Congrats. I had applied for a unit around there that was a 100% draw at 5.5 points for the last four years. Not this year. I'm hoping we can get it next year with 6.5 points and we are not chasing a ghost.

Is that the same unit you hunted last year?

Same area less pronghorn this year on the public but lots on private so numbers may not be really way down.
If you want a guided hunt in this area for a nice buck, Spur Outfitters, Saratoga Wyoming had the big bucks on their land.
6.5 PP should get you a really nice area to hunt, lots of good areas with those PP.

Congrats, nice ram. I've hunted Wyoming several times for antelope and mule deer. It is my favorite western state.

Notice the weather change from pone day to the next.
Nice bucks! Learned a long time ago to always bring tire chains and shovel to WY!

Well we had 'em but decided going out wouldn't be too bad last week. Shovels came in handy. Going back up this weekend to get my truck out at the ranch and hunt some cow elk, if the snow cooperates. It should be mostly gone.

Default Wyoming whitetail

The season is finally winding down for us. We both have Type 3 , additional any whitetail tags for some private land we can hunt and the NF here right above town. Spouse went up on the NF this morning and rattled up this nice 3 1/2 yr old 8 pt from his bed. We are looking for meat for the freezer at this point so he was perfect.
Going back up in the morning for my hunt.
It takes about 15 minutes from the house to get to this area when the roads are good, a popular recreation area on the National Forest.
He had about a 300 yard drag to the road, but it was through the timber and down a ridge you see in the background.
The deer are pretty "fluffy" up here already, he had a beautiful cape and good body fat.

Here's some rutting rams on state land in the same area. They get pretty visible this time of the year.
Max PP might get one of you a shot at a nice DIY ram here.
These pics were taken 4 days apart.
