    Wyoming Antelope w/ 10 points?

    Now that I know I was unsuccessful on Utah antelope, I'm going to try and draw in Wyoming. I've been trying to draw the last few years but haven't yet. I'm looking to pick a unit that I can draw 100% with 10 points or really close to 100%.

    A few units that I'm considering so far are 62, 67 & 68 and maybe 53. Looking for any and all opinions or information anyone is willing to share on these units. I'm all ears if there's another unit I should be looking at.

    A good mid 70" goat would be great. Of course 80"+ would be nice but that's not a make or break it #. I will probably bring both rifle and muzzleloader. I would like to take one with the muzzleloader if possible but won't hesitate to pull out the rifle if/ when needed. I would rather take a mid 70"+ with my muzzleloader than a little bit bigger one with the rifle. So terrain that is good for stalking into less than 100 yards would be nice but not a must.

    I'm probably going to be solo, so a hotel close by would be nice. Not sure that's feasible in any of these units? Or I might just bring a camper if my wife and daughter come. I'm pretty open on this part of it.

    Appreciate any thoughts or information! Thanks...

    Finding an 80”+ buck is highly probable in unit 67. Should be a good year with the mild winter we had.

    Thanks for the PM's, I do appreciate them! I'm getting ready to apply in the next couple day's. Any other thoughts out there? I'm still not sure which unit to go with? Seems like they all would be a good choice.

    You nailed it with your last sentence. There is no wrong answer. Any area requiring that many points is going to be good to great if you have the time to invest and good hunting conditions. If it comes down to a coin flip, I would think hard about listening to UH's advice. I'm not sure anyone on here does more research.
