Wyoming state lands

This may be a dumb question but I have never hunted any state lands before.

The unit we are planning hunting antelope in Wyoming this year has a few parcels of state land and I was wondering if there are any special rules for hunting on them.

Thank s for any input.

About the only restrictions I

About the only restrictions I know of are that you can't drive off the establshed roads, if there are any, and there is no camping and no fires allowed on state land.  Also, you can't access them by going through private property without landowner permission.

Thanks for the information.

Thanks for the information. Thats pretty much what I thought but wanted to be sure.

We were hunting does last year but saw some pretty nice bucks on state land adjacent to the BLM we were hunting on. They were the most relaxed and unconcerened animals we had seen on the whole trip.

According to the statistics we should draw for sure with the 3 preference points we have and I want to start making my plans now.

As a rule...

You can hunt all of Wyoming's state lands if they are accessible by public road. You cannot cross private lands without permission to hunt state lands (or BLM or Forest Service for that matter)
