    Wyoming 2014

    Hey everyone, I'm trying to plan my first Wyoming muley hunt, I got 4 points going into 2014. Want togo into g but thinking I should try something a little easier first. I have looked at Eastman's hunting journal a lot there's just so many options should i hold out for a limited quota or pick second choice easy to draw area to get my feet wet and what the heck area to head for? Any info you will give is much appreciated. Thanks!

    What kind of hunt are you looking for? Are you looking to hunt the high country? What about the low land sage and aspens?

    Would love the high country but never done it before. So I was thinking low land would be awesome also. Just to get the feel for it before I get to carried away and go to extreme and have a bad experience, if you know what I mean. I have a cousin in wright but he not sure where to send me. Thanks for any info!

    I would hold out for a LE unit. With 4 points you should be able to draw or close to being able to draw some good units. Do you have any antelope points? You could always find an antelope hunt you can draw next year to get your feet wet and scout some deer areas that interest you while you are in WY.

    Yes I do have one antelope point. Not sure where I could go to scout a limited quota area. I'll have to check it out. I hunted unit 27 last year for antelope, but not good deer country.

    I would suggest trying a 2nd choice tag first. That way you can get your feet "wet" and figure your equipment issues out. Region F has left over tags and offers the high country type of hunt (watch out for grizzlys though). There are also a few lower elevation areas to hunt in F as well.

    I have never hunted F but I have been in it. I would also not go in alone either and make sure you camp in your truck or a hard side camper.

    Thanks AT Hiker! I was wondering how to do that do I apply for a impossible unit first choice and an F tag for second so I don't loose my points? And can I get a point also the same year?

    Points only apply to your 1st choice. You can draw your 2nd choice and still get a point! Some of the general deer tags that used to be easy to draw 2nd choice are tough or impossible to draw 2nd choice now with the recent quota cuts.

    Thanks musket man! Do you think I could draw a second choice F tag? I think I could if I'm looking correctly. If so does anyone have any idea what unit to check out? Remember I'm a rookie, but want a challenge, Lol!!
