The Hat Six Travel Center is located right outside Casper and features amenities such as free WIFI, showers, RV parking, a kids’ play center, a dog park and a souvenir shop specializing in Wyoming-made products, such as soaps, honey, metal signs, jams, pottery and fossils.
As a first-time sponsor in 2018, Hat Six Travel Center’s Business Advisor, Tiffany Gamble, attended the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt and harvested her first big game animal.
According to Tiffany, “Hunting big game for the first time at an all-women’s hunt last year was a great experience. I could not think of a better environment for new hunters to learn to hunt. The mentor hunters and guides are so supportive. Hat Six is excited to provide this experience for a scholarship hunter this year!” says Gamble.

“Continued support from Wyoming businesses and past hunters like Tiffany Gamble allows the Women’s Antelope Hunt to grow,” said Rebekah Smith, WYWF Director. “We are always grateful when our supporters are able to experience the magic of the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt first-hand. And, it is equally exciting when they pass that experience on to a scholarship recipient.”
This year’s hunt will be held Oct. 10-13, 2019 and will bring together more than 40 female hunters from across the nation at the Ranch at Ucross in northeast Wyoming for a weekend of hunting, learning, mentorship and camaraderie, as well as raising funds and awareness for the Wyoming Women’s Foundation.
Please visit the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt webpage at wyomingwomensantelopehunt.org for more information on sponsorship and individual participation, including scholarships. Based on its level of contribution, each sponsor has the opportunity to invite women to hunt at the event. The foundation is also seeking dinner sponsors and in-kind donations for its fundraising auction dinner on Friday, Oct. 11.
