Re: Wyoming sheep
I'm in the same boat, I drew unit #3, to the south of you. Didn't even have all my preference points, I hit the random draw, 8 tags, 549 applicants.
No way I'm spending 7 to 9 large on guide. I've always hunted "DIY"for elk and have done pretty well. For me, finding them is the hunt. If others use an outfitter thats OK, just not for me. I hope I don't have to take a month off from work!
On the plus side, I have a few friends with experience in the area and am in the process of picking their brains for a few tips and come up with a plan.
But I'm pretty sure it will involve hitting some wild country and glassing.
I've got to admire the WY Game & Fish's plan for sheep management. You apply for years and even decades and then when you are old, overweight, and broke down they let you draw a tag.
