    Wyoming Elk Area 100 tag numbers

    Looks like they increased to total number of tags in Elk area 100 from 150 in 2015 to a proposed 500 in 2016 (including cow tags) if I'm reading the regulations correctly . Anyone know why they increased by this much? Didn't realize the herd was big enough to support this many...

    Elk Type 4 tag / Area 24- Green Mtn

    Anyone know why the Type 4 cow tag has such a low success rate in Elk area 24? Looks like 16.3% for 2013 and 28.6% for 2012. Do they migrate off the mountain into a different unit? I don't actually have a tag, but am looking at different type 4 tag success rates and this one seemed low so I...

    Elk Refund Check

    Just received my elk refund check in the mail today. Seems like the G&F got them sent out fast this year. Good luck to all who drew Elk tags this year. Only a few month before antelope and deer results are out...good luck to everyone!

    Antelope Hunt Over

    Hunted south west of Casper this year and found a buck to shoot. Hunted for 8 days and did see 2 or 3 big ones, got busted trying to stalk one of them and pushed him into a neighboring unit. Most of the bigger ones were right around 70" I'm guessing. Not an expert at judging them but I...

    Boysen Reservoir / Antelope

    Hello everyone. Last year I was able to get a 63-2 tag out of the leftover pool. Many of the antelope were congregated around Pathfinder reservoir- especially on the north side of the unit. They would walk down along the sand and drink out of the lake in the same way they use a stock tank...
