    First Time to Wyoming for Antelope / Deer?

    I am trying to go to Wyoming to mainly hunt Antelope but was wondering if it is also possable to hunt deer at same time and where would be a good unit for both? There is two of us and we both have a point for Antelope but none for deer?

    Depends on the units. Usually Antelope opens a lot earlier than deer and closes just before deer opens. I've done it by hunting the end of the goat season and then the opening of deer, realizing that the goats have been hunted for about a month and can be a little shittish and the best ones already in someones freezer.

    According to the latest 2012 hunting booklet, region 7 (antelope) has difficult public access. For deer its area 8 (Region M).

    I see it says that it is difficult public access but when I looked up the walk in access there seems to be alot of that? Are they not a good place to go for Antelope? I thinking this first year we mite just try Antelope only and put in for doe tags also?

    Yep...I totally agree and every year I go, I buy 2 extra doe tags. My wife likes antelope better than deer!

    Are they Whitetail or Mule deer in that area? Would like to get a antelope buck but doesn't have to be a Trophy! I heard it is best to put a trophy area for first choice and for second put a area that you have good odds of drawing so you can build up points?

    Definitley put in for a top unit for your first choice and follow up with an easy draw for your second. You never know you might get lucky on your first choice. Good luck.
