Re: Wy antelope diy

While you may be able to find a local guide, hunting antelope isn't that difficult. what's difficult is find them on property where you have permission/access.

Antelope are prairie animals so they generally just stand in the middle of fields where you can see them. The trouble is that they can see you and if you spook them, they will go for a half mile jog like it's nothing.

In order to avoid this, when you spot them from your vehicle, drive out of sight, then stalk your way back.

Me and a buddy went to hunt antelope in WY a couple years ago and knew nothing other than what we had read on LRH. You can read all about our adventure here:

My first non-resident hunt was Wyoming Antelope years ago. Very do able. Tags get a little tighter each year it seems, purchase points in the next couple of months to help with next years draw.

Scour the Wyoming Game and Fish website. Pretty sure they publish harvest reports and draw odds for each area.

The other thing to consider is looking at the areas that have lots of public land AND you can get access to it (some of the public land is 'land locked' as it is surrounded by private land and as a result, would need a 'pass' to get across the private to get to the public land)

Re: Wy antelope diy

Enough info to focus your thinking, either in the Antelope forum, or using the google search function top right corner. Type in DIY Wyoming Antelope, Wyoming Antelope Draw odd, Wyoming Antelope points needed. The Wyoming F&G site for basic unit maps etc. A basic Delorme map of the state will get you basic land ownership ideas. Looks like you're coming quite aways. Transportation cost being what they are, booking a hunt in Alberta could be cost effective for you.
