General HMA Information

The DeSmet Hunter Management Area (HMA) is located five miles north of Buffalo on Interstate 90, just south of Lake DeSmet, and is comprised of private and/or leased lands of SASOL Chemicals.

Each hunter must possess an appropriate permission slip and vehicle pass for the time period and type(s) of animal they are hunting before entering the HMA.

Each Hunter Management Area has a unique set of ranch rules. It is the hunter’s responsibility to know, understand, and comply with the ranch rules in order to utilize the HMA. Failure to comply is a violation of Game and Fish Commission Regulations and may result in fines, the termination of access privileges, and/or other legal penalties. Hunters should abide by the ranch rules and respect the landowner and the land for continued access opportunities. Remember, we are guests on their property!

The Wyoming Game & Fish Department commends these participating ranches for their contributions to wildlife management and hunter access.
