Region G Wyoming Recommendations
So despite all of the doom and gloom news about how bad the herd is doing in western Wyoming I have 3 pts and plan on hunting up there this fall. This will be my first time having a tag for Wyoming deer. I have scouted a few areas with a friend years ago and found some great bucks before the season started in 143 but they were in areas fairly close to roads (within 3 miles). When my buddy came back to hunt they were nowhere to be found and the hunting pressure was rediculous! Only turned up small 22-24 inchers. If anyone has any recommendations as to some good areas with good deer densities that are remote enough to get away from the majority of other hunters I would love to hear it. I will be backpacking and I am not opposed to 7-9 miles. Not looking for any special spots just general drainages that hold good some mature deer. Based on maps it looks like the Greys 144 has some of the most remote areas? Thanks in advance for your generous info.
I hunted Region G in the fall of 2011. I literally saw 1 and I mean (1) buck over 170". The buck was not a mature buck either. We hunted hard for a week with an outfitter in a very well known area and it was super tough. I hunted right around the greys river area. Good thing is this year the snow was much less, so the deer should rebound every so slightly.
I hunted region G in 2011 also. Scouted one week before season and hunted the whole season. Saw way more moose than shootable bucks. Didn't find one I liked so came back to PA. alone. Lots of beautiful area to hunt. I was not overrun with hunters nor game but would go again if I could. You will not have a problem finding deer if you go 7miles. Good luck.
