Why Hunting and Outdoor Groups Meet in Casper, WY

Here are some of the top reasons why hunting and outdoor associations are gathering in Casper, WY.


They like gathering in a mountain town made for the wild at heart.

With an 8,130-foot mountain ascending 3,000 feet above Downtown Casper (and only around 25 minutes away), groups aren’t far from some of the most adventurous terrain in the state.

Hunting, fishing, trailblazing, biking…you name it, Casper’s made for it.

It’s one of the best places groups could celebrate National Hunting & Fishing Day.

National Hunting and Fishing Day is Saturday, September 23, 2018, so if you’re planning an event during this time make sure your group extends their stay into this celebrated weekend.

Casper is one of the top places in the country for big and small game hunting—game like pronghorn, elk, deer, duck, geese, pheasant and dove can all be found.

Drop a hook in the North Platte; fish hotspots like Miracle Mile, Alcova Reservoir or Grey Reef.

If you’re planning on meeting in Casper after 2018, then no worries—the national day occurs every fourth Saturday in September so no matter the year, you’ll always have an excuse to celebrate this national day.


Only in Casper can groups experience bucket list fishing like this…


Groups are in good company.
