General HMA Information

The Deer-Creek Hunter Management Area (HMA) is located south of Glenrock, via the Mormon Canyon road or Boxelder road, and is comprised of private and/or leased lands of the VR Ranch, Richard & Mary Grant, Danaher Ranch, Stearns Limited Partnership, Wagonhound Land & Livestock, Sno-Shoe Ranch, and Turtle Rock Ranch.

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.
