HUNTING LODGE GENERAL INFORMATION 2022 For a full service hunt, we offer lodging accommodations at the privately owned Mooncrest Lodge. This includes all meals. Conditions permitting and arranged at the time of the hunt, we have a hunting camp that is accessible by horseback only and would utilize tents. The hunting camp is the only permitted camp in the Trout Creek and Rattlesnake Creek Drainages, and is in the heart of the non-wilderness section of the Shoshone National Forest that is part of the Hunt Area 53. When booking the hunt, you may discuss all the possible options to make your trip successful and enjoyable. The lodge is approximately 45 minutes from downtown Cody, WY. The last 9 miles is on a private, gravel road. The lodge has a telephone for local calls only. There is no cell or internet service at the lodge. If you need to make long distance calls, please bring a telephone card. A maximum speed limit of 25 mph is allowed on the private road. This is livestock open range as well as wildlife habitat. Mooncrest Ranch and Mooncrest Lodge are located in beautiful Rattlesnake Canyon, just north of the Buffalo Bill Reservoir and west of Rattlesnake Mountain. This is a working cattle ranch. Weather and conditions at high altitude can change quickly. Please be sure you bring appropriate clothing in addition to your rifle and ammunition. Weather conditions will determine the ability to utilize horses, if requested. This will be at the discretion of the guide(s). Your safety, the safety of our guides and our animals is of primary importance.

Hunting Forms & Links

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department Home Page. Informative and Reliable information for todays sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts!

We receive many questions about the process to get a license to hunt in Wyoming.  The Wyoming Game & Fish Department manages the wildlife in Wyoming and manages the hunting and licenses.  Their

website gives detailed information about the process, application deadline dates and other useful information for you as you plan your hunt.  The link to their entire site is provided above.



Because this is a draw system, or basically a lottery, no one is guaranteed success at obtaining a license.  Some who have maximum preference points are not successful at the draw; some with minimum points are successful.
