2013 Deer Hunt

Youth Deer Hunt

The Wyoming 4-H Program offers a deer hunting experience for youth ages 14-18 who may not have hunted or may be in circumstances which make an opportunity difficult.   The goal is to aid youth in having a positive first-time experience under the supervision of caring adults that share their knowledge and wisdom.  Safety is paramount throughout the process and oversight is provided by UW 4-H volunteers and industry leaders.

The hunt takes place in Northeastern Wyoming on the Solitude Ranch located 5 miles east of Devils Tower and features spectacular scenery and plenty of wildlife.  It typically occurs in early November and is primarily for whitetail doe deer.  Since it's inception in 2011, the hunt has had a 98% success rate and 100% opportunity to harvest.

All 4-H members between 14 and 18 years of age are eligible.  However, preference is given to first-time hunters that are involved in 4-H Shooting Sports projects for rifle, pistol, muzzle loading, archery, shotgun, wildlife, or hunting.

Adult chaperones will be selected by the Wyoming State 4-H Office.

2016 Hunt Application is available here! Applications for the 2016 hunt are due by July 15, 2016 at 4:30 pm.
