    Public Acess

    Hello to all, new to forum. I was looking for some info on a good unit for public access. I have a group of 4 looking to try and do an antelope hunt. I have been to Wyoming twice and taken 2 mule deer on private land. We no longer have access to the private land so looking for any info. I would really take a goat; we are not looking for giants, just a decent number animals so we can have an opportunity to some respectable goats. Maybe the next time we go big but we would just like to take 1 to start.

    thanks

    I have only ever been to Gillette, I know that area has little to no public access; I am really willing to try any part of the state. Again I am not out to get a giant just a area where me and my 3 buddies could see some goats and take a decent one. We are driving from pa so we would need some place that would have a hotel witihn driving distance to the hunitng area.

    thanks

    Check out the areas between Casper and Shoshoni. Lots of public and lots of goats there. Both towns have motels.

    That'd be antelope areas #72 #73 & #75? Area # 72 has lots of tags (leftovers too) and lots of BLM ground.
    Area #72 is just south west of Casper, motels aplenty. Hope this helps.

    No problem! If you have any questions or anything just send me a message. If you end up going to that unit, let me know and I'll tell you where we hunted.

    turkey23: Eastman's MRS is super helpful for applying for antelope. It is usually in the February edition if you are a subscriber to the magazine. Considering what you are looking for , here is what I would look for using that resource. Use these steps to narrow your options:

    1. Find all units that are blue chip or green chip rated.

    2. Then narrow that to the units that have an "A" or "B" trophy class rating.

    3. Then narrow that to the units that have an "A" or "B" rating for "access".

    4. Then narrow that to units with like 85% to 100% success (which nearly all are in Wyoming).

    5. Then narrow that for units that have season dates you can draw.

    6. Finally consider the units where you have the bast chance to draw a tag. The "special" draw, if you can afford it, will usually DRASTICALLY increase your odds of drawing.
