    There are a absolute ton of people up there opening weekend, but wait 2 weeks and you should have it to yourself.

    Not horrible for bears, but bears are a pain in the ass anywhere.

    Lots of small areas, and with any weather the elk move a lot. These elk migrate both to Jackson and down to the big ranches near Dubois.

    Lets put it this way, I have never been there where we didn't see at least a couple shooter bulls. Getting on them? Well they get hunted hard, and of course wolves, bears, mt lions and so on.

    I don't have any secrets spots as it changes all the time. Elk are not whitetails.

    I hear you about elks not being whitetails. I am lived in Ohio for 19 years and moved out west 6 years ago. Moved to wyoming 3 years ago. Before moving out here I always hunted out of a tree and shot deer at 20-30 yards with my bow. I will just head out an try to get to know the area. Thanks for the replies.. jim

    Not a problem, it's damn near all public land, so put boots on the ground and get after it.

    Kind of wierd, but I was riding my four wheeler down this draw one morning on the way back to camp and got stampeeded by a huge herd of pronghorns. Would have never thought they would be up there in the timber. I bet they have huge winter kills.

    that is a little strange. I don't know much about antelope but I didn't think they got off the plains. This winter has been extremely mild. as long as we don't get any big spring storms I am hopeful that everybody will come back strong after last year.

    I know this is a old post but was asking for a point in the right direction. A family friend has a cabin in dubois and I have never been. But am heading that way for a antelope hunt hopefully and looking for a little starting knowledge. Any help would be greatly appreciated not trying for a monster just wanting to have a good time and hopefully put some meat in the freezer

    I see antelope up high in the timber while elk hunting all the time. A couple of years ago a friend and I topped out on a high ridge after a heavy overnight snowstorm, expecting to see elk we were surprised to see a small herd of antelope with one huge buck in it. They were belly deep in snow feeding on sagebrush. I've tried to draw an antelope tag in that area for years, with no luck. But then I haven't drawn an antelope tag anywhere going on 5 years now.
