    First off, you have picked some great country to explore. What kind of hunt are you planning? Do you intend to backpack in, or basecamp it?

    Just make sure you stay out of the Wilderness areas and be prepared for Grizzlies. Nonresidents can't hunt the wilderness areas in Wy without a guide or local resident being with you.

    Really no experience. I'm an experienced hunter in the South and Midwest (Iowa,Ill) but no backpack experience.
