I guess I forgot to mention in my original post that it’s area 17 that I got drawn for. I’m willing to pay a trespass fee but was just wondering if someone knows a ranch we could get in so I know where to start looking. Planning to head out a week before season to do some scouting and try to find some property to hunt.

Lots of antelope but you'll need to find land to hunt on and will probably have to pay trespass fees. Not much public land.
Do not use the taxidermist in Gillette.
There is a good taxidermist in Gillette, but there is one that is terrible. I have seen antelope and mule deer that looked alike in his shop. Use someone you can trust.

Contact the Oedekoven's as they own a lot of that area. Actually contact Wyoming Game and Fish for list of ranches in area 17 that allow hunters. There will most likely be a trespass fee, and some even require a ranch hand to escort you. It is amazing how many ranchers have had livestock shot during hunting season. So just ask about the ranch rules before you get there.

I probably have a couple phone numbers at the shop, not there today. Contact Wyo Game and Fish Dept. because they will have a list of ranchers that you can contact. Some of the numbers I have may take you to the wrong guy in the family. 1-307-672-7418 will put you through to the Sheridan Game and Fish Department.

Thanks a bunch. Is there anything else I should know about hunting out there? I have the hunting regulations and read through them. Quite a bit different than here in Kentucky and just want to make sure that I don’t miss anything and get on the wrong side of the law.
