Re: antelope hunt
I am going to give you some homework on this, I used to hand feed everyone but they get really demanding about it.
The Bureau of Land Management has 1/1000 maps for every quadrangle in the United States west of the Mississippi river. This will help you figure out what is public and what is not.
Checkerboard public private is not public it is private. You can not use private land to access public land. Unless you have permission from the land owner. So ignore a lot of the areas in South Central Wyoming around Rawlins.
Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Texas have land owner permits. With the down swing in the economy these tags are cheaper than ever. Beware of New Mexico's 2 or 3 day season.
Even though Montana is bigger than Wyoming it has much less public land, the Areas around Miles City are exceptions.
Call the biologist in charge of antelope in the western states you want to hunt in, and ask them their thoughts. Remember this could be a BLM, State, Forest Service, or Wild Life Refuge guy.
Nevada, Arizona, and California have really premium draw tags.
