    Wyoming Unit 71 Antelope

    Hey all, first time poster here at Eastman's. My group drew Antelope Unit 71. We have the maps we have the GPS Chip and heck have been all over Google-Earth (nearly have the unit memorized.) The question is what can a few DIY'ers expect out of this unit? We have hunted Unit 42 and Unit 29 in the past and will be willing to share some information.

    Looking forward to your responses.

    What he said above! Also, what do you mean by that question? A simple answer would be that you can expect to have fun, probably see a decent amount of animals, and also shoot a few critters if you get out and hunt properly. Short of that I don't know what to tell you with that open ended question you posed.

    I think unit 71 has alot of private prop,,there should be lopers to be had if you can find the ground to hunt on,,,I hunted unit 72 a year ago and didnt have to look very far for lopers,,,a quality buck may take more time though,,good luck.

    Thanks for the input, I'll head over to the new members section. After talking to the Casper Region Fish and Game folks last night I can confirm with Ore Hunter what I already knew, 71 is a lot of private ground but has more public than 72 but not as much as 70. Those three units all share the same herd

    Natrona County walk-in Area 7 is huge. The walk-in areas are well marked, so that might be a place to try. Depending on where the herd is moving I guess.

    Those Game and Fish guys are pretty helpful. I would hate answering phone calls all day that sound the same, but they seem to be really helpful. I have only driven through there, but regularly see antelope from the road. Well good luck.

    They must also have some pretty good spouses because I believe the phone numbers for them are mostly at their homes!

    You lost me with that post about CO when we're talking your Wyoming hunt here! Was that just mentioned to help perspective CO hunters?
