Walk-in Area Rules(Hunting)

A Walk-In Area is a tract of private or state land on which the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has leased certain privileges for public hunting or fishing enjoyment. Please help keep these areas open yearly by respecting the landowner and following the Walk-In Area Rules.
