    This is correct. Hiland, population 10, has the two fuel pumps. One for diesel and one for gas as well as the store/bar. There's also the store in Waltman, but it may or may not be open.

    I have shot several whitetails there on doe tags. The ranchers hate them as they love their hay fields. See them there usually in the evening feeding. I have seen some great bucks too. I have the sheds of a huge buck.

We will basically be camping/hunting in the North Western portion of the unit towards region Y.

    Now to the question.....20/26 from Casper to Shoshoni is the southern border of 34. Is there gas or a conv store on that route? Like in Powder River, Natrona, Arminto ect....

    If not, the closest one I can find is Lysite which according to Google Maps is 1 hour and 49 minutes away from our Option A camp site.

    IS there gas to be had on the southern portion of region Y that may be closer?

    I plan on taking three 5 gallon jugs with me, but we may need more than that if there isn't anything closer. We will be up there for 8-9 days.

    While I am on the subject of length of stay......what do you guys/gals do with the capes of the deer and antelope while in the filed for so long? Dry Ice and packed in coolers with the meat?

    Thanks in advance for any tips.....
    Cobbhunts,
    On the subject of capes, I used to cape and completely flesh,turn(eyes,ears,nose,lips),salt all my capes. Lately though I've been hauling a small chest freezer in a utility trailer and running it with a real small generator. ( This works especially well during early season antelope and elk hunts) It works great and once it's cold you only need to run your generator a few hours a day! I used this option on our WY antelope hunt last year and with a little work I was able to get all three bucks (meat and capes in the freezer) I like this option when I'm not packing in, because you can wait for a more controlled environment to finish processing the capes. In most cases your taxidermist does this part for free anyway, because this part can be touchy and possibly make more work later if done incorrectly. Also, If it's cold out a cape will keep for 4 or 5 days easily ( longer if done carefully) as long as you let it cool real well, then roll it up flesh side together and put it in a breathable game bag. If kept outside or in a cooler just remember to keep it dry.( stay away from plastic bags unless your completely freezing it after it's cooled, because they don't breath and promote sweating and hair slippage if not cold enough!)
    Good Luck! and hope to see pics!

    Cowboy, it seems the ranchers have figured out how much the Whitetail bucks were worth. They'll let you shoot does perhaps, but NOT bucks unless you give them or their outfitters some "Bucks". And in some cases, big Bucks.
