    I'm like you, I try to keep all those max point areas secret so no one else will figure it out. Keep up the good work...

    Good point. I actually drew unit #7. I have been putting in for it and researching it for a while. My buddy drew it 2 years ago and shot a great bull. He said there's a lot of private ground that can be difficult but you can catch them in different pockets. It's a huge unit so I'm hoping for the best.

    I'm hoping to do it without a guide and pay a trespass fee if I have too. I plan on doing a few scouting trips to the area before season starts. Also have been in touch with the BIologist for the area. Trying to do as much homework as I can. I'm hoping to put my new 6.5/284 to the test.

    The 140 VLD. I have been getting good results with it. I have a Huskemaw on my custom Savage action built rifle and have been able to reach 700 yards.

    You go take your Wyoming hunters safety course yet? I hear its a prerequisite for all women so you might want to get on that :)
