We have some units here in Colorado that you can a tag with no points. As an example. Unit 55 1st rifle either sex is no points. Weather is usually still pretty good that time of the year. What I like about the 1st rifle season is it's just for elk. No deer hunters will be hunting. No muzzleloader or bow hunters either, and you catch the end of the rut. My favorite season. If it has a drawback is it's only 5 days compared to 9 days for the other seasons.
It's harder to get deer tags here than elk. I'd pick another state for deer.
And I will make it unanimous - Welcome to BGH! These guys here are very generous and definitely go out of their way to deliver their hunting information. I have just learned of the ease of hunting in Wyoming and copy the info provided to you.
I lived on Oahu for almost 3 years. I look back and can kick myself for not getting out and hunting there. I did do a great deal of scuba diving and enjoyed that a lot... but should have done some hunting.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
