    One day...eventually, I'm getting out to Wyoming. A vast portion of the state is administered by the BLM. I am unfamiliar with this bureau (I don't think we have any BLM land here at all in ky). Does the citizen have free access to BLM land? Hunting, fishing, carrying a gun?

    You can carry a gun, and as far as I can tell you can hunt, and fish but I'm no expert so you can look here under Title III Administration, Sec. 302

    Another site to lok at would be: http://gf.state.wy.us/downloads/pdf/PublicUseRules.pdf




    or I have copied and pasted that section from the BLM and uploaded it into this file:

    i sent a question regarding that while i was visiting arizona- they told me i could carry and even target shoot if i was not within a quarter mile of houses or people or roads. and if I cleaned up my mess...

    doubt is a distraction from reality. fear is acknowledging doubt as reality.

    it's time to tap in to a higher reality; the one you were made for.

    I shoot on BLM land here just outside Casper about once a month (weather permitting), feel free to do so in a safe manner. We just ask that you police the area when you are finished.

    I don't leave a mess. Often, I end up picking up other people's trash...

    Yes, OC is allowed in BLM and hunting is also permitted per local hunting regulations.
