105 would be a tough hunt on the general F tag, most deer will be up high. A good friend of mine hunted antelope around Cody this past fall and seen very few deer on public land. I was there two years ago and seen very few as well, maybe later on into the season things change but early on they are still up high.
Thanks for the info! If we draw I was maybe thinking 121, goes into November. South of heart mtn. Looks interesting, anyone have any advice for that unit? Trying to get as many areas lined up as possible, never been there. Thanks!
Just wondering if it would be better there since season goes later, or hit the higher country in 105 at the end of October?
If you hit up later in Oct you stand the chance of snow in the high country and the animals moving down low.
I hiked in Heart Mnt a few years ago and did not see anything, some antelope around the base on the BLM. I assume most deer that move into Heart Mnt move down off the high country too. Im sure a few resident deer call it home with all the irrigated land surrounding it but not sure if those deer would go very far from their feed.
Thanks!! If we get a tag we will probably watch the weather and if they get snow head out. Or hunt the last week of season, not sure. Gonna be our first hunt out there.
Do know that grizzly bear are becoming an issue out there, main reason I have not hunted it yet.
Yeah, I hope we don't run into any, that's why I was kinda looking at 121, later season. That or load up on pepper spray, and be cautious I guess.
