    Wyoming wilderness guided hunt with 10 preference points

    As mentioned above...Josh Martoglio with Trails west outfitter/shoshone lodge outfitters. If you can pull a tag for his backcountry camp unit, you should have a great wilderness hunt. You dont have max points, so im not sure what your odds are off hand, and you are a long ways from drawing the...

    pump action 12 ga versus 45-70 lever rifle for alaskan bear defense

    Shotgun. No question. Had a guide friend shoot a charging grizzly multiple times with a 45-70. 3 different charges, 3 different shots all connected in chest area. And didn't stop her immediately. This was after a full can of spray was used and she ran right through it.

    High Country Muleys 2020 who's in?

    Can't wait. Ive been watching a buck grow for 2 years. Last year he was my #1 target but disappeared like a ghost and I took my #2 buck instead. Thanks to a friend, I know for a fact he made it through the seasons and to the winter range. So my fingers are crossed he makes it through winter and...

    Outfitter for a backcountry Elk Hunt

    Fyi... the long time outfitter of Elk springs outfitters.. Al Bayer has either sold or is trying to sell that outfit. I guided for both those outfits years ago in the Frank. To find 300"+ bulls the Frank would definitely not be my choice... with your timetable id highly suggest buying points in...

    Wyoming bison

    Had a friend with the bull tag this year...He lives in Jackson, and has plenty of time. He ate his tag. That hunt has gotten worse and worse especially the past 5 years or so. They have learned to not come to the refuge until way late. This year, 0 cows were taken until the final week of January...

    Let the gov't goat slaughter begin!

    As i mentioned.. game and fish strongly opposed the park shooting goats and not letting hunters take part. And they just passed a resolution and letter to the park from the commission saying so...

    Let the gov't goat slaughter begin!

    From my talks with the main biologists when i checked my goat in, most the goats inside the park, never leave the park. The stay there all winter in deep snow etc. So the ones getting shot in the main areas inside the park are most likely ones that would never set foot into the hunting area...

    Let the gov't goat slaughter begin!

    They are trying to allow hunters to be part of this, but couldn't get any legislation passed for this year for that to happen. The game and fish has pushed hard for the national park to allow hunters to be in this. But it's not their world so they get no official say. Wygf gave away 48 new...

    2019 season

    I should also include my good friend/ roommate and his giant general tag bull taken on a solo morning hunt in the national forest. And yes that's an 11" dropper. Needless to say, our house is filling up fast. Dining room might become game room. Not a bad problem to have though

    2019 season

    Quick photo recap of my season so far. Archery mountain goat in August, connected on one of my top 3 scouted bucks in September, and my late season wilderness elk hunt ended in the bull of my dreams. All hunts wilderness, DIY. I still have a late season December Idaho bull tag that I'll try to...
