Hulett is nestled near Devils Tower along the banks of the Belle Fourche River, surrounded by red cliffs and timber, consisting mainly of ponderosa pine, oak, and cottonwoods. In the month of November, Hulett is known as the "Whitetail Deer Capital" 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. An iconic western themed town, the primary source of employment in Hulett is the timber industry with two sawmills. Local amenities include the Hulett Municipal Airport and Devils Tower Golf Club. Hulett is also home of the annual Old West Invitational Turkey Shoot, a fundraiser for wildlife conservation in Wyoming. The area is often referred to as the "banana belt" of Wyoming.
