    A lot of people on here ask if I'm a trophy hunter, why don't I just shoot does. Well it's simple. In the black hills of wyo, it is illegal to harvest a doe/fawn on public land. Besides, I would much rather shoot a young buck besides an old doe that has had a few fawns in her days. An old doe can be just as tough to eat as a mature rutting buck. When the opportunity arrives, I can and do get a doe tag and harvest one for meat. But remember, some areas don't allow the harvest of does. Got to be one of the few areas out there that don't allow hunting does. I would be glad to go onto private land and shoot one but they are 95% outfitted and can't get onto the land. I would say that 90% of the people born and raised in NE Wyo are completely happy with meat hunting and the rules and regs we hunt by. Lots of meat hunters around here. The most popular hunting phrase around here is "don't pass up on the first day what you wouldn't on the last day". Lots of people live by those words around here.

    mule deer by Gillette musket man? antelope? we are b/w Gillette and buffalo mule deer hunting. public land. always nervous b/c you never know how bad the pressure was in the early season or how bad it will be when we get there. The last 2 hunts we have seen few people. hope that trend continues. Region C had more tags cut again this year, so that would hopefully equal lower hunting pressure. we are hunting the last week of the season (ends oct 20th). Accuweathers long range forcast has highs in the low 50's and lows in the 30's. Hoping they are right. That will be great hunting weather.

    gotta check my trail cam on Wisconsin public land tomorrow. have to chain and padlock it to avoid people stealing. Hope I get a few bucks on camera. will post some pictures if I do. its an older camera with avg quality. cant figure out how to set the date, so the pics will show that it is still March. LOL

    I will be between Gilette and Buffalo as well hunting antelope. I have 1 buck and 1 doe tag. I applied for deer 2nd choice but didnt draw due to the tag cuts. I was hoping to make the 10/1 opener but as I sit here listening to it rain and I have wheat to plant before I can leave I realize thats not going to happen.
