Hunters who draw a permit are required to attend an orientation at either 6 a.m. at the Laramie Regional Office, 528 S. Adams, or 5:30 a.m. at the Cheyenne Headquarters building, 5400 Bishop Blvd., on the first morning of their hunt period. Hunters will need to print their permission slip, ranch rules and map and bring them to the orientation. During the orientation, hunter coordinators will inform hunters where the elk have most recently been seen. The coordinators will also go over ranch rules and ethics. Copies of the ranch rules are also available online.
Successful hunters may print permission slips and maps online at http://wgfd.wyo.gov. Each hunter must have a signed permission slip with them at all times while on the HMAP. In addition, each vehicle must have a vehicle identification slip visible while driving on the HMAP. Successful hunters are only granted access to hunt on the specific two-day hunt period for which their permit is valid. Scouting or trespassing on the HMAP prior to the designated access period is prohibited. The HMAP is open to antlerless elk hunting only with valid elk area 5 type 6, area 6 types 1, 4, and 6, and general licenses. No other species may be hunted on the HMAP.
Only the hunter who drew the permit may hunt during their two-day timeframe. Friends or family are welcome to come help pack out the animal, but may not hunt unless they also possess an Iron Mountain HMAP permit for that time period. Hunters are reminded to be prepared for hunting in fairly rugged terrain. ATVs are prohibited on Iron Mountain HMAP lands.
If you are unable to make your hunt period no replacement hunt periods will be issued. Hunters will not be able to reschedule their hunt period due to weather, personal, or other reasons. Hunt periods may be cancelled at very short notice due to inclement weather conditions to protect roads from excessive damage.
Contact the Laramie regional office at (307) 745-4046 with any questions.
