Wyoming antelope for daughter

My daughter is 12 & can hunt Wyoming for the first time this year. I usually hunt unit 72 but didn't get drawn this year. I'd like to find a place to pay a trespass fee in one of the leftover tag units such as 21,22,23,25,26 or 30. I hunted 25 public ground a few years ago & would like to take her somewhere that isn't crawling with people her first western hunt if possible. I'm just wrapping up a 260 build for her to take. This is my first post on long range hunting but I've been reading & learning from this sight for a few years now. Any help is appreciated!
Thanks,mark

Ok I've decided on unit 26 or 30. Hunted 72-73 five times & 25 once so these units are new to me. Anybody know of cabins for rent in either of these units? I think my daughter would enjoy that over a hotel.

Re: Wyoming antelope for daughter

I'm not familiar with the area you're talking about. I live east of Newcastle and hunt area 7. It's about a 30 minute drive from my house and there is no real reason not to hunt from the house.

BUT:

I don't. I take a little tent and camp in the area. Right in the middle of it. I love laying awake at night and watching the stars and listening to coyotes. Even on opening day I have privacy.

If your daughter is anything like my granddaughter, she'd enjoy that much more then staying in a cabin or motel.

Just a Hint.

Oh yeah she loves to camp! Only problem is I will have to take her out of school a few days & we could fly to Casper from Missouri cheaper than driving & it takes 16 hrs each way driving if I wanted to bring my camping gear.plus with the season in October I'm little worried about weather If we camped.

Wyoming the first two weeks of Oct. is one of the best times weather wise.

Cool (not cold) nights, warm days, and dry.

Maybe I'll reconsider driving out then. I've had great success hunting public land in 72 with my dad & have always driven & camped. Nice to have everything with me that I might need & process animals myself.

Re: Wyoming antelope for daughter

I wish you well on the hunt with your daughter. I was planning on the same this year taking my wife and 12 year old daughter also. Was disappointed that we didnt draw our tags. We applied for unit 47 type 2 with 4 pps between us but didnt draw. I was also on the computer when the left over tags went on sale July 10th, 8:00 am trying to get the 63 type 2 tags that were listed but they were literally gone off the list in less than 60 seconds. That was the only unit with public land.
OK , So i'd just pay a trespass fee and hunt private but cant even find anything available there. I have called about 25 numbers on the landowner list that I got from game and fish for units 23,30, and 109 and still cant find any place to hunt antelope. Only got 2 people to answer the phone and they said that they were already full. The others wont answer the phone or return my call when I leave a message. I dont know what the deal is since I have never tried to do a trespass hunt before.
Hope that things work out better for you. really.
