Re: How does one get into antelope hunting?

Antelope hunting is a really fun hunt and it is very much a do-it-yourself hunt. The weather is ussally pretty good for the first couple weeks of season out here in SW Wyoming, by the end of the season you have a good chance of rain/snow/mud.

If I were to plan a hunt out here as a non resident I would pick an area with a good chance of drawing a tag that had alot of BLM/State land that was open to the public, there is alot more public land in the SW than in the SE corner. Deside what type of experience you want, camping or hotel, road trip out or fly in. If your going to draw a buck tag you might as well put in for at least one additional doe/fawn tag because they are only $50. There is a good chance if your not to picky you will have your buck tag filled before lunch on your first day. If you draw buy a BLM map for the area you draw, $4 worth of info that will make your life easier.

Long Range is great and if you have a personal goal for a long range big game kill antelope ussally allow that. I do suggest if you get a doe tag try and spot and stalk to under 100 yards before you shoot, its alot of fun and stressful at the same time.

I really like antelope hunting and would be happy to go/help anyone out in my area.

Re: How does one get into antelope hunting?

I just took my 12 year old daughter to Wyoming for a self guided antelope hunt. Like you, I asked for advice here, and was well rewarded with areas, butchers, camp sites, even maps of areas to hunt with previous success mapped out! I did all of my scouting from the internet, google earth, one game warden, and one biologist. I had never set foot in that area of Wyoming, and had only been to Wyoming twice before, ever. I highly recommend the GPS map, it makes things MUCH easier. End result: two antelope bucks in two days, then site seeing, horseback riding, and coyote hunting. Go for it.
