Maps to Wyoming's 482,396 private land walk-in area acres for the 2004 hunting season are now available at license agents and Game and Fish Department offices.

The free 56-page atlas featuring 384 areas in 21 counties is also posted on the G&F Web site gf.state.wy.us.

Matt Buhler, the G&F’s access coordinator, reminds hunters that walk-in areas are sometimes not open the entire season for that species.

“So, don’t assume that all walk-in areas are open for all species all of the time,” he said. “It is the responsibility of the hunter to know when the area’s are open and for which species.”

In its seventh year, hunters and anglers can continue to help fund the Walk-In Area Program. Each license and application has a box to check for an additional contribution to the Private Lands/Public Wildlife Access Program through Access Yes.

Last year there were 425,830 private land walk-in area acres available for hunting.
