View Full Version : Deer near Riverton

Does anybody know of any good spots to go look at deer while they are on the winter range around Riverton? We just moved here and we love to go out and look at deer, any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!

Hunted near there this year for goats. Saw a few deer along the edges of the Beaver Rim, not many but a few.

My uncle killed a huge 5x5 whitetail in his back yard. You could go knock on his door :)

He actually does it most years, as he has 20 acres right outside the city limits and if his grand kids don't get one he does.

A lot of the area East of Riverton is limited draw, so that's a pretty good area if you can get a tag. Most of Riverton to the West until you get to Dubois is Wind River Indian Reservation, so you are not going to hunt that.

Units between Casper and Riverton have lots of public land, but most of them are limited on tags.

Thanks guys. I meant more to take the wife and kids out to look at deer not really hunt. Just trying to find an easy place to go where we can see lots of deer.

Casper Mountain has a ton of deer on it, but it's a 2 hour drive :)

How is Sinks Canyon these days?

The foothills around Lander like South Pass and Sinks Canyon that Edelweiss mentioned should get you to some deer, and maybe elk.
