My dad and I put in for a non-resident Wyoming Unit 102 Antelope hunt. We drew the tags (100% draw buck tag and two doe tags each) I have done quite a bit of reading and I know that much of the land is private and a lot of public land is landlocked. I will call the area biologist in a few weeks and search out any information from them. Can anyone give me any direction on accessible areas of the unit on public land? This trip will be a once in a lifetime shot for my dad so I want to gather as much info as I can before heading over.

The Bighorn Mts. make up a large part of the western side of the unit. Are there antelope hunting opportunities (as well as accessibility) in the foothills? Anyone have any directions (road systems) they would be willing to give?

Any other directional advice for the unit for walk in public access?

Would bringing a 4 wheeler be of assistance to get into areas?

Are there any landowners that publicly list their land as accessible?

Thanks in advance

Last year the pressure in 102 was extreme on the first couple days of rifle season. It made for a pretty disappointing trip but the scenery was nice. Hope your father and you have a better experience!

With only one exception (In 2019, Antelope Hunt Area 79 on the west side of the Bighorns has a type 9 license which is valid for archery hunting only) in Wyoming you don't apply for an archery OR rifle antelope licenses. Hunters just apply for an antelope license for a hunt area and if the license is drawn then a hunter can purchase an archery stamp that allows the hunter to hunt with archery equipment during the archery season. If the hunter is not successful during the archery season they can hunt with a firearm during the rifle season.

Antelope archery season in most hunt areas opens on August 15, but in Hunt Areas 1-5 and Hunt Area 17 the archery season opens on September 1.

Also, the OP asked about the western part of Antelope Hunt Area 102 that is on the Bighorn National Forest. There is one area just west of Buffalo (Hospital Hill/Hunter Mesa) that, depending on the weather prior to October 15, antelope may be found on the National Forest. Other than that small area the National Forest is not antelope habitat.

Maybe the wrong spot but can you still purchase a point for antelope through October?
