Default Wyoming deer and elk

Headed up to the ranch on Tuesday for the last week of deer season.
Spouse has a whitetail tag and we both have general deer tags for a mule deer buck.
We have an old 2x3 mule deer we've been after for about 3 years now, he shows up right at end of the season for the rut.
We both have elk tags, bull and additional cow tags. Maybe a nice cow or the right bull will be hanging by end of the week.

Went up yesterday to check on the cattle round up and saw a decent buck with a doe group. What we wanted to see, pre rut is getting started.
Management bucks are on our hit list but a nice 4x4 might get taken if the right buck shows himself.

We're blessed to have good hunting rights on the 8,500 acres we manage the wildlife on.

Updates on Sunday when we get back.


Put out a trail cam on the bone pile from spouse's moose , coyotes are on the hit list now. They are furring up nicely and should be worth skinning.

It is Region J for deer, area 59 and area 6 for elk, general elk.
Open country hunting for the most part aside from the hay meadows.
There are 2 main creeks that flow through the main ranch and numerous breaks and draws.
The ranch is broken into 2 parcels, split by a couple of sections. Home place has the ranch house and hay meadows with grazing pastures and the west pasture has no improvements but a couple of creeks and a big draw.

Not sure if we'll get to both ends this week, elk season goes into Dec. for cows though. Snow limits our access later in season.

Hope you enjoyed your trip !

Our lopers will bring a nice payout if we get them at the right time. Iffy ones brought $45 last year and good ones will fetch $75 and up.
We have plenty to hunt and trap and they should be prime enough by now.

We have some bears. Had a young bear in the barn this summer , he finally moved on and got caught by WG&F about a mile away, raiding someone else's horse grain.
They took the sow quota away this year, part of the area is well known hiking area- way to the south.
I have a pic of a nice sized bear on trail cam 2 years ago in the meadows.
Have seen nice chocolate bear on adjacent land to the west pasture.

Good number of mt lions also, they have a quota though. Took a female out of the meadows year before last and saw steaming fresh tracks last year setting traps. Can't trap mt lions, have to release them.

We hunted elk for a couple of weeks in NE Wyoming (Thunder Basin National Grasslands)recently. It seemed odd, but they didn’t even have black bears in that area. Good luck on the hunt! Beautiful part of the world

I watched one video about a guy releasing a lion from a foothold trap. Let’s just say I’m not interested in that line of work….

Our trapping mentor had to release one on the ranch, he told us to get some help on the 1st one we have to try. Catch pole is ready though.

Big rain, wind and snow coming in this afternoon. Hunting may be slow this evening if we get up in time. Hoping for just a dusting of snow up that way.

You folks in Colorado hunting be aware, it could pile up later today into tonight.
