Your Hosts


With a modest population and a history that dates back to 1881, Hulett has a strong tradition of welcoming newcomers with fabled Western hospitality.  Built on the banks of the Belle Fourche River and surrounded by the beautiful red rim rocks of northeastern Wyoming’s Bear Lodge Mountains, Hulett is a safe and peaceful western community. Named for Louis Hulett and his family, who settled here in 1881, the town was legally incorporated in 1951.

Hulett is ideally located for recreation nestled in a red canyon with the Belle Fourche River meandering slowly through the town.  Devils Tower is probably the most famous landmark in the Bear Lodge Mountains. Devils Tower, a soaring volcanic uplift, so impressed Theodore Roosevelt that he designated it America’s first National Monument in 1906.

Here, at this joining of the Black Hills and the Great Plains, deer, turkey, elk, bison, pronghorn antelope, pheasant, badgers, prairie dogs, trout, bass, hawks, eagles, meadowlarks and many other animals make their  home in the tall grasses and forested hills of this region. Plants and animals common to all corners of the continent exist in the Hulett area, where the flat expanses of the east meet the rocky heights of the American West.

The Greater Hulett Community Center (GHCC) is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation to reconstruct and re-purpose the former Hulett School into the Greater Hulett Community Center. The residents of the Community of Hulett will play a large part in the Old West Invitational Turkey Shoot. Local groups will provide the support needed for guides, lodging, meals and transportation. Local Landowners will provide the opportunity for hunting on private land where only guided hunts are traditionally allowed. A portion of the profits from the Old West Invitational Turkey Shoot will be allocated to the GHCC.


Wyoming is home to over 600 different species of wildlife, 230,000 acres of standing water and over 20,000 miles of streams and rivers. The state represents a truly one of a kind resource that is shared and admired by everyone who crosses our borders. Wyoming’s natural beauty and a seemingly endless bounty of wild game, provides the recreationalist and outdoorsman with countless opportunities to enjoy this precious and fragile resource. Wyoming Wildlife Foundation measures its success not by the dollars raised, but by the “On the Ground” projects we fund and prides itself on funding worthy wildlife and habitat improvement projects that produce an immediate impact but preserve and perpetuate the resource for the enjoyment of future generations. Since 2001 Wyoming Wildlife Foundation has generated nearly $4,000,000 for the benefit of wildlife and habitat projects in Wyoming. The accomplishments of The Foundation to date have been significant, but our goal is to work even harder to develop the resources needed to assure that the future of Wyoming’s great outdoors will be just as bright as our past. A detailed list of our completed projects can be seen on our website at

Our Priorities:
Wyoming Wildlife Foundation, a component fund of the Wyoming Community Foundation, raises funds to support projects that are critical to sustaining and improving natural resources only in Wyoming. The Foundation has four primary areas of focus: Species Conservation, Habitat and Aquatic Improvement, Conservation Education and Access.

Wyoming Wildlife Foundation funds projects that benefit threatened game and non-game species in decline by funding research, education and/or restorative projects that improve habitat and water quality, by enhancing the land and water to sustain and manage wildlife. The Foundation also funds conservation and education projects intended to promote, inspire and encourage youth to consider careers in the great outdoors. After all, the ability to conserve and protect the resource depends on our ability to attract our future scientist, conservationist and outdoor law enforcement officers. Wyoming Wildlife Foundation also seeks funding to provide access to the land for hunters and non-hunters alike and supports the Wyoming Game and Fish Departments Access program and conservation easements that provide private land access for hunters and recreationalists.

The work of The Foundation depends on tax-deductible contributions from private individuals, public foundations, and other willing funders like you to support our projects. Wyoming Wildlife Foundation is not a membership organization.  Unlike other conservation and wildlife organizations, we do not solicit annual memberships to support our conservation efforts.  We don’t offer incentives or trinkets to entice you to support wildlife; your gifts go directly to supporting “on the ground” projects that benefit wildlife. A portion of the profits from the Old West Invitational Turkey Shoot will go to Wyoming Wildlife Foundation.
