You boys are making me nervous! Tell me if I am wrong though, when I look at a BLM land for the newly constructed Unit 38, I see block areas of public land right off some main highways. Can I not just park the truck, get out and hunt these areas? I understand that some of the public areas are landlocked by all private land, but there does seem to be some opportunities to hunt public land off some of the main highways.
Yes, those are the ones I hunted last year. We found driveways to park so we were not just sitting on the side of the highway. What the boys are discussing is that there may be more people hunting those spots this year... hope not.
I can't tell you guys how helpful y'all have been! I plan on de boning the meat and packing it in a cooler, checking it in on the plane and bringing it home. However, I can't have any ice or dry ice in the cooler when I get it on the plane. Do you guys have any good tips on keeping the meet frozen/cold enough for travel?
I'm sure there are others that fly with meat that can offer you better advice...
I talked to a processor near Wheatland last year just to get an idea of how it would work logistically if we were to fly. They told me that they would process our meat and have it packed into our coolers, wrapped, in time for our flight departure. At which point we would check them as extra luggage. I'm sure that would be over $100 per cooler. But still probably cheaper than shipping.

Well, I received my BLM maps this week, does the whole 52 mile stretch of HWY 34 hold Antelope? I notice there are some terrain changes as you head further from the 287.
Most of it does, the parts that hold the least is through Sybille canyon.
Me and a buddy made our 1st trip to WY 3 years ago and hunted Unit 39. Which I'm guessing is now part of the newly formed Unit 38. We found a decent size chunk of BLM, camped out, filled all 5 tags, and were gone in less than 3 days. It was a blast. Just bought another pref pt. Hoping to get back to WY in a few years.
