Depends on where you hunt, each unit sometimes has a different opening date.

Ok, but is the Antelope season, once it is open, any weapon? I looked at the WY regs and I did not see any weapon restrictions listed.

Ive been to wyoming twice now.

Get ready to see a lot of deer, and dont pound the first 130" muley that walks by because he will look big if youve never seen one in person.

We always bow hunted. I would recommend carrying an extra lock on or 2 to save you from having to move and tweak stand locations more often than necessary.

We mostly hunted alfalfa bottoms and the deer sometimes will bed literally right off the field. So most evening stands will be close to to food source and most morning stands will probably have to be back off the field a ways to avoid tipping all your deer off.

Hard to pack so much information on here, but those are just a few quick hitters that came to mind for me.

Cool. This is 100% on my radar. I did some climbing in the Wind River range back in the summer of 2002. I have been really itching to return ever since and a Antelope hunt sounds very enticing.

I always advise getting in shape bvut for lopes and mulies, it may not be bad at all. The best hunting for goats is on relatively flat land. Mulies can vary. If it is a combination hunt, I suspect it will not be bad at all.

Where are you going and what time of year?

The advice on not shooting the first one you see may or may not be good. It would depend on what you see. If you are blind hunting for lopes, the first one you see may well be the one to shoot. If it is a guided hunt, just listen to your guide.

Much of WY is flat as a pancake. If you are bowhunting, a range finder is almost a must. This is pretty typical antelope country.

If I were looking to do this as backcountry and a DIY as possible, you think it would be feasible to arrange for pack horses just to pack me out? In other words, I'm intending to do, say, a 5 day hunt, could I arrange for pack animals to meet me at X on a certain day? If so, what do you expect that service would cost? ~$600-800?

Here is how you get all the information you need. Call Jake Clark at 307/754-4820. Tell him I sent you. He can answer every question you have about the whole hunt.

We are staying at a friends place in Atlantic City. We applied for areas 91,90, and 65. We will be gun hunting but il will also bring my bow in case the opportunity will be available. I appreciate all the help guys. I joined the gym last week so this is just one more motivation factor. I'll be running down speedgoats in no time!

1 Rangefinder is a must
2 Good set of binoculars the best you can afford 10x42 is a good size with a bino harness . I used mine all day every day I even forgot I had them on half the time .
3 A good spotting scope is a must to judge animals at long distance .
4 A good backpack or a pack frame . It's the only way to get an animal out of most places . Dragging a 300 lb muley is out of the question .
5 A small tarp or thick plastic to cut , cape and quater your animal on to keep it clean .
6 A bipod for your rifle and lots of practice at longer ranges .
7 Bring a good camera and video camera lots of beautiful country .
8 Buy doe antelope tags the meat is excellent . Skin , quarter and put on ice asap and don't let the hair get on the meat .
9 Be patient behind your binoculars and spotting scope they can hide better than you think . We shot an antelpope at 500 yds and between us and him was a small little ditch . At the shot atleast ten muledeer jumped up and took off we had no clue they were there .
