    That's good the *** don't bother you because I'll probably revert back to them again out of sheer habit! I guess as far as popularity you could look at that unit from either of our perspectives and I do see where you're coming from now and see your point.

    For me to use any points a unit has to have good sized chunks of blm and access to it. I will usually take access over anything else. I dont mind walking and hunting hard but i want to have a good place to do it. 2nd choice I will deal with alot of things and Im just happy to have a tag and be hunting somewhere. Thats how I look at it!

    I'm with you on that as it makes a lot of sense when you are using PPs!

    I think 90-2 is probably more your classic antelope country-type hunt. 90-1 butts up to the Wind Rivers, so some of that country may not harbor as many goats. I'm sure either would provide a pretty good hunt though. If nothing, just hunt the strip of 90-1 closest to Hwy 191.

    I hunted 48-1 last year. It was a good hunt, and worth 4 points in my opinion. Plenty of territory to cover and a good number of goats with some good ones mixed in...especially if you have the time to hunt them. There are two WMAs out there too where access can be had. Any unit that takes points to draw harbors 80" animals...heck, some that don't require points have them too - you'll just work a lot harder to find them.

    I think any unit in Wyoming can produce an 80'' antelope. You just have a much larger area you can search for one in in a unit with lots of public land.

    Its private land that F&G has worked out a deal with the owners that allows hunting on it. Different ones can have different rules.

    +1 for the thoughts on 2nd choice units! Shoot for the stars with those valuable points, but recognize the obstacles when you just wanna hunt!

    It is actually called an HMA for Hunter Management Area. There are also ranches enrolled in the WIHA, which stands for Walkin Hunter Area and those do not require a permission slip like the HMAs do.

    Have you considered 63? I know it was only 44% last year wiyh 4 points, but it is a good unit.
