What are the best areas to live in Wyoming for hunting and fishing? I'm from Wisconsin so I would prefer an area with good whitetail hunting. So far I've applied for positions in Gillette, Sheridan, and Powell. Any info would be appreciated, thanks.
If you are moving from Wisconsin: why not try the big leagues and start hunting Mule deer (I know that will hit the cord on somebody ). If you must have the white tail to hunt try the North East part of the state, Maybe New Castle or Lusk. Just remember Wyoming does not have many people or job. Best of luck
I'm not sure about the fishing in Wyoming, but I hunted the area north of Gillette for 7-8years when I lived in WI. The area we hunted had very few whitetails when I first went there in the mid 90's, but now the whitetails have virtually taken over the draws along the farm fields. We hunted private land and I know the very little public land that was available in that area got hit pretty hard. But there is a good population of whitetails, mule deer and antelope in that area if you can find a place to hunt.
I would agree with wlfdg that the Idaho panhandle has good whitetail hunting and alot of public land to hunt. Good luck on your search.
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
