Wyoming Unit 58 Elk with max points

I have max points in Wyoming for elk. I am looking at possibly applying in Unit 58. I understand there is good access during the rifle hunt, do to the Access YES program. Does anyone know if you can get good access during the archery hunt in September in Unit 58?

check the private lands public access site

There are no Walk In Areas in 2011, but there is the Carter Mountain HMA, which is huge.  However the big catch is that it doesn't open to elk hunting until October 1.  So basically no, unless you were planning on hunting in October.

Unit 58

Hey Ex... I have been thinking more about Unit 58.  Are you saying that the large ranches that are normally open for access during the rifle season starting October 1, will not be open in 2012?  I found the website and it appeared what I saw was for the 2011 hunting season, and not next year. You seem to be more familiar with this then I am.  Thanks.

The 2012 PLPW Access stuff won't be available until the summer.   However, the Hoodoo Ranch (Carter Mountain) has been part of the program for several years.  But it doesn't open to the public until the October 1.
