Re: Region H Wyoming
Well, two days of scouting @ 9500 ft yielded about 13 bucks. Several 4x3 in the 24 inch class, one 4x4 in the 25 inch class, one 4x4 that was a possible shooter in the 24 inch class with deep forks, several 20 inch class 4x4's and one non typical shooter that was about 22 inches main frame with some cheaters bringing him to about 25 overall.
Opening day, my partner was waiting for the non typical to pop up and a fellow hunter rode his horse right through the kill zone at day brake spooking the deer. I was up higher on the mountain and spotted a small two point at day break and the big bucks didn't show. I then kicked out a 20 inch 4x4 and a bigger 4x3. I didn't see any of the shooter bucks.
Sunday morning and I made a play for the non typical. I was in a great spot for a 300 yard shot, a 20 inch 4x4 popped up and headed for the timber. Then the non typical showed his sixth sense as all I could see was his skull plate up for about 3 seconds, no shot.
It was the hottest opener I have ever seen in Western Wyoming and I decided to bag the hunt and head for home. I am hoping some cold weather will come in and make the hunting better and then maybe I will go back. This weekend I will try and fill 3 antelope tags for practice.
