A Walk-In Area (WIA) is a tract of private or state land on which the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has leased certain privileges for public hunting or fishing enjoyment. Please help keep these areas open each year by respecting the landowner, following the Walk-In Area rules, and by donating to Access Yes when you purchase your hunting or fishing licenses.
Hunters or anglers are not required to seek permission from the landowner directly as long as they are hunting approved species, during the access period as shown in the access table for that Walk-In Area. All WIAs have signs posted to mark the boundaries.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise in the access table for a certain WIA, the following regulations apply to all private and state lands enrolled in the Walk-In Area Program:
Important definitions for access areas explicitly allowing the use of motorized vehicles:
An Established Road is defined as “any road or trail which has been graded or constructed to carry motor vehicles or on which repeated motor vehicle traffic has created well-defined tracks”.
A Designated Road is defined as “only established roads marked as open by a white arrow sign”.
