    Just starting to look at Wyoming in 2018/2019

    Me and my hunting buddy are starting to look at Pronghorn hunting in Wyoming for either next year or the year after. We may take a lay of the land, scouting, vacation with the wives, whatever you want to call it, trip next year and hunt the year after. I guess my general questions would be:
    Is it worth it to put in for the preference points?
    If we do take a 'family vacation' next year and look around while we're out there ("Honestly, honey, I brought the binoculars and spotting scope so you can see (pick a tourist destination) better!!") what would regulars in Wyoming recommend we look at or who would we talk to while we're out there? Find a DNR office and talk to them, particularly helpful hunting shops, etc?
    We just started looking at the information online this last week, so any guidance is appreciated.
    (I would be driving from Georgia, my buddy from NE Ohio.)

    Thanks
    Niko

    Short answer would be yes definitely buy preference points, for the small cost it's definitely worth it.

    It potentially allows for options in the future for better units (more public land)

    As already stated buy points. Just getting a draw unit that requires a point or two puts you in much better units. I would also suggest looking at the special draw but my goals may be different than yours.

    With the number of PP you'll have by draw time I would look around the NE corner and the SC and SE part of the state. Maybe the areas in 40's -50's.
    Look over the drawing odds to see which area can be drawn with 2 PP and go look at them.
    Early in June gets you fawns to look at but bucks will be short then, it is not as touristy around in June. May see some snow too.
    You can spend a week in Wyoming and pretty much circle the state and see everything. Yellowstone adds another week.

    I don't have anything to offer currently, but I'll be in unit 1 this fall for my first western, trip coming from TN. If interested, pm me in mid- October and I'll tell you what I learned...
