    If you have lansdowner contacts in those units, why not ask them? Most will be up front as to their properties. 1 and 3 are not really in the prime antelope country like 20 is. I'd look into the latter as my first choice if you can get on private property.

    Out of those units I would choose 20 because it has the most public land for plan B if things happened to fall through with the private land.

    I guess im skeptical of landowners, being from Ohio, any landowner out here will talk up his land.

    I'll take what they say just wanted opinions. good to know that many are trustworthy! thanks

    Looking seriously at unit 20 now. thanks everyone

    Well having less than good luck contacting landowners. many are full and others I just left a bunch of voicemails. I did talk to an outfitter who suggested units 16 and 22- he said there is good public there but WYFG says its limited access...more homework time

    16 has some public land but the antelope are mostly on private land from what I have seen.

    20 will have lots of leftover tags so if you dont get things figured out by the draw you can always buy a leftover tag later. Take a look at this link, the preview maps will give you a good idea of the public land in each unit. http://www.mytopo.com/products/hunt-...e.cfm?state=WY

    So I was looking for a second choice in units 11 and 9. 11 is harder to draw but still doable, 9 is easy draw second choice. They both have a ton of walk in areas.

    What am wondering is why the harvest rates are so low? NR's had about 50% success last year. Residents however, were over 90 % any thoughts?
