Re: Wyoming

I guess I see what you guys are saying, however I've never hunted in that type of environment so to speak. I have hunted in some pretty thick stuff in the mountains for elk and mule deer though, and I'm just the type of person that has to keep moving. I have sat in a tree stand a few times first thing in the morning just to see if something comes down the game trail, but I can't make it very long, no patience, haha. Sorry if I offended you guys in any way, maybe someday I'll come to your neck of the woods and then I can see what it's all about.

And as for your chances of drawing in a certain area, the G&F website actually lists a breakdown for non-residents hunters. You may already know this, but if not I can send you the link if you'd like.

Re: Wyoming

No problem here Scott! Just yanking your chain a little, LOL! Actually when I started hunting here in Michigan I could sit from before daylight until after dark and only get up once or twice to take a peepee. As I got older it became much more difficult to the point now at 63 I only stay on stand a couple hours in the AM and PM. Wyoming is actually what ruined me for hunting here because I have hunted out there most years since the mid 90s and we cover some territory to find the animals and do mostly spot and stalk which has become by far my favorite way of hunting!

Re: Wyoming

Unit 32 has plenty of public land and lots of goats. I've drawn twice with no points. Got doe tags as well as buck tags. Had the whole place almost to ourselves after the first weekend.

There are a couple ranches with walk in access [you can drive a truck on the roads. No ATVs]. Permission slips on F&G website. I seem to remember "Muddy Mountain" being the name of one of them.

I will probably be heading there this year again and then on to Colorado for elk and deer. I drive out from Maryland and camp on public ground. If you would like some more specific info or maybe hookup in Wyoming send me a PM.

Re: Wyoming

Scott, no offense taken. I actually think I will like the spot and stalk method tons better than sitting all day. I like scouting whitetails better than hunting them.

Shimoda, I will let you know what units I put in for. We are probably going to bypass that first weekend also to avoid the crowds.

Re: Wyoming

Yotebuster---Both of those units have two different hunts. Did you put in for Type 1 or Type 2 in them? If you 3 applied as a party, you will only go into the draw with 1.66 PPs. Last year those with <3 PPs got a tag in 47-1 and those who had 2 had a 82.61% chance at drawing. Those with <2 PPs got a tag in 47-2 and then with 1PP it went down to a 27.78% chance at drawing the tag. That means you have a good chance at the tag in that one, but basically none in the other if the same thing happens this year. As far as 32-1 as a second choice, you are probably out of luck if you put in for it because last year there were 158 first choice applicants and there were only 39 tags available. However, if you put 32-2 as your second choice, you do have a chance since last year there were no first choice applicants in the random draw, but 182 second choice people applied for the 70 tags available for a 38.4% chance at a tag. In case you want to change your mind on what you applied for, you have until June 3 to go online and follow the directions to change/modify or completely withdraw your applications. PS: I hope you are aware that PPs have no bearing in the second choice you put in for. All second choice applicants go into the drawing equal for any tags left after the first choice applicants are drawn, regardless of how many PPs they have. Good luck on whatever you decide on!

Re: Wyoming

I just filled out my application today. It looks like there is no longer a hunt 32-2. I assume that tags from hunts 1&2 have been combined?
Too bad, I liked the odds on 32-2 and want to hunt a little later on my way to elk camp.
