Willing to pack in 5-10 miles, hoping for a chance to chase 160-180 bucks.
    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

    My wife and I hunt elk in Region F quite a bit, and I think the deer hunting is getting better and better there. I really think that as the elk population has dropped in there due to the wolves, the deer herd has certainly benefited from it. My neighbor's grandson killed a 33-inch buck that he brought over to my house one cold November night to show me last fall. A really, sweet, heavy, Wilderness buck. -G

    I should add to my question that this will be out first trip out west. Camping from Oct the 18th - 26th or so if that makes a difference. Thanks!

    I would want to find good quality animals in the upper trophy class. Is this possible without hiring and outfitter?

    Thanks!
    Trent,

    I would go for Area 96 for antelope if I were in your shoes. I saw some very nice bucks in there last October and it is close for you coming from NV. Along with that, you might consider area 130 for mule deer. It has been a bit tough out there over the past few years, but I think with this moisture the deer should do very well out there and it would make a sweet combo hunt with overlapping seasons. The hunter success is pretty high in 130 and I think a 170+ is certainly possible, with the antelope quality probably in the 78-82 inch range. No guides would be necessary in either of those area, and I'm always here to help you out if you draw. Good luck man. -G

    I agree with Guy that region F is good but it has heavy hunting pressure and is a lot of wilderness. High deer population but big bucks are far and few between that being said. There are big deer if you have a lot of time to hunt.

Considering we wouldn't get to hunt the antelope until late October, what would be our best options in that general area. Thanks!!

    Both can be pretty good deer hunts. I like the 34 hunt better just because I know it a bit better and the access is a little bit better. I know guys that have killed 180+s out of both areas, so they are very similar in trophy quality.

    As for antelope, area 73 is a pretty good hunt. I killed a nice 80+ with my bow out there a few years back. The antelope herd out there is massive, on a good year, but the access can be a bit tougher than say 74 or 75. Trophy quality is about the same a good 77-83 buck can be considered good and expected on a good 5 day hunt in that unit. When I was out there a kid from the oil field had killed an 86-incher in that unit the year previous, so it can produce monster bucks when it's good.

    Bring your warm weather gear Cobb. That is usually the week we get our first winter-like snow storm. Good luck to you. -G
