My wife is a professional photographer and shoots the wild horses in the great divide basin every year. She keeps telling me about all the elk and antelope and deer she sees. Now the photos of elk and goats yes, some decent ones. Deer mostly does and fawns. Is it worth giving it a look for a general tag?

Hey there, this was a post from me not long ago, I think it may be able to help you:
Hey there, I am new to the forum and just figured I would start out with a little positive info/story. I hunted 82(deer) with a Region W tag as a NR this year which happened to be my first deer hunting trip in Wyoming. Man was it a great experience! I have to say that I come from California(I know I know please don't club me) and although many western states do a great job at managing (some better than others and California is obviously not one) Wyoming is holding their own. All of the information I was able to ascertain from the biologist/wardens/taxidermist etc. was very accurate and helpful. My dad and I ended up seeing close to 90 bucks and had an absolute blast in the 9 days and a good snow storm. I have been reading some posts on this forum and it is always interesting how hunters can have such different experiences yet be hunting the same hills. Obviously genetics, management practices, and a million other variables play into what makes a successful hunting area regardless of the species but I truly feel and based on experience that good old hunting hard/basic hunting tactics are the key to a successful hunt regardless of whether there are 200 bucks in the hills you are hunting or 1. I hope that I can learn from all of you guys on this forum but I also hope I may be able to help those in search of answers be more successful in the field. Headed to Idaho unit 30 for archery elk this year, cant wait already!!
first time drawing the Region w tag. not new to hunting wyoming but i am looking for any imput on region w..
Drew a "W" tag also. Any suggestions appreciated.
Am in the same boat as others above, have been in W the last 2 seasons with limited success, drew it again this year, have been hunting primarly unit 82 looking to get away from the Orange Army and shoot a decent buck doesn't need to be a B&C record, again any advice would be appreciated
Hey aquahallic, I was thinking of applying for w next year, what does it look like for antelope there in 82. I think I may have points to draw antelope and then maybe region w for deer in the special draw as second choice. Maybe try to burn my deer points on 102, 101, 84, I don't know. I would like to kill two mammals with one stone. Anyways, Cheers.
Constructive input from anyone is always appreciated
I checked my points and I have 5. Next year six, so there is a chance that I could draw 53 on the special draw, maybe 59 or 112. Not 58 or 57 If Im reading it wrong, someone please tell me what Im missing
