    DIY antelope on public or pay a trespass. I have group of three. one guy has two points he said he'd split. Not looking for a trophy but id like a buck and a doe or two. time isn't really an issue. planning 5 hunting days minimum. first time out west but i've hunted several states and did a PH apprenticeship in Africa and new Zealand. I love learning to hunt how the locals hunt wherever I go.

    Im looking at rifle hunting but wouldn't be opposed to archery if I had the right spot. ill prolly be packing my bow. Honestly I was hoping to take the trip alone but I couldn't tell my buddies no!

    You can DIY antelope in Wyoming. Look at the units in Thunder Basin Grasslands, lots of tags, easy draw, plenty of goats. You don't need to hire a guide or pay a trespass fee.

    Yep, that's where I'd go if I just wanted to hunt. With 2 points spread between the three of you (if you applied together to guarantee hunting together), you'd basically be a zero anyway. If you do decide to hunt speed goats in WY, beware of the units that are a 100% draw year in and year out. They are that way because most of the land is locked up in private, and you'll likely have to pay a trespass fee to get on. Look for a unit with decent public access and draw odds, then make sure that you have a GPS with a WY hunting chip installed. That little piece of equipment will be invaluable in making sure you know where you are, where you can hunt, and where you can't.

    One other tidbit of advice - once you hunt antelope, you'll be hooked. I'd put in for a really hard unit to draw as first choice and then an easy draw unit for my second choice. That way, when you draw your second choice, you're hunting AND earn a point in the process for future hunts. You'll want those points because after hunting antelope, you WILL be coming back!

    Actually saying they'd be zero anway by sharing those two PPs is not correct since anything they have would draw before anything lower like those with 0 PPs.
