    WYOMING DEER Region Y,C,R, or D??? *Family Hunt*

    Hey guys..looking to do a deer hunt in Wyoming 2019 with my two teenage sons. I?ve done quite a bit of research and called biologists in 3 of the 4 Regions. Here?s some ideas I have and you guys can comment or Pm me: Hunt region Y south big horn area in units 30,33,163..(I would pair this hunt with an antelope buck or doe tag) I?ve heard there?s good numbers of deer but tons of pressure. 2. Region R decent deer numbers, more public land which perhaps means it?s easier to get away from other hunters, 3. Region D Unit 79 which is Limited Entry unit, I?ve heard the deer numbers are ok but my concern would Be hunting pressure from cow elk hunters, etc. 4. Region C Supposed to be tons of deer but not much public land. We aren?t trophy hunters just want to have a quality experience and fill 3 buck tags in a week. I keep thinking the Limited Entry unit 79 is the best bet but then I think general region hunts in Y or R could be about the same Hunt. Has anyone hunted these areas or have any experience?

    Do you all have a preference point or two?

    I wouldn't worry about pressure in 79. I was one of those cow elk hunters last year, and only saw one deer hunter and a group of moose hunters outside of their trucks. There is a fair amount of road traffic, but nothing like over in 75 (general).

    Having said that, we saw only a handful of deer while we were there. But like I said, we were after elk.

    Good points LCH, most deer hunters and cow elk hunters are in different types of terrain, but not always.

    There are only 200 cow tags in area 12. That doesn't qualify as a lot of pressure.
