SE Wyoming Whitetails

I am thinking about doing some whitetail hunting down in the SE part of Wyoming. I know they kill some really good bucks down around Wheatland but I assume thats all on private ground for major $$. Is there much/any public land on the Laramie River or smaller creeks? Are there places you can pay a reasonable trespass fee to hunt? I would prefer to go it on public land and love to hunt the river bottoms. I grew up hunting whiteys in Michigan and find sitting on my butt and waiting like you have to in the east to be boring as can be. I really love the action and scenery hunting the bottoms. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Your idea is a good one, but to be honest, you won't find hardly any public land on a river or creek in SE Wyoming. And what little land there is gets absolutely hammered. I'm an outfitter, and I try to help as much as I can. The only good bucks I'm aware of are taken from private property. And trespass hunts are not very likely to get you a trophy either. The places are just not managed to allow bucks to mature.

There are a few outfitters that take big-time whitetails. Our best thus far was 192+ gross, but we've taken many other good ones, too. I would suggest that you look at another location or save for a guided hunt. Sorry I'm not more help. Shoot me a pm if you want some specifics.

ICMDEER, I would like to see a picture of the 192 buck if you don't mind.

I don't have a copy of the picture handy, but you can see it and more on our website at www.triplecreekhunts.com where there's all sorts of pics and info.

If you need more, give me a holler. I'll be glad to help.

I have hunted mule deer and Whitetail out of Wheatland and had really good luck getting permison to hunt. I know of about 5 land owners that are free or a small tress fee. I have found that most land owners in that area hate the whitetails because of crop damage. I shot only one whitey there that was 140s but my dads buddys have shot one big guy and some very good bucks there. One was 181 and a couple 150 to 160 range. Matter of fact the 2 largest came from a small ranch that was free and they wanted them to shoot more. I hope you have a good hunt for those little suckers i myself would rather chase big muleys around. These are 2 bucks from Wheatland area from a couple of years ago

Aaron:

Those are a couple of nice looking bucks. Congratulations. I hunted around Wheatland 2000-2003 but I could never get permission on the private ranches. I hunted around Laramie Peak on the NF. I was able to get permission to hunt private property for antelope (Area 38) but never for deer. The ranchers I talked to were good people.
