Some guys that had hunted the area we where at told us the same thing, my buddy killed one around 110-115 and he said that is about as big as they get here. We were please, especially my buddy because he had never killed anything other than a whitetail.
Later in the season has its advantages for sure...trust me as opening day was a circus! We tried to hunt those hay meadow deer too, figured out that they leave a little after dark to bed then they head back down to the meadows right before sun-up...I have never seen deer do this, they basically sleep and eat in the meadows all day. Not like the whitetails and other mule deer Im used to.
Too bad Teddybear didn't see fit to answer a couple PMs I sent him about his jaded and twisted rants on his thread and in another post he put up in another thread about nobody helping him, yadayadayada! I, for one, won't miss him because I think his job in a maximum security prison here in southern MI has given him a very lousy perspective of the overall population that are out and about in this world. What is funny is that he says the whole idea of this site is to help each other, but if you read almost every post he's put up in the short time he's been on here they are very negative even with all the help offered him by all the members---just sayin!!!
Come on guys.....all Teddybear wants is your GPS coordinations to your honey hole. Hell, spending that much money for a Wyoming mule deer hunt, the state owes him.; at least he thinks they do. He's like a lot of other trollers that go on hunting sites...."tell me where to go so I can kill a big deer."
Edelweiss, is that you?

It can't be Edelweiss. There was no mention of better hunting in Europe or Africa!
I can't believe this post went on so long! I stopped reading at page 3 over a month ago. Teddy Bear go to Region G, get out of your truck and start walking. Plenty of public land and big deer. Only person to blame is yourself if unsuccessful.
Try hunting on the slopes of the Big Horn mountains. You are on National forest there and don't have to worry about getting permission. You might have to go up past the boundry a bit but there are roads that take you down lower on the slopes. There are lots of Mule deer especially if you don't mind walking a bit. Or try just below timberline on the south end of the Big Horn Mountains. Easier to get permission and if you have to pay it won't deplete your childrens inheritance. Lots of Big Mule deer on the south end of the Big Horns. Another spot to check out on you map is above Sheridan in the Burgess Junction area. Try west of the junction and to the north toward the Montana border. There are lots of good places but you just have to look a little harder. Good luck
