Camp Guernsey

2019 Landowner of the Year - Laramie Region

Landowners: Wyoming Military Department

Camp Guernsey is a premier Joint Training Center consisting of more than 78,000 acres of maneuver area, training ranges, and 64 square miles of air space which provide for combined arms training using multiple scenarios over varied terrain.   

Aside from their main duty of training soldiers, Camp Guernsey has been a formal partner of the Department since 2003, when it entered into an agreement to create the “Broom Creek” Hunter Management Area, providing the public with access to hunt pronghorn antelope, deer, elk, mountain lion, predators, turkey, waterfowl, small game, and doves.

The camp is probably best known for its spring turkey hunting. Every spring, numerous  hunters convey onto the camp to try and call a big gobbler within shotgun range. Camp Guernsey’s unique habitat is perfect for Merriam’s turkeys; it has just the right amount of topography, conifer cover, and grasslands needed for them. The camp recently approved the release of 73 Merriam’s turkeys from the Black Hills to help bolster the existing population.

The camp sits within the Rawhide Elk herd unit and provides opportunity for hunters in an area that is 90% private land. The camp also accommodates disabled hunters by sectioning off parcels of land to provide opportunities to harvest mature bulls for hunters confined to wheelchairs.

Camp Guernsey is more than deserving of this award. They are instrumental in our nation’s safety and have been an incredible partner with the Department for over 20 years.
