Unit 7 in wyoming
Im looking at going to wyoming for an antelope hunt for the first time with my father and brother. I have been doing some looking online and at a few different forums to find a unit. We need one with a good amount of public land and easy access to it. also would like a spot that has really good draw odds and still have a great amount of antelope(dont have be big trophy). Saw a few forums on other sites that said unit 7 had a large amount of easily accessible public land and a good amount of antelope. Just wondering if anyone has had experience in this unit and could give me some good info on it or any other suggested units. A link to a good place to get a good map of the unit to show me the private, public areas. Greatly appreciate any help some one could give me.
i hunted unit 7 last year. i would tell you to pick another unit this year. they had a bad winter kill and population is way down also tags were cut in half.might be better to look at 29
I live right by area 7. although the numbers have dropped it wasnt because of the winter. The antelope are dying off from a few different diseases. Also they have slowly been migreating south on more of the private lands. Drive through there frequently and on any given day you can still see about 2 to 3000 goats. There is a lot of public land. The seven mile basin holds antelope every where but gets hit hard by a lot of nonresidents. If you draw a tag PM me and I can set you up with some maps so you can plan your hunt.
