Actually, I just looked up the 2013 pref pts needed and I was thinking it only took 1 antelope point to draw 98 but it looks like 1 pt only gets me a 25% chance. It looks like I will have to look at another unit. Of course, if I get drawn for sheep somewhere, I will just go for that and leave deer and antelope for the following year. I only do one trip a year.
My first Wy antelope hunt was in 93 in 2006 and I think it would have been a great hunt if I knew 10% of what I know now. We both killed antelope but would have been completely different with good maps and better planning. Any of those units would probably be good hunts. If there is a good amount of BLM and good access and you have a good map and a gps chip its pretty hard to have a bad antelope hint in WY!
Yup, just 1 ppt. It looks like maybe 47 or 48 are the best I can draw w 1 pt, maybe 56 if I want to fight the checkerboard.
I did the same thing last week. Alot of people think that is to much money for the tag but I think the trophy quality overrides that thought. It took me 12 years to draw a Utah book Cliffs tag, A long time to wait for a tag where you might see alot of bucks but the big boys are very few and far between. Region G is rough country though and it can humble you very quickly if your not in shape.
I put in for the Region G special tag with 3 points. I see Wyoming turning into Colorado and am not going to deal with the point creep BS. I will keep putting in for units throughout the west that take 2-3 points to draw and learn them, this strategy works well and I don't have to wait 10+ years for a tag.
A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.
Shoot the best, Shoot PSE!
