    If you can believe this...Vice President "Crazy Uncle" Joe Biden thought "Cattle Guards" were real LIVE people that guarded cattle!
    He though that the Government could save money by eliminating those "Cattle Guard" jobs! What a Dip-Stick!!

    They're the green tube steel gates. Powder River was the brand and only kind you could buy around here for the most part till about 10 years ago.

    Oh sorry, well shows what I know, lol. I hadn't heard of them called Powder River gates before. Learning all kinds of of things on here today. Portagee gate and gap gate were a new ones, too. I hadn't heard auto gate before I got married either. She is a Nebraska girl, so I though it must be one those eastern words. I didn't say aspirated before I met her either, but things don't go down the wrong tube anymore. Weird how that stuff happens.

    Thanks for the info topgun, you have been very helpful on a couple of topics on this site for me. In fact it was because of your recommendation for R way back in January that made me apply for R! To clarify what roads I can drive on should I call the BLM office, the GF, or state of Wyoming? Also I think you are the man to answer this for me. What type of elevation should I focus on in R? Do I go for steeper rises or gradual elevation? Also when I look at google earth there are very little green areas, should I focus on that?

    How does this area look to you veteran mule deer hunters? My group was supposed to go out and scout in person next weekend but unfortunately we are no longer unable too, so I have to rely on google earth. Since I have never been out west it is hard for me to visual what I am seeing on google earth as good deer country. I ordered Mike Eastmans book and I can't wait to read that, I hope that will help with choosing a location. So in the mean time I would like some opinions. I blacked out the GPS coordinates because I don't want to run into a hundred other hunters, of course if you want the coordinates just PM me.

    First off, to answer the road question you asked about, you want to contact the BLM Office for anything involving land within their jurisdiction and the National Forest people for any land under their jurisdiction. Also, contact the county to see what roads they maintain and that are considered public where they go through any private land that you may need to go through.

    IMHO the best places to deer hunt in R for a newbie out there will be down in the lower BLM and state lands to the west part of the Region. There are deer up in the Forest, but you're talking high elevations and by the time the deer season opens you risk the chance of getting weathered out up there. It also is harder hunting as far as seeing deer in the heavier cover that's up there. I would go down into the lower BLM lands and look for the roughest canyons and cuts you can find, set up where you're out of sight at a good glassing spot and look for deer with your binos and even a spotting scope. Shell Canyon and all the fingers coming off of it is where I would start. If you just want to see deer, you can also hug the private ag. lands down in the lower areas and possibly catch deer going back and forth to the adjacent public land after they have fed in the fields during the night. If you see deer one day and can't get on them for a shot, get to a good vantage point before daylight and at least a couple hours before dark to try and catch them. They get pretty predictable unless they get a lot of pressure with the does and smaller bucks coming out pretty early in the evening, but the better deer will be close to dark before they make an appearance most of the time. The last part of the season is the best by far as the rut gets closer and the better bucks start moving more to check out does

The link uses some big words, but there are pictures for you to look at showing what I was talking about that makes it a lot easier to open and close one. Click on the first image and it will enlarge and then you can follow through to look at the rest of the pictures. It's really a very simple, slick way to make that type of gate much easier to use.
