You should check on this, it might save you some money. The prices for a rental in Denver were WAY more then my local. A few years back I went to Colorado to hunt elk. Not even a week before I was gonna head out my truck burned to the ground. A round trip flight to Denver was less than a few hundred bucks, and I still saved money renting a truck local and driving by myself 1,100 miles @ $3.50+ dollars a gallon. It was cheaper to rent a truck local then a compact car in Denver.

He will be at the mercy of the places in Denver because he has to fly in and out of there on business. It will just depend on whether he gets something there and then another one in Casper or one in Denver for the entire round trip back to the airport. Either way it's going to cost some money, plus the fuel cost, and then if he takes our advice and gets a couple good sets of chains and fasteners he will be out another $250-$300.

This past summer was good for them. Lots of does had twins that made it through, coupled with a mild winter thus far should help the numbers in the next few years if it keeps up. Just hope it helps the mulies out too.

That is true in some parts of 73. FWIW, I saw several 80+ bucks just east of Arminto after the season closed.

Re: How to Get a 4x4 for NR Hunter in WY

I hunted coyotes in New Mex a few years ago. Flew into Midland TX then drove on over to Carlsbad. There I hooked up with a local internet friend of mine and we took his lifted 3/4 ton Chevy out into the desert. I called it the cactus taxi. This was one of the best prepared off road vehicles I've ever seen. In the bed in a big tote was a couple BIG bottle jacks,tire chains, cribbing ( short pieces of 4X4 lumber), 2 horse blankets (for traction in the sand I guess)assorted tools, winch/straps. There was one cooler of water and gatorade,and one full of grub. We could have stayed out for 3 or 4 days if necessary. Never had a problem,but we had it covered.

Here's a thought. My truck is gonna be somewhere in that area anyway, you could catch a ride in and out with me?
It aint built like the (cactus taxi) or SBs (cant believe he aint showed us pics of one of the nicest BAD trucks I've seen!!) But it does come with a driver that knows the area and how to get around and out of it!!
