ssliger...nice! we also drew that area (party of 5), its our 3rd time in the last 8 years. so im guessing that our luck will run out soon with the drawing odds that low. my wife and a friend of mine have gotten good deer, like the ones you posted, but we are still lookin for the BIG BOYS. two years ago we chased a group of 12 bucks for 5 days trying to get shots at 2 of the bucks. these 2 where in the 185-195 class. tall heavy and wide, with well above normal tine length for that area. never did get shots on either one, but my wife took a very nice 27" 4x4 out of the group. it was the 3rd or 4th biggest buck in the group. not sure if the big boys survived the last 2 winters or last season, but if they did, they will be dandy's if they havent started down hill.
3 of us will also be hunting with bows for the first time down there...it will be interesting to say the least. i see your location is laramie, but your pic looks like house in the presidential streets of rock springs. we are all from the RS area, pm me if you are interested scouting trips when you come to town. we spend a lot of time down south during the summer, so im sure i could help out a little....probably wont show you our "honey holes" LOL but i can give you some good advise! ha ha ha.
one piece of advise is to get away from hunters....i.e. get to the places that dont always look like the best places. those two giants we pushed for a week were next to the highway that everyone blew right past trying to get to the "good places". not kidding, everyday we spotted the "2" they were no more than 800yrds off the highway, tucked up in some dry creek bed overhangs. just too many eyes and too wide open to get in for a shot. not one tree, juniper or large buck brush around them, just sagebrush and gullies.
well, good luck and maybe we'll see you this summer.....if not maybe in sept for the archery season. if i can figure out how to post a pick ill post one of my wifes deer.
