WY Antelope Unit 57 Advice
My eldest son and I burned our max. points and drew this tag. This was the year to go as he is taking a gap year before getting his masters degree. This will be his first western hunt. I have been on many but never for antelope. That said, I am looking for any help on general locations and tactics for this huge unit to find the best quality goats and have a quality experience for him. It will be with rifles. I know the north half is checker board BLM and the southern half is almost all public. I have a GPS chip. Any help would be appreciated to optimize our chances for book bucks. Thanks in advance.
"Book bucks" as in Booners?
Would love to hear about your hunt. Should be an awesome time with your son sorting through a lot of lopes to find those Booners. I have max points as well and this is one of the top units on my list. I would be hunting with bow but would still hunt during the rifle season to catch the rut.
82 inches is a B&C buck and that's a tall order but You're in a Unit that takes a lot of points so it should be a great hunt for you and your son. Safe Hunt! C
I can help you guys. PM me and I'll get back to you after Friday when I get back from vacation. I hunted it 3 years ago. You're in for a great hunt. Oil field roads everywhere though.
Thanks for the responses!
I sent you an email.
