I have been planning to burn my WY points in 2018 for a few years now. A few years ago, I was set on 45, then the past few years I was planning on 16-2, but to do it during archery season... might not draw 16-2 with 10 points, in either regular or special. I just don?t feel all that confident in either of those options at this point. I would prefer to do this archery, but like the idea that I can come back with a rifle if need be.... although if I found the right type 9 option was available, I would go that route.

So the past couple weeks, I have been thinking about maybe I can do a hunt with trespass fee as an option. Maybe in unit 7? Was hoping someone knew of a decent option? I?m not fully opposed to going with guides, but would prefer to do without a guide if I can make it work. I am experienced and have killed a few bulls with my bow, so I am trying to find an option that would give me a ?chance? at hunting bigger bulls. Going home without an elk is ok too, and I will hold out for a nice bull.

I can keep waiting, but would prefer over time to hunt general or a unit I can draw every 3 to 4 years and rotate it with a few other states. Anybody have any brilliant ideas? Or a lead where I can do a trespass hunt somewhere?

Appreciate the time, merry Christmas.

There are some guys on MM that have done trespass hunts in 7; I forget who they are but they paid a reasonable amount. There are a cpl landowners that are part of the access yes program as well.

I hunted unit 7 in 2014 on private property with family member of property owner. Had a great time and would share info if you are willing to pay a fee. Archery hunt probably not a good choice as the bulls only move onto property after the rut.

The unit 7 archery hunt I went on in 2009 was probably the most fun elk hunt I've ever been on. We hunted on private land the last week of September with a very reasonably priced outfitter. I didn't end up getting a bull during the archery hunt and I was able to go back out there with them on some lower elevation property for the last few days of the season. My dad and I hope to go back out there in the next couple of years when we draw again.
