View Full Version : Wyoming...Just a doe, can anyone help!

Hey guys I have had the curse of the antelope my entire life. I tried to figure out Wyoming last year for the leftover sale but just ran out of time. I vowed to do it again this year and tag my first doe. I have struck out in Craig CO on does and once when I was young even struck out in Wyoming. I have OTC CO archery hunted them the past 3 years and those wary goats keep getting the best of me. Additionally, the Colorado point creep has had me chasing a tag for 10 years, but that's beside the point.

I live in Ft Collins so I am trying to find a spot close. I checked the leftover lists and walk in access and decided 36 might hold some potential to finally tag one of these critters. I took a drive up there today and pretty well covered the unit looking for goats. After 180 miles of backroads I had officially seen one group of 5 does and a buck. The walk in and state ground looked promising but there wasn't a critter in sight.

Thus I'm desperate now with leftovers going on sale Tuesday. Can anyone offer me up some advice? I am willing to travel a little ways for an area that holds good numbers. Essentially I just want one for the freezer. If you could help that would be awesome. I'd be willing to share some CO elk/mule deer knowledge in exchange. Feel free to pm me as I'm sure most would be more comfortable with that.

Thanks guys and the best of luck this season!

The leftover Type 6 Doe/Fawn tags go on sale Tuesday.

Oh I didn't know that the doe/fawn went on sale at a different time. Seems weird. Lol

Well anyways, sheridan is probably further than you want to go but there are a lot of does up around here and I would be more than happy to help you out.

Liv2Hnt, I am also wanting to shoot a couple does and most of the leftover tags are in areas that are mostly private. I called the G&F office in Laramie and they sent me a ton of names of landowners to contact for permission on private land (some were in unit 36). I haven't started calling anyone yet, but I am hoping these ranchers would let me shoot a couple does for free or very reasonable tresspass fee. Just tell them what units you are interested in and they will email you a list by unit. Good luck.
