Hunting, Tags??

If you are like me! You didn't draw any hunting licenses this year. In case you haven't checked. The good news is that we are in Wyoming, and there are a lot of awesome "General" hunt areas for both Deer and Elk. In fact, I made a great shot with my bow just last year on a full velvet mule deer (in a general area near Lander)
that is now in the Pope and Young records. I have taken 3 bull elk (all 6 points), in general hunt area 28 near Lander.


Break down of my go-to general areas:     Elk -  28 and 37 are both great, as well as, 89 and 90. Map    Deer - 92 and 25 both have great opportunities; 152 and 144 have tough terrain but can produce big bucks. Map 

The great thing about these areas, is that they share the general Elk and Deer regions; this way, you can hunt both species in the same area. Also, keep in mind, when you have a general hunting license, you can hunt any of the general areas in the state. Even though the special draw tags typically provide a better chance at trophy animals and fewer hunters; you are limited to that single area that the tag was drawn for.

One other option is - left-over's If you need to fill your freezer, or if you want to hunt some Archery only elk areas; I would look at these left-over tags.

Now it's time to start scouting!!
