    wind river indian reservation

    was thinking of putting in for unit 83 for antelope in wyoming this year and noticed that a major portion of the unit is the wind river indian reservation. Was wondering if this is huntable or not?

    U cannot hunt the Rez land. There are areas within the exterior borders of the Rez that u can hunt. It's a logistical nightmare.

    Area 83 is the wrong number. I believe it's 97

    The rules are confusing here. You are allowed to hunt deeded land within the reservation. There is also an area called the withdrawal area, which is 97 antelope and 157 deer where normal rules apply.

    I believe the OP is asking about the south eastern part of 83 that is on the reservation. 83 is a unit I have considered before but decided against it because of the reservation land in it.

    Area 83, by definition, is not on the reservation. However, one would still deal with the access issues that are present in this area.

    looking at this map there is a part of 83 that appears to be on the reservation. That part would not be huntable would it?

    If this map is accurate with the unit boundary, then yes and no, to answer your question. You can still hunt deeded land, with the owners permission mind you, the rest would be unhuntable. Let me review the legal description of the area and I'll chime back in.

    Thanks lib! Someone tried to tell me the county line or the line between 83 and 117 was the reservation boundary and that part could be hunted but it seemed pretty sketchy to me and I decided to look at other units. That map is off of mytopo and their maps are made off of blm maps, they just center the map on the unit you want the map of so it should be accurate.

    Here's the description of the area. The last sentence includes any deeded land located within Hot Springs County and within the boundary of the reservation (the orange hatching in the hunt area), so that would mean your map is correct.

    Area 83. Owl Creek. Beginning at the junction of Wyoming Highway 120 and
    Wyoming Highway 431, easterly along Wyoming Highway 431 to the junction with
    Wyoming Highway 432; easterly along said highway to the Big Horn River; southerly up
    said river to the Wind River Reservation boundary, westerly, then northerly, then westerly
    along said boundary to the divide between Owl Creek and the South Fork of the Wood River;
    northeasterly along said divide to the divide between Cottonwood Creek and Gooseberry
    Creek; northeasterly along said divide to the divide between Gooseberry Creek and Grass
    Creek; easterly along said divide to Wyoming Highway 120, southeasterly along said
    highway to the junction of Wyoming Highway 120 and Wyoming Highway 431; in addition,
    all non-Indian fee title lands You are Hot Springs County within the exterior boundaries of
    the Wind River Reservation are included.
