Had a great time this past week in region Y for the opening of rifle. Saw lots of deer and antelope. Lot bigger deer then in past years. The only disappointing thing was being finished deer and antelope hunting by Tuesday morning:D

Here is the mulie I took. 21-inch inside spread. 3x5 or 3x6 not sure if the small one counts
43684370


Here is a pic of the four that we took. The fork is my brothers. First time hunting mulies.

Congrats! Good looking bucks. Did you guys pack in on horses & mules or did you go in on foot?

We just hiked in to some BLM land adjacent to the bighorns. We saw three or four other deer in the same class or slightly larger all in the same area.

We picked up OTC doe antelope tags. They look very tasty:p

Congrats, sounds like you all were gutting and dragging more than you were hunting.

Congrats. That is an awesome week! I have a question, is it legal to use a bow with that same rifle tag? Are either weapons acceptable? My brother and I are wanting to do a DIY mule deer hunt, but he would like to use a rifle and I would like to use a bow. I had been considering WY Region Y. Maybe this is where we should go...

Again, congratulations. That looks like a great hunt!

You can use a bow, but you are required to purchase an archery stamp ($30). What I've done in the past is hunted Region D the last 3 days of September with a bow. It is an excellant scouting oppurtunity while hunting. Then when rifle opened on October 1st we took our rifles out. Do you & your brother have any points? Also I believe a crossbow is legal for anyone.

In region Y, rifle opens Oct. 15th.

Good point DaveZ. Depending on the region, rifle could open on Oct. 1st or 15th.

DaveZ, How was the weather up there? Did you get any snow?

There was some snow that fell in the higher elevations, but nothing at the base.

We talked to a FG rep and he said the extremely dry conditions, even in the mountains, may have played a roll in pushing some deer down earlier than normal.

That worked out good for you guys! You hunting whitetails now? Pre rut is just now kicking in here. Muzzleloader opens this Saturday. Looking forward to that, been bowhunting. killed some does, but haven't had any big bucks in range yet.
