In this episode, Robert Hanneman and I talk about Wyoming for antelope and mule deer. Hanneman has hunted Wyoming a fair amount and just had an awesome antelope hunt down there last year.
Wyoming is an awesome state if you want to chase antelope with both plenty of opportunity as well as a trophy. We also cover many of the misnomers about antelope trophies and the number of points required to draw a tag. we also cover some great options for those just looking to fill the freezer and have a fun hunt in Wyoming.
Tune in this Thursday as we do another podcast with Zach Bowhay of Hunt DIY on planning a DIY antelope-specific hunt. We also cover Wyoming for mule deer and some things to think about if you want to wait for the buck of a lifetime. Overall, Wyoming is a great state to apply in. With only a couple points you can have a great hunt. Within Wyoming, a true giant in any species could come from just about any unit in the state. Also, for those you who are blessed to have full seasons already, be sure to apply for your points-only starting July 1.

Take Wyoming, for example, Using goHUNT’s Filtering 2.0 tool I can map out my Wyoming Application strategy super fast and save my self a ton of time. For me, I wanted to hunt antelope mainly for meat but didn’t want to burn my points, so I use the filtering tool to see what units I can draw 100% as a second choice. I can also filter those units by the amount of public land. Combine this with checking OnX Maps and that’s how I selected where I want to hunt antelope this year. There are a ton of other things you could filter by as well from the potential size of the goat, to buck to doe ratio’s, or even season dates.
