Description

more
This data set represents the 2017 white-tailed deer hunt area and herd unit boundaries for Wyoming. The layer was originally digitized at a scale of 1:100,000, using USGS 1:100,000 DRGs as a backdrop for heads up digitizing. Updates requested by Wyoming Game and Fish Biological Services Department, were completed by selecting needed features from other layers, including roads, streams, HUCs, NAIP 2009 rasters. Hunt area boundary descriptions are part of hunting regulations, which are approved and published annually by the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission. When needed, the 2008 edition (1st Edition) of the Wyoming Road and Recreation Atlas (Benchmark Maps) was consulted for road and other information.
