    I hunted in 90 a few years ago. I also hunted antelope south of 97. Don't count on Jeffrey city for supplys. Top off your gas tank every day. It's fairly empty country (of people). An ATV would be handy. Hunt early and late. Get good maps. It can be very hot in October. Look for water.
    If I hunted the area again I would try to hunt later in the season.

    There was plenty of public access. I used a map chip in my GPS that tells you land status. It was very handy and worth the $100. There were hunters around, mostly on weekends and at points of public access. Some were hunting antelope, some deer. It was hot and I only saw deer mornings and late afternoon. Where I was, there were a lot of 2 tracks. Many were too rough for my vehicle thats why a ATV could be useful. Call the biologist for information. I met him one day at a wayside and talked to him. Area 90, I hunted isn't open to general licenses so I can't give you an exact spot. There is a road on the southern boundary of 90 along a rim that that would provide access if the weather is dry. I saw a lot of small bucks, does, and fawns.

    Hey Killshot
    I hunted Reg. E for 5 yrs. from 1993 to 1997. I've been all over that area. There was a ranch I used to hunt which I think is a HM or Walk in area now called the Dumbell Ranch. The couple who owned it were Norm and Gaynell Park. She was an awesome lady. Used to charge 5 bucks to hunt and gave you a map of the property (90,000 acres) , Was in area 68/69 antelope and 89 and 97 deer, That's how I ended up buying 40 acres on the east side of the Rattlesnake Mtns. in 1996. She would let me use their bath tub (was no shower) and barn to take care of deer/lopers. I shot one nice buck by the sweetwater river right in front of Independance Rock. The Granite Hills have deer sometimes. They bed there after feeding in the fields and watering in river. Lots of lopers. You can drive north on Dry Creek road off hwy 220 and glass a lot of country. Area 89 (Rattlesnake Mtns.) to your right/east is a limited entry area. you can drive all the way to Hwy 20/28. Gas Hills right there used to be a good area. I think area 90 is limited entry but 92,94,96 and 97 aren't. Oops, I just looked. Gas Hills is in area 90. Anyway. I liked the area but not tons of deer. Good lucks !

    I shot a buck on Green mtn. way back in 1995.There used to be a fair amout of deer there. The Sweetwater rocks you mention maybe the Granite Hills I mentioned. They paralell the Sweetwater river. The Dumbell Ranch I mentioned is part of the Walk in Area of Natrona County. The HMA's are under Rattlesnake. That's where my property is near but it's in deer area limited entry area 89 and antelope 74. The Dumbell ranch is on the west side of the Rattlesnake Hills ( 8900' hills...). My property is on east side. The Rattlesnake hills are part of area 89 so it's off limits with a Reg. E tag.There is BLM land mixed in there too. Green Mtn. and Ferris Mtn. are good for deer but you don't really have to get high to find them. More water down low. You can pick up the Walk In and HMA booklets at any Game and Fish Dept. , Walmart, Sporting Goods Store, etc.

    I hunted Antelope there years ago. There were plenty of Goats and we saw a lot of deer, some pretty nice ones (165-170ish) but not a TON of them. I like the country and I think, if you put a little time in, the Dumbell HMA will produce for you. Sounds like Huntwyodon has it all pretty well right on the money.
