Hulett, a small town in Crook County, Wyoming, with a population of 419 happy people and one old grouch, is nestled along the banks of the Belle Fourche River, surrounded by red cliffs and timber, consisting mainly of ponderosa pine, oak, and cottonwoods. Hulett has several annual events including the rodeo in June and motorcycle rally days in August. In the month of November Hulett is known as the "Whitetail Deer Capitol" because of the excellent deer hunting in the area. There is walleye and pike fishing at nearby Keyhole State Park and trout fishing at Cook Lake. The winter offers snowmobiling and cross-country skiing with groomed trails in the Bearlodge Mountains of the Black Hills National Forest.

Hulett is located on Highway 24, nine miles north of Devils Tower, the first national monument. Devils Tower was featured in the movie, "Close Encounters of The Third Kind." Hulett is very picturesque, with mostly western-style buildings. Tourists often jump from their cars and immediately start their video cameras or take snapshots of what appears to be a movie set. However, WE ARE FOR REAL! If you looking for an area that has it all, HULETT IS THE PLACE FOR YOU.

Sounds like we are bragging? We are! Currently under construction is the second nine of Devils Tower Golf Course to be completed by June 2006. There are two motels, three cafes, two bars, a medical clinic, bank, beauty shop, laundromat, video rental, hardware and grocery stores. Hulett also has an attorney, 0ne service station, one gas station, a taxidermist, western embroidery shop, two insurance agencies, one real estate office, car wash, RV park, five churches, one gift shop, guest ranches, and one of the best schools in the state. Hulett also has a recreation ground for rodeos, little league games, and a rifle range.

The primary source of employment in Hulett is the timber industry with two sawmills. The town also serves the ranchers in the surrounding area. Because Devils Tower has approximately 450,000 visitors a year, the tourist economy is booming. With an elevation of 3,500 feet, we are the lowest point in the state. The area is often referred to as the "banana belt" of Wyoming. The surrounding hills protect us from the high winds for which Wyoming is famous. We usually get about eighteen inches of moisture a year, mainly in the form of snow. A hot day means temperatures in the mid nineties, and the evenings are always cool in the summer. Home air conditioners are not common and are rarely needed.
