Meeteetse area elk infoContributors to this thread:
My buddy and I are starting to look pretty hard at where to burn our Wyoming points in the next year or two. In addition to the "usual" spots, I stumbled upon a possible private land opportunity between Meeteetse and Thermopolis. It seems that lots of elk show up there in the fall, but I was hoping someone familiar with that area might have some information on what kind of elk numbers are usually around during the archery season. PM is fine. Thanks for any help.
Be real careful areas 63 and 64 have early rifle seasons for cow/calf elk on private lands. I'd hate to see someone burn points to only find out there are a bunch of rifle hunters out there.
Thanks Jeff. This particular property gets virtually no pressure. My main concern is that there are enough elk there in September for a quality bowhunting experience.
I hunted southwest of Meeteetse at Wood River for deer a couple of years ago mid September. The ranch was at about 8k. Although there were a few elk, I was glad I was not hunting them there at that time. At higher elevations they were into them though. A little later and the ranch gets a boodle of nice bulls.
