For a full service hunt, we offer
lodging accommodations at the privately owned Mooncrest Lodge. This includes all meals.
This is a working cattle ranch, the camp is in the heart of the Shoshone National Forest.
When booking the hunt, you may discuss all the possible options to make your trip successful and enjoyable.
The hunting camp is the only permitted camp in the Trout Creek and Rattlesnake Creek Drainages of Hunt Area 53.
Within the Shoshone National Forest, this is home to a large non-migratory herd, and offers premier trophy game habitat.
Located in beautiful Rattlesnake Canyon, just north of the Buffalo Bill Reservoir and west of Rattlesnake Mountain.
Weather and conditions at high altitude can change quickly. Come prepared with your rifle, ammunition, and appropriate clothing.
Conditions permiting and arranged at the time of the hunt, we have a hunting camp that is accessible by horseback only and would utilize tents.
We are located in area 53 of the Shosone national forest, with approximately 6,000 deeded acres and surrounded by public land.
The expertise of our guides at Mooncrest provide a quality hunting experience.

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.
Wyoming has a license draw system. There are no guarantees an individual or group will be successful. There is also a preference point system, with the points increasing each year. This, too, is explained on the WYG&F website. >>
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.
