DIY Goat Bow Hunt in WY??

I am sure this has been asked several times. Me and 2 of my buddies are looking at doing a traditional bowhunt for speed goats in WY. This will be the first time any of us have been out west hunting. We are used to hunting white-tails her in Michigan. We have just started planning and would like to hear what you guys have to recommend on areas and seasons. We are talking about applying for the early bow only season in areas around Casper or Buffalo. We would like to get and area with a high probability of getting drawn for next fall 2009. Our plan as of now is we would drive out from Michigan and camp for a week either in a camp ground or on some public land if they allow camping. We are up for spot and stalk type hunting or sitting in blinds over watering holes. If I have left anything out please ask and if there is any tips on planning that most people forget about that would be helpful as well. We are attempting to do this on as small of a budget as we can so we are not looking for anything guided. Just mainly a fun trip with a couple friends out west. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

You can find the draw odds on the WY fish and game website. That that information and compare it with the available, public land (state and BLM) in the unit and make you decision on the availablity of public land and the draw odds.

No good drawing if you can hunt an area because it is all private land.

DIY Goat Bow Hunt in WY??

Thanks yeah we have looked into the draw odds and that on the site. I have read and reread the Non Resident hunting guide for out there. A buddy has also called out there and talked with some folks from the fish and game. I was mainly looking for some tips on the best way to hunt them in the early season and gear that is a must have. Things that guys that have been out there have said "next time I am going to do that" or "I would do this different if and when I do this again".
