    Unit 34 NM Elk

    That sounds good. We might have Arizona plates by then. We will be in a White F-350 and a outdoors RV toy hauler.

    Wyoming outfitter, landowner, DIY battle!

    Jimss, Would you please share which High demand units have no NR tags because they all go to land owners first?

    Unit 34 NM Elk

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. I really enjoy traveling to new places and this will be my first year of hunting while retired. I lack the patience it takes to be a true trophy hunter. I have killed several 320 bulls that measure 280". I see that the success rates run between 50-60% so...

    Unit 34 NM Elk

    Just found out that I drew the Muzzleloader tag for unit 34 in New Mexico. I found the tread from last year and looks like guys did well and had fun. Anyone care to share their experiences with me? I currently live in Oregon but I am retiring next month and moving to Arizona. I will get to make...

    First time Mule Deer Hunting in Utah

    I drew a popular unit a few years ago. The roads were crowded but if you hiked over a ridge it was not bad at all. Our hunt was the early season that was only 5 days so skipping opening weekend was not practical. The crowds did get smaller through out the hunt.

    Wyoming deer/antelope combo?

    According to gohunt it is a good unit. I suspect they are right, it takes 7 points to draw

    Wyoming deer/antelope combo?

    Glass for muleys early and late and chase antelope mid day. It can be done. With two weeks to hunt I think you could do both. I would hunt the deer first. When you get wore out the antelope days will feel like a day off.

    Burned area

    The area we deer hunted last year was scorched two years ago. We found some deer in the area but no elk. There were lots of elk hunters too. I asked a elk hunter why there were so many elk hunters in a area that seemed to have no elk. He told me the area was good before the burn but they had...

    Colorado point creep survey

    yes, I had 13 and my buddy had 12. When we checked the draw report 13 was 100%, there were a few people with 12 that did not get a tag

    Colorado point creep survey

    The unit I applied for took 13 points to be 100% as a NR. We averaged 12 and got lucky. This unit took 7 points last year for the 3rd season hunt so it jumped 6 points. We had a fun hunt but with no weather we did not find the better bucks. Killed a 160ish buck on my 5th day in the unit. I can...

    Wyoming Elk Unit 98

    Thanks Terminator, my buddy that had the tag wants to do the hunt again. I will share your story and which guide you used. You are right about it being difficult hunting 98 as a non resident unguided. It can be done but it is not near the quality of hunt that you experienced. Did you guys get...

    Wyoming Elk Unit 98

    Just curious, did the guides take you up scab creek or did you go in the south side by the lodge? Do you mind sharing the name of your guide?

    Must have clothing?

    Even on early season hunts I always have my KUIU puffy hooded coat. It weighs so little that there in never a reason not to have it.
