    BLM Surface Management Maps are very handy. They don't show as much detail, but they do show private/public land. They are about $8 at plic.org. . . .

    Every hunter decides for himself what makes him happy. For me the deciding factors are the area I'm hunting and age of the buck. I would not hesitate to take a mature 3x3. Just keep in mind they...

    There's no "best unit" for your criteria (public land, 1pp draw). My suggestion is to look at a Wyoming Gazetteer, which will show the areas of the state with the most public land. From there...

    My experience has been better during a dark moon for traditional times to see game. I think deer movement is less early in the morning when there is a full moon. I do pay attention to seasons and...

    Combining areas is a bad move by the G&F. It will inevitably funnel more hunters into what little publically accessible land is available in the larger area. The public areas will get shot up quick.

    A vast majority of BLM/State land is going to be inaccessible to public hunters as the sections must have a public road slicing through them as noted above. There are very few public roads leading...

    Great point. A lot more traffic on the weekends. After the first week and during the weekdays, you should see far less people.

    Yep, last year around Sept 25 we had about 4-5" of snow in central WY. Really monkeyed up the roads and about a day was a wash for goat hunting. Since the ground was warm there was thick fog for...

    Antelope have very little growth left. Any growth that occurs between now and hunting season would be negligable to the observer. In other words, if you are eying a buck that is not quite big...

    Not much to the area, as it pretty small. The elk population is decent, so you should find elk. Lots of recreators up there that time of year. There are a few holes and pockets where one can get...
