    I have a feeling Region G is going to have some major point creep this year. Everyone is talking about it. My nephew and his friend will be trying to burn their points there as well.

    Successfully hunted region W (unit 82) last season so I am going to build the points for the all mighty region G and in the mean time I am going to chase the bugling bull in Idaho unit 30 this year. Good luck to all who pull the G tag this year. I've chatted with Todd Graham (region G biologist) recently and I will just say that I am jealous that I am not hunting it this year. Already anxious to hear the stories!

    I had an Idaho 30 tag last year. Would have to say that is one of the most over rated tags ever. I'd take just about any limited quota area in Wyoming over 30...

    Very nice bucks cutback. I am considering burning 5 pts in G this yr. I prefer to go archery in early Sept though in hopes of beating the crowds. I will be doing backpack DIY type hunt and will try for a 4 day scouting weekend in July or Aug to get the lay of the land. Does this region have areas that lend itself to archery hunting or am I better off waiting until Sept 15? I'd like to keep late Sept, early Oct open in case I draw a rut elk tag in another state. If not G, does H lend itself better to archery deer? Thanks and good luck to those who've already figured your plan out.

    Below is a response Guy Eastman had the other day for a similar question.

    That's a good question. The bowhunt in Region G can be pretty tough, as the deer are very, very high in September and tend to hang out in the wide open basins. The other drawback is that you only have about 10 days or less to hunt the bucks in there with a bow. The rifle season in there opens on the 15th of Sept, and about the 9th or 10th the rifle hunters start clambering around those basins scouting for bucks. No doubt, the biggest deer in WY usually come out of that Region. The hunter success in Region G did increase last year by more than 12% putting it at a 5-year high, so the hunting seems to be getting a bit better each year in that Region. -G

    Personally, I think it's a coin flip between G and H. I also agree with guys comments on the bucks in the basins although, the massive influx of hunting activity, drives them off the tops, down a little lower. Good luck!
