    Zone 89 in Wyoming

    Not looking for any freebies everyone but Im just wondering what the chance of scoring on a decent muley in this zone would be? We are going to build points another year then try to draw in this area maybe.Is it hard to get away from the crowd and are there alot of 2 tracks running through it? I would love to think that I could hike in somewhere maybe and get away from people but I also know there is no wilderness in this area so that might just be impossible.Just looking for anyone else's experience's in that area. Also been eyeing 90 just to the west of it but Im not sure how much harder it would be to draw a tag there,If I remember right it is quite a bit tougher.

    Well I guess silence from everyone means either it is very good or very bad, IDK but with 4 points you should get drawn Dave. Good luck to you and drop me a line if ya would and let me know how it go's for you.

    If it were up to me, I would rather hunt Unit 90. Its got less tags, and I personally last year saw a 190+ mule deer while antelope hunting down there. It does have some rugged country that you can only walk in. That's my two bits.

    We put in for 89 this year also. We hunted unit 90 a couple years ago, but now its impossible to draw that tag again without max points.

    That is the main reason I am looking at 89. I would love to hunt in 90 but hate to wait 5 years or more to hunt it.

    Iowa..we wont be any competition for you in the draw, as we are building points again after getting the 90 tag. Should be able to draw with 4 points reg, 3 points spec. Good luck.

    Area 89 is a good area you have the sage flats and also the rattlesnake mountains alot of public land plus there are three huge ranches that allow hunting through game and fish. i have hunted antelope around there and have seen alot of big mule deer bucks drawing a tag is hard. you wont have problems with people there are only 200 deer tags allowed and it a huge area.

    There is the Rattlesnake HMA in unit 89, but in 2010 it was only open to elk, antelope and mountain lion hunting.
