    It is hard to have a bad antelope in Wyoming as long as you have adequate access. With your points there are units with better trophy potential, but that is totally up to you. Several of those better units might require stepping up to the Special tag though. One thing I would recommend is to not hunt the opening week. Our most fun Wyoming antelope hunts have been arriving a couple weeks into the season. You have tons of antelope still to hunt and the place virtually to yourself.

    I've never been there but I want to hunt it for elk. I don't have the patience to wait 10 more years though lol. I hope you have a great hunt and I second what UH said about waiting until later vs the opener. I've only been on 1 lope hunt but I saw fewer than 10 hunters in 2 different units over a 5 day period.

    Good Luck!

    I will arrive a week after the start of the season. I wont miss all of the hunters, but the initial push should be over. I decided not to pay for the special draw, so my choices with 6 points were not as plentiful.

    Totally agree with not hunting opening week. I have always hunted late in the antelope season because I usually hunt deer too and it opens just after antelope closes. This year I'll hunt the last few days for a doe (maybe 2) antelope just before deer season starts.

    As mentioned, i'm pretty excited. My wife prefers mule deer to antelope, so I put in for a couple muley doe tags in 125. Already talked to a land owner that says if I draw to let him know and he would let me whack a couple on his place. Should be fatty's eating his alfalfa. I think I should be able to scratch out a 15" antelope out of 83. That's what I would like to hold out for. A solid representative of the species. I have a brother in law that loves hunting, but hasn't got out in yrs. He is also putting in for a couple doe tags and will go with me. If all is drawn, we should have a pile of memories.

    So u just apply for these doe tags as second choice? Whats diff between type 6 and 7?

    Keep us posted on how 83 turns out. My stepfather and I chose that unit too. I'm planning two trips up there this year to poke around and do a little scouting. Good luck!

    Type 6 and 7 are additional doe/fawn tags and a separate drawing from the type 1 and type 2 any antelope tags. No PP needed for type 6 or 7 and the draw is random.

    Well, I hope this tag is secured soon. All it is doing is costing me money waiting to find out. Yesterday I purchased a (new to me) truck. I did need it, cuz my 03 Super Duty with 253000 was a bottomless money pit. As often as it broke, I needed to replace it. The possible hunt just expedited it. I was thinking I should just rent a truck to go on the Wyoming trip to make sure I wasn't broke down somewhere between home and Wyoming (1000 ish miles each way). I found a 2014 3.5 ecoboost f-150 with 21000 on it for a heck of a deal and gave the wife my best sales pitch. We drove to Spokane (400 miles) and picked it up yesterday. Other than a few possible clothing items, I'm running out of things to buy for this trip. Come on June!!!!!
