    Elk 120 and antelope 78

    First time going to Wyoming thinking about applying for elk in area 120. I have only 1 point but gonna try anyway wondering if its a good unit for a first timer who would be happy with any bull. Also should draw a antelope tag in area 78 I have shot one antelope only 13 inches so anything over 16 would be plenty big for me is this a good unit any info will help . Thanks

    Welcome to the forum. No offense, but a 16" antelope is pretty high expections. Especially if you've only killed one. Unit 78 took 4 points & 120 took 6 points to draw in 2012. 5 points & less 3.6% in general & 3 points or less 8.3% in special. Good Luck!

    Ok I thought 16 would be reasonable when we had a season In ND that was a pretty common size for the ones I seen but that's been a few years either way I really just want to know what I could expect to run into in that unit I don't consider myself a trophy hunter anyway. Thanks for the info hopefully I can get more mostly about the goats because unless the numbers change I should draw.

    Yea I got to thinking how big my antelope was pulled out my tape a measured him more like about 10 and a half inches not 13. Then held up what 16 would look like yea I'm sure all the veteran antelope hunters got a good laugh.

    That's alright buddy, at least you are honest & sound like a good sport! I'm not familiar with that part of the state. I've only hunted Central & Eastern Wyoming. My friend Jen or one of the other members I'm sure can help you out. Good Luck

    I think there is better units then 78. How many antelope points do you have?

    With two points in the general you should be able to draw 32, 48 or 69. Them are all really good units. If you don't mind spending the extra money for a special tag, 63 is really good. You should be able to get it in the special draw.
