I just purchased a goat tag for Unit 38 in the Wheatland/Chugwater area. I was not yet a resident during the dates of the draw, so I was forced to get a left over tag. This was the only area available with tags, and I was given my "Walk-in Area" guide---as it is asterisked for being a "difficult to access" unit. I know its not ideal, but for the 45 dollars in fees I figured I would give the unit a try rather than waiting for next season.
Does anyone have any experience with Unit 38, or any tips on access to a particular region of the unit? At 17% public land, it contains only 3 small walk-in areas (not much larger than a square mile or so), but according to my maps there are large regions of BLM/state land in other portions of the unit, I just do not see any county roads that make them accessible.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I was given the numbers of 5 private land owners in the region who have been "helpful" to hunters in the past, but wanted to get your guys take before bothering anyone.
