I am going on a trip into the Bridger Teton Wilderness area up in Wyoming this fall! We are going to hunt the Thorofare area. I am looking forward to it, it will be my second time in there, beautiful country just south of the Yellowstone boundary. My cousins live up there and are set up better than most guides, we had a blast last time (two years ago) Out of six of us we took three bulls out of there, (I did not shoot anything, but had a blast!) We saw wolves, Griz, bald eagles, moose, and elk. Looking forward to another amazing trip! Here are a few pics from our last trip.
Thank you sir! It is going to be a blast, we always have a great time! Plenty of whiskey and good people nothing like spending a week up in the mountains breathing fresh air and sitting around a camp fire shooting the **** with good people and trying to get the drop on that elusive monster bull we all dream about! The 25 mile ride in....well that leaves a little to be desired, but all part of the experience I suppose!
In Wyoming for Non-residents you have to apply for a tag in January. They then do a drawing. I have put in 3 years in a row and have drawn 2 out of 3 times. Not sure if that is normal or if I have been fortunate. Montana also has a lot of out of state hunting opportunities. Its also a draw (which is still open) and I have drawn a tag up there 5 of the last 5 years. They have a large number of non-resident tags available. You can apply on-line or submit a paper application. Good luck to you sir
Sometimes there are left-over tags in Wyoming after the main draw, you may be able to get one of them. If you apply by the deadline (nex year) you can also put in for both a bull tag and a cow tag and you can draw both. ( I did two years ago, the tags were in different units, but I did draw them both)
I am not hunting with an outfitter. My cousins are residents so they fill out some kind of paperwork with fish and game that allows me to hunt with them. In fact the last time I went they forgot to do it soonce we got in there we rode over to the warden's cabin and he hand wrote us our "permission slip" for me to be in there as long as I was hunting with family.
