    Wyoming antelope advice for family hunt

    Put in for the special tag. Check the odds on the WY game & fish website and apply for a unit that took five points to draw last year. A unit that took five points last year will have enough public for all of you to fill your tags. You won’t need to pay a trespass fee with six points in the...

    WI Approved Wolf Hunt

    Pretty good season. Glad I just bought a point. No way I would have filled a wolf tag in 2ish days. The hounds and not many other hunting opportunities I’m sure contributed to the success along with WI hunters being more tenacious than just about anywhere.

    Antelope numbers and tags issued?

    In that area last year I wondered to myself how the area was going to get to an 85%+ harvest rate based on the number of antelope and hunters I saw. Hopefully you pulled the tag on a second choice and have some points to burn for next year.

    A couple of third choice bucks. One of these days I’m going to burn the 7 points in my pocket, I swear.

    Wyoming Unit 100-6 Cow Hunt

    I wouldn’t call the area you get to hunt limited - it’s a pretty decent sized subunit. The terrain is wide open - it’s a different hunt than you’re going to have with any bull hunt you’re likely to draw. Good luck, welcome, and let us know how you do.

    WY unit 7?

    Kind of echoing what go_deep said, I think they cut a good number of tags from last year. Might what to consider that when you’re trying to figure out if you can draw it this year.

    Wyoming Antelope 73 unit

    I was in the unit mid October last year. There were definitely some decent ones around yet. They seemed to be grouping up, so the animals were a bit harder to find, but once you found them there were generally quite a few. The later you go, the more likely they are to be herded up. Might...

    WY Antelope Unit Info

    Maybe I should have been more clear. My post wasn’t about the correlation between the special draw and antelope size. It was about the fact that in the special draw, with points being equal, the special generally gets you in to units with more public land. That and the records from Carbon...

    WY Antelope Unit Info

    For the best chance at bigger bucks I’d certainly go with the special draw. Generally, you’ll get more accessible land to hunt and as just about any unit in WY can produce a trophy, the more access the better. Carbon County WY has more B&C entries than any other county in North America. My...

    2020 Family WY Antelope Hunt

    Based on what I’ve seen, I don’t think you’d have the fun family hunting experience you’re looking for in unit 21 if filling buck tags is any kind of priority. As, others have said, a doe hunt with long shot buck tags might be a good option. The best option would be to locate a trespass fee...

    Got these guys on 2nd choice tags in WY. My Dads first and my second. Excited to see what a 5+ point unit in the special draw looks like next year

    WY Antelope Unit Info

    Just noticed that WY Fish and Game posted some new info to the Hunt Planner feature on their website. They now have unit summaries which I found interesting and they also state a public land percentage for the unit along with some other new info. I found the public land percentage useful as it...
