Re: My girls Wy animal-lope hunt

I believe it is where you pay a fee, work, trade, or barter.... to hunt a piece of private land.
Alot of ranchers charge to "trespass" on their land to either acsess public or hunt thier's.

Ok I gotcha. I wasn't sure when I read the word trespass. We are hoping to go shoot some goats next year. Hope we have as good of luck as the two ladies did.

You should. Plan and prep. Some public land gets hit pretty hard. Depends on where you go. Lots of walkin areas. Red Desert has some good blocks of public, and good goats. Refer to bold print

A trespass hunt is where you pay a fee to a rancher for the privilege of hunting unguided on their private property. It usually cost far less than going guided.

Re: My girls Wy animal-lope hunt

Dan,

Do you find it best to drive around and find the goats and then ask to hunt the land or did you have it lined up before you headed out? Also what would be a good price to try to settle on? Is it per guy or per gun? Here in MN I have always hunted private land or public. Only time I have had to pay to hunt was for some P-dogs in ND.

Re: My girls Wy animal-lope hunt

As WyoWinchester posted you definately need to plan in advance. First pick the general area you wish to hunt. Then call the game & fish office for that region and get a landowner list. Then start working the phone. Plan on making a lot of calls
before you actually get to talk to someone. Then most will be already booked with
repeat hunters. If you are persistent you can eventually find a place. Anyway that was my experience. The price will vary greatly from $100 - $500 or more per hunter for buck antelope. Depends on location and quality of hunting. Often doe will be free with a buck. This can be a great avenue to get a good place to hunt if you dont have preference points but expect to put forth some effort to find a place. If you happen to know someone local to the area that can help you it would probably be much easier. I had to do it the hard way this time but would expect it to be much easier next time since I now have history with this rancher. I still prefer public land if you can draw a good unit.
Hope this helps. Danny

Dan's got it. Some ranches would welcome the taking of does. Barter all the way. If you take, say, 5 does, could you take a buck?? They eat the alfalfa intended for thier cows in the winter. Lots of calls.
If you will walk, Nat'l Grassland around Gillette.
Red Desert, South of Rawlins. Just two areas.
