Hunter Information Available at BLM Casper Field Office
Hunter information for the fall 2006 season is available through the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Operation Respect Program at the Casper Field Office.
Operation Respect promotes respect for the land, both public and private, provides information to the public on access and user ethics, and improves cooperative relations between public and private landowners. While the program is maintained year-round, it is especially emphasized during the fall hunting season.
Jim Murkin, Casper field manager comments, “Operation Respect is an important program because it encourages the safe and legal use of public lands. We are providing information to hunters that helps prevent trespass on private property.”
Hunter information packets will be provided free of charge to incoming hunters. BLM 1:100,000 scale maps showing public and private lands, and roads are also available for $4.
All hunter information items will be available at the Casper Field Office located at 2987 Prospector Drive. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Personnel with knowledge of the hunting areas and their accessibility will be on hand to answer questions.
BLM would like to remind hunters that partial fire restrictions are still in place in Natrona, Converse, Goshen, and Platte counties.
For further information call the Casper Field Office at 307-261-7600.
