    Wyoming HMA

    Have any of you hunted some of the many HMA's in Wyoming? Seems like a good place to DIY. I assume all the rules concerning draws and preference points would be the same but It looks like you could access some state and BLM land from these places. Or are they just overrun with hunters?

These lights are solar powered and use LED's. but what is great is you blow them up like beach ball and you get a nice glowing light as big as a grapefruit.
