    Wyoming elk unit 38 type 9 vs 45 type 1 with archery stamp

    Both are weather dependant, the more weather, the farther down the mountain they push. Very finicky units but produce plenty of elk!

    Decided on Caliber - Now need to decide on Rifle

    Best bang for the buck is a Tikka T3 or a Savage 110. Both models I achieved MOA with little or no hand loading.

    Wyoming 30 years ago

    Holy cow, NR buck antelope was $100 in 1981, that seems a little excessive given the fact you could pick up a used Dodge Charger at the time for $500. :D :D

    Pack weight? Who weighs theirs and how much?

    This is the same pack style I run, minus the rifle scabbard. Throw in my spotter, small tripod, game bags, food and water and I bet I'm right around 22 lbs total.

    I've heard caul fat makes your meat taste like guts, did the marinate take care of that?

    Grim Odds.

    Wyoming is similar for NRs. There is a points pool where top point holders win a majority of tags. If you don't draw in the pool, you get kicked out to a random draw where points don't matter. If you draw, you lose your points in either pool.

    Need an Eastern Bird towards my slam

    Not sure where you're located but Western MT has all transplanted eastern birds. I grew up in the Flathead Valley and killed about a dozen of them. Half on public.

    Rethinking Deer Gun

    What Prerylyon said! The 280 Rem if you want to stay tradition or the 280 AI.. I have one of each. The AI can literally do everything and you can load them down or put a break on your gun if you're not liking the recoil. I have a Kimber Subalpine in 280 AI shooting a 154 grain interbond at 3050...

    What Unit in Wyoming

    I'm going to say Area 7. Most of the units that take a lot of points to draw have a ton of bulls but very few big bulls. Especially if you're used to Arizona bulls.
