Bone of some kind. I've not seen this type shape so don't even know where to start looking . The bone was found in a rock pile appx 20-25 feet off he snake River in Hoback, WY. This was found on private property and with owners permission. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

Based on the Geolex map were looking at the Hoback Formation which is Paleogene in age not Mesozoic.

Yeah,this is no way Paleocene or Cretaceous. This is either modern or Pleistocene. Distal humerus of a cow/bison.
