    You can expect just about everything by Oct. 1st. We are there every year the first week in August and last year we got hailed on with an inch of pea gravel size hail to show for it at the end. ...

    I'm probably the opposite of my on this forum. I've been in the PP game for a dozen years and have points in 4 states. I want to burn them ASAP although it' going to take some time. Reason being? ...

    I have a Big Agnes pad, but for the life of me, can't remember the model. It's 2.5-3" thick when inflated and beats my old .75" thick Thermarest. Never slept better in the backcountry (sleeping...

    Lots of roads in that unit (or so I've been told - never hunted there). With a good dose of scouting and some luck, you should be able to better your 320. No guarantee, but definitely possible.

    At least NV sends you a letter. You have to actually check the draw results in OK (my home state). One of these days, I'll draw that darn Witchita Mtns. hunt!!

    I have 4 points for sheep and 2 for goats. Not sure that I want to drop $150 each year for the likely guarantee that I'll never draw with such poor odds. MT just became as bad as WY, AZ, or ID in...

    Due to windy conditions last year, I used a 180-grain Barnes TSX out of my Sako .300, and there was minimal meat damage when shooting them behind the shoulder. Just about any bullet weight is going...

    Me too...banking points but will just buy a point later this summer. Maybe pick up a left over tag if none of my other plans pan out. Antelope steaks are hard to beat!

    WapitiBob is right...squirrel away as many of those doe tags as you can. If you're flying out from FL and have a case of the itchy trigger finger on day 1 of your hunt, it may be a long hunt. Might...

    I would venture that mtn goat hunts are probably not much harder than a moose hunt. The difficulty is in getting to the goats / getting out a moose. Two totally different problems well worth...

    The answer to your question can be summed up in one word "BIG". If you haven't hunted elk, then you will be amazed at their size if you are lucky enough to get one down. Don't underestimate how...

    MM is right....you won't realize just how much work an elk is until you have one down. Especially so if this is your first go at it. Be careful you don't underestimate just how difficult it will be...

    I don't think it would matter when you hunted after the first couple weekends. You'll probably have the unit pretty much to yourself as the resident hunters will have already whacked their animals....

    It will be a DIY hunt...not this fall, but probably 2015 or 2016 at the latest. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears. I have several units that my eyes are on. PM me if you'd rather.

    I think 90-2 is probably more your classic antelope country-type hunt. 90-1 butts up to the Wind Rivers, so some of that country may not harbor as many goats. I'm sure either would provide a pretty...

    If you take care of the antelope (shoot them when they're calm / cool down the meat immediately), they are far and away better than mule deer IMO. Cool looking mount, much easier hunt, and, on...
