    Wyoming Small Game After Antelope Hunt?

    Click Here!

    Alright guys at the risk of getting really far ahead of myself but assuming I am successful on my antelope trip to Wyoming this year and have a couple days left for the hunt what do you guys do afterwards? How is the rabbit or other small game hunting out that way? If it's worth it I wouldn't mind taking an extra shotgun or .22 and see more country while I am out there. I'm hunting Unit 74 and will be staying in Riverton.

    Hello Dabau,
    A few years ago, I took my shotgun to Wyoming to use following my antelope hunt. I did not get to use it due to getting an antelope at the very end of Sept., the grouse season had just ended. So......bought a NR fishing license, instead.
    Check the Small Game season dates to really be sure.

    I'll be hunting antelope in NE Wyoming, and hope to find time to shoot some sharptail grouse. However, it sucks that my bird dog will be at home. I've never shot a sharptail so I'm really hoping to find a few.

    We might also try some coyote hunting.

    DABAU,

    Fall fishing is great throughout Wyoming. Small game hunting is spotty at best. There is some good grouse hunting in areas. I personally would focus on predator hunting, fishing, and scouting for future other species hunts. If your hunting in mid to late September, head up to the hills and listen to a few elk bugle... catch some brook trout in almost any mountain stream, and call in a few predators. Or you can always buy a few antelope doe tags in one of the areas with leftovers... plenty of options.

    I'm looking at the same scenario and I was already planning to try to take out a couple of coyotes.

    It is not small game and it is a little twist on the topic but is it correct that a wolf is considered "predatory" in that area?
    In other words ........ game on?
