Re: Top Wyoming Units

The Red Dessert has a ton of goats, but it has been fairly well publicized. 61 is the closest to Rawlins so you will probably see more activity. All of those areas are very large, so plan some time for scouting so you can narrow your hunt down. If you aren't looking for the biggest baddest goat out there it should be pretty easy to fill a tag in those or many other areas.

Re: Top Wyoming Units

61 is a good area but not my first choise. I think 57 is better but also tough to draw. 53 is also very good and has better draw odds. These are my choises that I aply for. Op you can pm me for info, I live in the areas mentioned and know them well.

Re: Top Wyoming Units

If those were my 5 points I would not burn them right now. The "best" units have had a few rough winters and I would wait them out until they come back. If your dead set on hunting WY this year I would either put in for the unit with the lowest draw odds(looks like 58?) with a unit like 73 or 83 that have a possibility of being drawn on a second choice(special tag) or just bypass the draw and buy a point afterwards along with a leftover tag.

Re: Top Wyoming Units

So far it seems to have been an easy winter. If spring is nice and no big blizzards come in there should be good survival. If they get good rain this summer there will be good horn growth. The overall numbers of antelope may be down but there could be some good ones there.
I think the ability to judge antelope horns is 10 times more important then the zone you hunt.
I hunt most years. It seems there are always some big ones out there.
You can save your points till everyone says it the best time or you can just go hunting.

Re: Top Wyoming Units

It has been a very light winter in the areas mentioned north of I80. With a lot of spotting you should be able to find a good goat. Last year I saw a 78 5/8 come out of there on an bow hunt. Watched the guy do it spot and stalk style, tuff to do in completly open ground. I was with a friend scouting elk, watched this guy make his sneak for 2 hours. He did an amazing job of it,realy worth watching, wish I would of had a video camera.
