    ***If the draw stays like it was this year, you should have no problem drawing F as a second choice and keeping your PPs.

    Things to keep in mind for region F, most of the areas that are mountainous contain wilderness which a non resident cannot hunt without an outfitter or resident guide. Also the mountainous areas contains grizzly's and wolves. There is tons of public land in 121,122,124. A lot of the deer in the lower elevation reside on private property. It would definitely be a challenging hunt out in the blm land in 124, I have seen some decent bucks out by Burlington. I would send Huntwyodon a PM for advice, he has hunted region F a lot. I have spent quite a bit of time in 124 so I have some places in mind if you draw.

    F had leftover tags last year so you should easily draw it 2nd choice. If you look at the stats for the random draw you can see what could be drawn 2nd choice last year. Also if you look up the units on mytopo.com you can get a good idea of the public land in each unit.

    124 also has quite a few acres of WIHA private land areas you can hunt without having to obtain permission and the season is in November with the rut coming on fast.

    F does have a lot of wilderness in the upper elevations, but F is also a huge area as well. Before I considered F I would seriously consider the grizzly issue (wolfs too) but them grizz's are no joke.

    Yellowstone is also nearby and a must stop, along with Bison burger at Irma in Cody.

    Yeah I'm thinking about those grizzlys! The lower country would be ok though right like north and south of Cody? Those bison burgers sound very good!

    Yea, the far western units within F (or the ones that fall in the National Forest area) are the main grizzly habitats. They do come down in to the lower BLM lands West of Cody (even some come in town). 2 years ago I was camping just NW of Cody, awoke the next morning and went for a short hike, short because I cut a fresh grizzly track...this was in late Sept and it was pretty warm out.

    Im sure a grizz could make his way east towards the Big Horns, but I wouldn't worry about that...if you ran into one in the eastern units in F then you just have bad luck anyways. However, I do not know much about those units either except for the deer numbers are supposed to be low, but plenty of land to hunt on.

    Thanks I'll have to do a little more research on the stuff south and north of Cody, don't think I want to tangle with the grizz!! Has anyone hunted around Cody in the past couple years? We're the deer numbers ok? I've also heard there not real good, but would have lots of land to roam anyway.

    I hunted antelope unit 80 last year and seen some decent mulies to the north, but It was in the limited quota deer area. Also had a grizz track in our trail on our way back to the truck that wasn't there before. They are coming lower in that area a local told me.
