think so because it is privately owned with just an access agreement. Might be a good idea to double check with Game and Fish. Also, good luck on your hunt. We had a blast this year - 3 bucks and 5 does between the 4 of us.

    I wish you luck! I always let a kid shoot a whitetail doe off one of my feeders.
    We have a Youth Weekend in Kentucky the kids hunt and we mentor
    It's fun and we are batting 1000!

    Get on the WGFD website and use the “hunt planner”. Select the species, then the unit. The interactive map should outline “HMA” areas. Private land that allows hunter access. Research the HMAs as you may need to fill out a form online before entry.
    Good luck! Post pics!
