    Wyoming 38 Archery Elk, YES

    I am pumped!
    I drew a type 9 tag in Wyoming for unit 38.
    I have spent a little time in Sheridan but not much. I am really looking forward to a couple of trips this summer for scouting.
    Then I am hunting for 14 straight days.
    Any thoughts or pointers on the unit?

    Thanks!

    Valley Meats just outside of Dayton is a great meat locker I used them last year.

    Lots of campers, ATV's, deer hunters, but if you work you can get away from them and into Elk. Last year we had it all, warmth, cold, rain, for, snow, sleet (sometimes all in the same day)

    That's where my buddy who lives in Sheridan takes all his animals and it's a top notch place with excellent sanitation and pretty good pricing, as well as good turnaround time on everything he takes in there. I've been very impressed with the place.

    The taxi that work out of Valley Meats is a good guy as well. He has done a couple of euros for me, decent price and turned them around in a couple of months. I believe it is Big Bear Taxidermy, or something like that, and I think he is out of Ranchester.

    Yep, Jen on this site told me about them. I have used lockers in a bunch of states and this is one of the best if not the best I have ever used. I dropped off my Bull on Friday morning and it was ready to go Saturday morning for my ride home. Great job, nice people, reasonable prices.

    Congrats. I used to live in Sheridan and can honestly say that 38 is my favorite unit in the state. You are a lucky dude. Valley Meats is great but Big Horn Meats in Buffalo is better! I little further drive but well worth it. You should really enjoy that hunt. Take a flyrod as the North Tongue is world class for cuttties! Don't listen to the haters about the atv's and such. You can shoot a bull from the road in 38. However, your hunt will be more enjoyable if you put in more effort. The Big Horns are very popular and therefore the elk are very used to people. They won't stand and watch but they aren't super crazy about human presence either. Overall, a great hunt!

    Thanks Grizzly
    I am stoked! I have been looking over maps like crazy and have 2 trip lined up for scouting, and then a 14 day hunt.
    I hope to find a pack in area to hunt.
