Hunting antelope in wyoming is like shooting Buffalo at one of those game preserves. Not a challenge. Now a good Muley is a different story. My 2 cents if you want the truth.
I appreciate your reply, but that is not my style of hunting. I guess I should have been a little more specific, I have a Pronghorn buck on the wall that scores just a little less than 80" and I'll be looking for a better one. The quality of the hunt, placing my shot with surgical precision, enjoying a few brief days away from computers, television, cell phones, etc.
I drive to my hunting area enjoying the scenery along the way, camp and cook my own food. This is my vacation and I am not going to get in a big hurry to do anything!
bigbuck, I have never hunted the areas I applied for and haven't been through them for a long time. The tentative opener is the 15th. of September without looking at a calender I want to say a Wednesday and I was thinking of arriving on the Sunday before. I just didn't know whether to expect a large crowd for a mid week opener.
Please keep it coming, I want all the opinions!
