    73 degrees here and 34 in Sheridan. I hope this trend doesn't continue. I'll be in Sheridan in 5 weeks.

    I'm mainly thinking of deer and elk farming, not necessarily birds. That doesn't concern me. They do have private pheasant hunting preserves in this state, and some also have chukar. Those aren't...

    I'm pretty sure Wyoming banned game farms many years ago. But I'm not sure if there are any other states, at least in the west.

    Well said, my thoughts exactly!

    Luckily for me, game farms are illegal here in Washington state. One of the only things I like about living here!

    This may have already been covered in this thread, but I didn't read all of it. Do the deer tags and antelope tags get mailed out separately? I ask because yesterday I received my two type 6 antelope...

    Not my unit. Two hours later less than 30 tags have been sold. There are still over 300 available. I guess I didn't gave to get up so early this morning!

    I'm hoping we do come across some sharptail grouse while chasing antelope. Then if it works out, towards the end of our week in a Wyoming, we will buy the one day license and bring out the shotguns....

    Walking on railroad tracks will get you charged with trespassing, at least where I live.

    Thanks, perhaps we will just spend our spare time whacking coyotes then, instead of grouse. Although I see they do offer a one day bird/small game non resident license for $20. I might spend that...
  12. What license is needed for grouse in Wyoming?

    We will be hunting antelope in NE Wyoming and I'm wondering if just the conservation license is all that's required to take sharptail grouse or blue grouse. I see there is a small game/bird...

    I'll be hunting antelope in NE Wyoming, and hope to find time to shoot some sharptail grouse. However, it sucks that my bird dog will be at home. I've never shot a sharptail so I'm really hoping to...

    I'll have to start with H4350 as that is all I have, and Varget and 4895 are nearly impossible to get right now. I see Cabelas has the 150 grain Sierra's in stock.

    I'll see if I can get a hold of some of those 150 grain Sierras, and see which shoot a tighter group.

    My thought was the high ballistic coefficient of the 180 grain Sierra would work well in the wind. I could be convinced to go with 165's though. Less recoil is always a good thing. Maybe a 165 grain...
