    ATVs ???

    I've been trying to call the Game & Fish all day to get details but the message says they're all busy and to call back later.

    So, this ought to be easy enough for someone to help me with. What are the rules for using ATVs on public land. We're hunting WY public ground for the first time this fall and wondering if it's worth it to bring them all the way from Missouri. At this point all I know is that you need a special permit. If we kill an antelope a mile off the road on BLM ground can we go pick it up with an ATV? Thanks.

    you need a wyoming ORV sticker which is 15 bucks and if I remember right, I think all your "supposed" to travel off the road is 50 yds, but i've never seen anyone say anything about it, as long as you just go in to get your antelope and back out and not just running around off road, I don't think its a big deal imo

    I'm not even sure its 50 yrds..I thought you had to stay on the roads on public land. I can tell you one thing, its a hefty fine when they catch you..lol

    They're both right. You'll need an ORV sticker and you have to stay on the roads.

    If you shoot it a mile off the road then you better either de-bone it and put it in your pack or make sure nobody is around and drive like a banshee!

    The 2nd option sounds like a lot more fun!

    Or you could play by the rules so hunters can maintain a positive image to the general public.

    My comment was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. Sorry if it was taken the wrong way. Of course I plan to play by the rules. If I didn't do you think I would go to this trouble to even find out what the rules are?

    MOhunter,

    I understand your comment was tongue in cheek, and I appreciate you taking the time to research the rules. It is just that the comment won't be quoted tongue in cheek when those enemies of hunting use it out of context to paint us with the broad brush. It was unfortunate to me that you asked about the law, but were given the answer to just not get caught, joking or not.

    I am sure the closest BLM office close to your hunting area can give you a definitive answer. I know the rules in MT are different depending on location.

    Good luck on your hunt!

    Geeze, this thread just got tense all of a sudden. He was given a serious answer and then a joke was made.

    What exactly is the problem again?
