How to Get a 4x4 for NR Hunter in WY

I am planning on hunting unit 73 in WY for my first antelope the first week of October. I fly into Denver from North Carolina 'cause its just too far to drive there and back and still have a week to hold out for a nice buck.

I would be afraid to drive on WY area 73's dirt back roads with a low-clearance 4x4 and city tires that you get from places like Hertz.

Anyone know of a way to rent or borrow a huntworthy 4x4 truck or jeep for a week of antelope hunting? Other DIY nonresident hunters must have the same problem.

I've had to rent vehicles before for fly in trips and just got a factory 4x4 truck from hertz. Beet the piss out of it and then just return it when done. They worked fine. Actually we've even got a mini van one time in northern B.C. And four byed the hell out of it. Just make sure to by the insurance they offer.

If you rent a 4x4 truck should have decent tires from them, you could always get some tire chains and take with you.

I would rethink the flyn. Its cheaper to drive if there are a couple other guys going. Whats 35 hrs? lol...Atleast you can avoid all the bs at the airport, and take turns drinking beer!

Don't drink and the other guy is flying in from wherever his company sends him during the week. My 57 year old butt will not take driving more than 10 hours a day and that makes 3 days out, 3 days back = 6 long days staring at four lanes of blacktop. No thanks.

Well for what its worth, when its so bad that you have to chain up, it realy don't matter if you have tread. They could be bald as a babys *****, the chains do the work. Tire clearance is another subject, and you can't have it all. I would say rent a full size 4x4 , bring some chains, and hope for the best.

After the draw, get on here and ask who drew the tag you got. Buddy up, then you are for sure, you won't be to alone if you get in a jam. A cell / sat. phone would be another idea.

rent a Subaru and go hunt. most of your hunting is going to be on foot a cpl miles from the road anyway.
