Anyone on here from the railing area or close by? I have an opportunity to promote at work but it would require a move to rawlins WY. I'm from Oregon and won't take the position unless there is good duck and goose hunting. Any input helps thanks

Makesure to visit before you move. Not the prettiest place to live. There is early season bird hunting within a hours drive but froze up by thanksgiving. Then off to Torrington to end the year about three hour drive. Wyoming isn't known for its duck or goose hunting,way More big game hunting near by. I won't move to Rawlins for bird hunting

So would the north Platte river freeze over? And what about the big body of water that feeds that?

I lived in Green River for 40 years and Wapiti is correct about Rawlins,
waterfowl hunting there is poor and you will need to travel.

The Platte will most definitely freeze up. I lived along the Platte in Colorado for 2 seasons and it froze both years. I'm farther west in Wyoming and actually hunt Idaho a fair bit since it's so close and I have access to areas that never freeze.
