    I haven't been that direction yet this spring so I'm not sure on the buck quality in the area. The last time I fished the Big Horn around Thermop we knocked them dead using a streamer with a weighted bead head dropped from that. We were on a drift boat in Mid-August and fishing the deeper (cooler) parts of the river. I landed around 18 rainbows that day, all in the 2-5 lbs range.

Now they've cut MD tags in the unit we applied in and we probably won't draw. Go figure.

    I've decided to change my app to 73!! I've been kicking this around quite a bit and have changed it a half dozen times between 80, 75, 83 and 73. It's staying with 73 and I'm looking forward to the day draw results come out!!

    Cool!!! Good luck. Who knows, if we all draw and timing works out, maybe we can meet up out there. We will be camping and you're welcome to join us.

    Makes you feel any better we seen an great antelope off Co Rd 104(I think it was 104) last year in 73, he crossed from 75. He was over 15" and awesome mass. Good luck on the draw.

    I hope there are some nice bucks in 83 this year. I have to hope even harder that I'll draw it with only one point.

    ***Yep, with point creep and many units getting tag cuts this season, unit 83 may take more than 1PP this year to draw the tag.

    I hope your wrong TG. I may not even draw my doe tags this year. I may have to hit you up for some cow tag info in your area if there are leftovers.

    I think with a lot of these antelope tag cuts the G&F made for the upcoming season that you'll see some interesting stats when everything is posted next month. There will be a lot of leftover Type 7 cow tags and I've even thought about buying one, but the price is really ridiculous IMHO when I can get leftover antelope tags for $34 a piece. I may change my tune if there aren't any doe antelope tags available in July though, but I'll be surprised because they upped the number.

    We use to buy leftover doe antelope tags but after that harsh winter and tag cuts we are faced with either driving all the way across Wyo where the tags haven't been cut as bad or not going. We've elected to buy cow elk tags, the reduction in 3 tanks of gas and closeness to home has made us change to hunting elk instead of antelope .

    The way the elk are booming all over Wyoming at the present time that's a wise decision to try for some cows to help cut the herds back in many areas. It's great meat and I just wish the tag fees would be dropped some so that more people would take advantage of all the excess cows that need to be taken. I have close to 4000 miles for a round trip out there, so the gas cost is huge going by myself now after the other guys quit going and that money I'd spend for a cow tag goes for gas instead. Good luck on your hunt.
