Hunters are often looking for a home base that they and their friends can use during the various hunting seasons throughout the year. In Wyoming, elk are the most popular game to hunt in the summer, with bighorn sheep running a close second. Smaller game, such as snowshoes hares and cottontail rabbits are also popular targets then. During the autumn months, whitetail and mule deer, moose and antelope as well as elk are the most frequently hunted animals. Black bear, wild turkey and mountain lions are spring game that hunters typically track and shoot. All of this game has limits designated by the state's Game and Fish Department.

There are several factors hunters must look at when considering a hunting property for sale that they might like to buy. The amount of acreage on the property is important. A hunter who wants to be able to hunt and kill a good amount of game each year needs land that will support that game. The acreage should be accessible and able to sustain game for years to come. The habitat of the preferred game must be considered. Primarily open fields won't attract game that lives in dense woodland cover. If habitat isn't perfect but can be improved, the length of time it will take to accomplish that must be taken into account. The property should have a reliable source of both food and water.

Hunters interested in purchasing their own land for themselves, family and friends can use a local real estate broker. However, the broker may not be familiar with the best attributes of a hunting property. For that reason, it's a good idea to work with a dedicated broker who knows how to choose the right hunting property.
