Re: LR get together Speed Goat hunt... info.
I think I found what we are looking for ( with a littel help from a new member )
OK I asked around for a GOOD area with a better chance of drawing. Here's what I/we came up with.
Area 47 ( just south of Casper )
here are some quotes from a guy who has hunted it.
"The area I have hunted is within the perimeter of the loop
formed by Hwy 487 and 77. This is 60 miles due south of Casper. Most of
this area is BLM and the goats are plentiful. Not known for producing
trophies, but there are some respectable animals there. Plenty of
opportunity for the long stuff. Access is good and you shouldn't have any
problem getting equipment into the interior of the area. Wind is to be
expected so your guys should be prepared as such."
"I don't know what the draw odds for #47 are, but my friends and I have
always drawn successfully for years. Get a BLM map for Shirley Basin for
So what do y'all think.... I looked at maps of the area and it is ALL easily accessable by vehicle and there are enough roads that we can get our equipment in without haveing to carry it to far.
The season Opens Sept 25th.
Like I said this means staying in a motel or somthing, eating our etc. but I feel our chances of drawing are better and our opportunity for the majority of us conecting are better.
Gotta make a descision soon I have to have licenses in to Cheyenne by the 15th!!!
OK now for the pricing..
$195.00 for the normal application price
$295.00 for the "special" application price which increase our chance of drawing!!!!!
bascially if you pay a higher price you are essentially put into 2 drawing pools. One for the normal drawing and a second for those who pay a higher price. So we have 2 chances to get drawn. If we do not draw you get all but $10.00 back!!!
