Wyoming or Bust

Less than 3 weeks until I fire up the Chevy Avelanche and head toward Casper Wyoming. Hunting area 25 October 1-3 with SNS Outfitters but I thought I'd get there a few days early and look around some. Had it planned since the spring but I'm just now starting to get excited. Starting to get gear together, shooting the rifles, buying new gear that I need but don't have, etc. I think the anticipation is a big part of the hunt.

I've got the Savage 111 LRH 6.5-284 Norma shooting sub-1/2 MOA groups out to 1000 yards. Taking a couple of extra long range guns as backups as well as some varmint calibers for coyotes and prairie dogs. That's why I have to drive instead of fly. They probably woundn't let me on the plane with a dozen guns and a thousand rounds of ammo.

I drew one buck antelope tag and bought 2 doe tags so I should be able to do a little long range shooting while I'm there. I'm not looking for a record book buck, just a good representitive head in the 14" area. Hoping to put him on the wall with the whitetails and muleys.

If any of you live in the Casper area and want to get together for a cup of coffee or glass of sweet ice tea, give me a shout. We can swap lies and put faces on some of the guys here on the forum.

Wish me luck.

Re: Wyoming or Bust

Just remember the crosswind. It almost cost me a goat a few weeks ago when he ran and stopped on me. I forgot to compensate in the heat of the moment. Got him in the neck instead of behind the shoulder. Had he been facing the other direction, it would have been guts.

Learn from my mistake and know the drift in addition to the drop.

Good luck, it's a fun hunt.

Re: Wyoming or Bust

Antelope hunting is as much fun as a guy can have. Wyoming is a great corner of the world to do it in. SNS is a great outfit to go with. I turned my rifle over to the airlines once, and couldn't stand the stress, I only drive anymore also. Have a great trip.

Guess I'll have to bring a few jugs of Milos tea. That and a case of Sun drop. Some things you just can't do without.
