Re: Recommend an outfitter
You won't need to pay an outfitter for what you want. Call the Wyoming F&G Office out in Gillette and ask for the list of ranchers in antelope unit 23 that allow hunting for a fee. Then start calling them and set something up for an access fee, but make sure you find out that they have enough acreage to suit you. You should do that ASAP and lock something up. The license applications are done online on the F&G website and the last day to do that is 3/15. However, there is a ton of leftover licenses every year for that unit because it's almost all private land. Therefore, you can actually wait to buy your license and Conservation Stamp that's required when the leftover licenses go on sale in July. You will save thousands of dollars and have just as good a hunt than going with an outfitter. Most ranches will either let you camp there or you can motel it in Gillette, but if you do the latter you will want to set that in stone ASAP too.
