    WY Draw Odds & Numbers

    Did see a handful of point dumps, double digit points for hunts in say 3 point units. Must be using a guide or got some private access. Looked at what 2 of us applied for w special in 2021 - we would have drawn this year w special and 3 points. The regular went up another point, leaving it...

    WY 90/10 Deer/Elk/Antelope Question

    Rokslide has a thread that basically says elk/deer/antelope 90/10 possible in 2024. "On Tuesday Morning, Dr. Shaffer presented the outline of a "Grand Compromise" his subcommittee would work on and brink back to the full WWTF at the June 8-9 meeting: Eliminate the current 7,250 cap on...

    .243 Bullet Question

    Now that we have reservations for a 2023 antelope hunt, I've got an excuse to get some more powder and go burn it, but sadly, my .243 bullet selection is weak. Rifle is a 1:9 Remington 770. Leica ER 2-10x44 on there. most .243 reloading bullets are not available. Sierra isnt making the...

    Outfitter Recommendation Plz

    So, after some talking with the guys, these three 50-60-somethings have decided to stop waiting and just go outfitter-style for 2023. Anyone got any recommendations for antelope outfitters? Or maybe trespass hunt? In WY we have 3-3-2 points, no points elsewhere. Open to buying another point...

    CVA Optima Muzzleloader

    Needed a distraction :rolleyes: - picked up a CVA Optima - SS, 26 inch barrel, got the iron sight version to have that capability but will install scope. 1:28 twist. Wanted a 200 yard ML and will work to get this one there. Have 1 piece scope mount on the way for a 3-9x40 VX-2. Based on...

    Guided Cow Elk Hunt?

    Seems like a lot of stuff going on this year - hoping for 2021 antelope. 2022 was gonna go to CO for muley so buddy could get one. During course of discussing antelope adventure, he says he'd rather skip antelope/muley and do elk or caribou. Thing is we both have budgets and he doesn't want...

    Use 3 pts or wait til I hit 5 or 6 points?

    Three guys collecting points, want a decent hunt - not a trophy hunt but a 3 old buddies getting out to hunt without headaches and shooting "any" antelopes. Do we go in 2022 or wait until 2025? I haven't done the research yet - just throwing it out there.

    Less Permit Applications?

    I don't apply for a lot of states, just 1 or 2 - both application periods are now and later. Do you-all think that less folks are even going to apply for hunting this year?

    Binocular Question

    I have the 10x42 Leupold Mojave Cabelas version binocular and love it for all the uses it has back east. Then I tried it on my 2019 hunt. We had some muley does bedded at 400 yds and could see em if you knew where you were looking. Buddy had newer sub-$200 Leupolds that showed em a tad bit...

    Horn Hunter Main Beam XL

    Pack is as-new. Purchased in late 2018/early 2019 for what was supposed to be a back country hunt and ended up truck hunting. Pack was used a few times around home and a few times in CO 2019 season. Never seen meat, blood, or even dead animals - the couple times I wore it were just "walks in...

    2021 W

    After the concept of WY going to 10% and bumping Mule deer up to 550, mentioned it to a buddy and he wants to go next year. Seems like a good idea. With 2 pts should we look at units (maybe special draw) or general permits?

    Decided on Caliber - Now need to decide on Rifle

    After some consideration, thought and looking at the ammo available around here - gonna run with the 6.5 CM for a new rifle. A little research showed that with similar bullets, the 6.5 CM and 7mm-08 are basically identical out to 500 yds. I just can't readily get the 7mm-08 ammo around here -...

    Rethinking Deer Gun

    Getting tired of shooting 30-06 - I shoot 243 a lot better and ultimately shot my muley this year with the 243. What I didn't like was the buck shrugging off a high shoulder shot - 100 gr Federal blue box soft point at 215 yards. Upon cleaning him, there was a pencil-punch hole in the shoulder...

    CO Plains

    I had never been to CO but heard good stuff about a unit and decided to go. My almost 80 yo dad wanted to go and a buddy from NY. The weather turned cold while we were there - dropped from 70 to 17 during the day. Windy enough for dad to stay in tent with heater going. Got 2-4 inches of...
