    region k or w

    Ok kinda second guessing ourselves on region f cause of the grizz we might change areas. We talked to the region k and w biologist and he said both areas would be A descent hunt. I realize that there is a lot of private in k but also a good chunk of public. Than there's the red desert area that also would be a fun hunt in the sage 82 or 100 looks good. My head is spinning! Could anyone help us out on any of these Ares? Anything would be appreciated, thanks!

    If you are good at glassing up deer, I like W. Those desert bucks can be really hard to find but they are there. Some very big deer come out of the desert every year...Especially area 84. Check out Out West Safaris website to see some of the deer in that region. I know it is limited and mainly private but some of the same deer can be found in 82 for the DIY hunter.

    I don't know every inch of the area but what I do know has pretty good road access so I'm not sure packing in would help much. There may be more remote areas there that I'm not aware of though. I have friends that live in Laramie that have started hunting that direction the last several years and had very good success. To be fair I have never hunted the South West corner so for all I know it may be better.

    131 is huge, but deer density is extremely low in the Red Desert. There are some big bucks out there, but in my opnion the density is so low and the country is so huge that its not worth the effort...82 would be a way better bet. If you were a local that spent alot of time out there then maybe... I hunted it and took a small buck on the last day.

    Are you trying to draw this 2nd choice and get a point? I would apply for Y 2nd choice and hunt the bighorns.
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    Yeah would be 2nd choice. We applied for f, but might change to something else. Do know anything about y? Could you get away from the crowd?

    I have not hunted Y but I have been thinking about it, partly to get some experience in the Bighorns for hunting elk when I draw 1 of these years. I think it gets a fair amount of pressure but there is lots of public land and good access to it in the units in the bighorns. Which is pretty good for a 2nd choice hunt! Also no wolves or grizzlys there.
