Hey everyone,

My fiance and I drew rifle tags for 58 antelope in August. I am wondering if anyone has some recommendations on what part of the unit would be the best to focus our efforts in.

I would concentrate on the area ne of Clayton on state land or the grasslands there. Rabbit ears Mt and the area south of Clayton lake state park has plenty as well. I wish I could draw now that it’s public land tag. U will have awesome hunt. Good luck.

My daughter has a tag for the same unit in two weeks. I’m pretty familiar with the unit, plenty of public land with Antelope, many of the public parcels are only one section and walk in only. Should still be a great hunt.

That is a unit I put in for as well good luck. You should have a great hunt. I have driven through the area and saw lots of antelope on public ground. I don't know a lot other than It hits all the check marks for a great DYI antelope hunt on public. One day if luck I may get to draw that tag.

Camping is very limited in the unit. There are a few options on the Kiowa ng but if u need a hotel then u should stay at the holiday motel on the nw edge of Clayton. Great hometown folks run it and u will be greeted by a towel elephant on ur bed. Only drawback is in the case ur hunting the dry cimmaron area it’s over 50 miles from nearest hotel and not the greatest roads.
