Re: Mule deer in Campbell county, Wyoming?

Thanks top, I have changed our plans after talking to the biologists out there and some of the ranchers. Since it is going to be a first for us we have decided to put in for pronghorn in a high success area. I have a trespass fee set up once we draw. Since we are not putting in for deer we are just going to buy a point later so we can start planning on a better area with more quality public land available. We already made some reservations in gillette. Thanks again for the assistance.

Re: Mule deer in Campbell county, Wyoming?

That sounds like a great plan and a very good way to get your feet wet out there. Pronghorn are fun to hunt and there are lots of them out there right now. That area is quite different from where I'm going to suggest that you do some homework for your deer hunt. Take a look at Region Y and it probably won't even take a PP to draw your tag. There is a ton of public land (National Forest up north and BLM further south) on the west side of most of the units from the Montana line down through the Big Horns all the way to the couple smaller units at the south end. Elevations will vary from around 5,000' to almost 10,000' with great deer habitat pretty much everywhere along the whole east side of the Big Horns.

Our group of four got our tags and are set up to hunt with a tresspass fee during the first week of October south of Gillette. Should we put in for PP on Deer now or just try and put in for the draw next year without one?

I have also been considering Region C: but after doing some research it sounds like Region Y: area 28 might be where I'm headed. It is Southern part of the Big Horns. I would be interested in any opinions or advice anyone may have.

If you're going to get a deer tag for Region Y, your best bet is to go way down west and southwest of Kaycee in units 32, 33, and 163. Unit 28 doesn't have enough public land and/or deer to do a good DIY hunt there.

Okay. I was looking at a cabin there (28) and was planning on hunting in the forest service area in the big horn mountains. First time out west, is this not a good idea?

Trust me on this one! I've been hunting out there since 1994 and the mountain areas like you're talking about are more for elk and moose. The better deer hunting and terrain to hunt them in is down where I mentioned earlier west of kaycee over toward Barnum!
