    Wyoming NR Elk 2022

    Hello ACD & welcome aboard. I hunted unit 16 about 10 years ago & had an enjoyable experience & harvested a nice bull. Yes, the Q creek has tied up a lot of land in 16 but there is enough public to have a good hunt. There are some landowners in the unit who do not like the elk & offer access.

    Lathrop & Sons Mtn. Hunter Warm boots for sale

    Yes I have. I paid for the 3D Foot Mapping Kit a few years ago & figured they could fit the boots to my feet. I was a little upset I wasn't fitted into the correct boot but apparently your feet change over the years, even as adults. I actually sent the boots back to Lathrop & Sons as they...

    Wyoming antelope advice for family hunt

    I would personally direct you to some of the units in the southwest corner of WY. Most of them can be draw with about 6 points...units 93, 94 & 100. But, who knows what will happen with the tag cuts?? Those units have plenty of public to hunt. A lot of the checkerboard stuff in 94 & 100 is...

    Unit 16 Elk Wyoming

    I drew 16 the year before it went to blue chip status. I had a great hunt. Several landowners willing to give permission for the elk hunt. Yes, definitely try the HMAs. The late hunt is just as good as the early.

    Hunting Wyoming Elk in 2021?

    I have drawn a unit 16 & a unit 51 elk tag & am building some points again. I only have 3 points & applied for a unit that takes 9 points to draw so I'm not expecting a tag.

    Hunting Solo?

    I absolutely love hunting solo & have done several solo hunts, including a backpack hunt into the high country of Colorado. However, it is sometimes nice to have someone to share the hunt with & also to have help to pack out a critter!

    Trail Cams

    I have used quite a few brands & there are several good ones but I have personally preferred Moultrie & Stealthcam. I've had great luck with both.

    Utah Antelope

    I totally agree with Jim. There are some pretty good pronghorn units in WY a nonresident can draw with 7 or less points & getting a point isn't very expensive. Wyoming has some excellent pronghorn hunting has put tons in the record books. Some units in the southwest corner that have plenty of...

    POW 2021

    It's been several years since I hunted bears on POW but I had a great time & saw lots of bears. I'd love to go back someday. POW has the highest population density of black bears in the world. I stayed at Shelter Cove Lodge in Craig. The bears will be eating grasses in the spring to turn...

    Utah Bear suggestions

    Beautiful bull. Congrats. Thanks for sharing. I love that devil tine. What weapon did you use? I have 15 elk points & am always tempted to apply for the Bookcliffs, mainly because I know it but, I keep ending up applying for some of the top tier units instead. I've seen some great bulls on...

    Antler drop

    I think this depends on so many things...animal condition, weather, location etc...I've noticed the same areas are also different from year to year. In an area I watch every year last year at least 40-60% had shed by the 2nd week of January. This year is different, only 10-15% had shed by the...

    Utah Bear suggestions

    I too have been on some deer & elk hunts on the Bookcliffs. That is one of my favorite places to go. I love it down there! Some trips I saw several bears. Other trips I saw zero. I'd sure like to see your bull from the Books if you're willing to share it.

    Utah Bear suggestions

    Thank you Jim. Perhaps I'll do the multi-season tag there. Have you personally been on a bear hunt on the Bookcliffs?

    Utah Bear suggestions

    I have 15 bear points for Utah as a resident but can't decide what unit/hunt/season to apply for. Up until last year I have only applied for points. I think I can draw just about any bear tag in Utah, aside from a couple of the multi-season hunts. I can't afford an outfitter so I'll be going...
