Where to hunt?

Me and a friend are wanting to put in for a tag to hunt speed goads in wyoming. We plan to hunt public land. Monster goats are not important to us. we would be happy with about any size buck. Any recommendations would be appreciated on what areas to put in for tags.

Usually fairly good drawing odds in Area 7.

Re: Where to hunt?

Yep, unit 7 is pretty much a 100% draw and has 20,000 acres of private land that is in the WIHA program that allows anyone to walk in and hunt the property. It also has quite a bit of Thunder Basin National Grassland and some BLM that is all open to hunting. You can stay in a motel in Newcastle, as it's only a few miles east of the unit and the eastern half of the unit is where all the land I'm talking about is located. Get on the G&F website and highlight "Public Access" over on the left side of the page and then click on Walkin Hunting Ares when that is visible. When that loads, go over on the left side and click on Weston County and enlarge Map#2 to see all the land I mentioned. Get off the main roads and do some walking and you will have a good time and kill a decent goat!

Is there a fair amount of antelope in unit 7?

Most years, there are leftover liscenses. Wasn't many left last year, but usually there are.........This tells me that there are more antelope then there are hunters applying for that particular area.

Re: Where to hunt?

What would be the possibility of paying a trespass fee in that area to get away from all the people?
Or can you just out walk everyone?

That is a possibility too. For area 7, you could call the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce. They have a list of landowners, as does the WY Game and Fish.

Some landowners book up early, I am usually booked up about a year in advance. I might possibly have an opening for 2 in area 7 though. PM me if that interests you.

But yes, if you're willing to get out and walk and get a 1/2 mile or so off the "beaten path" you'll generally have better luck. Most people I see hunting there are just driving the county roads most of the time.
