    Get some maps and hunt the Rattlesnake Hills. Some nice bucks taken there.
    Great draw ! How many points did you have ?

    you are correct rattlesnake HMA dosnt allow deer hunting but there is still some public land to hunt in the rattlesnakes.

    The Mountains are going to be out past hells half acre on your way to shoshoni from casper you will see them on your left hand side. congrats on the tag!

    There is a HUGE amount of WIA for 89. Here's the link: http://gf.state.wy.us/plpwhmprogram/...na/Natrona.pdf

    I don't know how good of country that is for deer but it would be a ton of country to look at.

    I hunted it from 1992 till 1997. Area 89 used to alternate between limited entry and general area back in early 90's. I hunted the Dumbell ranch and also accessed the Rattlesnake's from Dry Creek Rd. on the east side. I bought 40 acres on the wast side of Mtns. in 1996. You can drive Poisen Spider Rd. out of Casper going west to the Rattlesnakes also. I forgot but think it's about 50-60 miles.
    You can access Dry Creek Rd. on east side from Hwy 220 not to far east of Muddy Gap Junction. I never had a hard time finding bucks there, just finding big ones back then. I think it's a lot better now that it's been limited entry for awhile. I think the Dumbell Ranch is walk in area now. Haven't been in there since 1997. Don't know. I don't even know if Norm and Gaynell Park still own it but they were great people. The biggest buck I killed there was only about 24 in. but I think it's one of the two biggest bodied deer I have shot. The other was in Reg. D near Chugwater. only around 24 in 4x4 but a wheat fed toad. I bet you will have a great hunt. Eastman's rated area 89 a blue chip area about 3 yrs ago. May still be ? Good luck and post pics !
