Wyoming Game & Fish shares the following:

In 2019, deer hunters should be aware of a new boundary between Hunt Area 94 and Hunt Area 131. This new boundary was created to reduce the instances of hunting in a wrong area or during a closed season that seemed to be occurring along the old boundary, especially in the Oregon Buttes and Continental Peak areas. With hunt area 131 opening on October 1 each year, and hunt area 94 opening on October 15, it seemed hunters were pursuing deer that use both sides of the old boundary. Since area 131 has a lower density of mule deer and a shorter season, it seemed prudent to move the boundary north to reduce the pressure on those few deer that live along the old boundary.

The new boundary follows the Sweetwater River downstream from Wyoming Highway 28 to the Phelps/Dodge Bridge on the Three Forks-Atlantic City Road (B.L.M. Road # 2317) and then follows that road southeast to the Bison Basin Road (Fremont County Road # 281 and B.L.M. Road # 3221).
