I found funding for this hunt immediately before the application deadline, so I had no time to do research. I am hoping that I didn't pick an area that can't be hunted, because I got drawn!!!
My brother and I will be hunting; our first Western hunt ever (we are 60 and 58 years old, living in Tennessee).
We are trying to decide on the type of hunting/sleeping arrangements we want, ranging from motel all the way to van/tent camping with the possibility of borrowing a SMALL RV also. Much of the decision will be based upon cost and weather.
Area 50 is 30-50 mi. W of Laramie. If anyone can give me information on what sort of weather to expect, both in temperature range and liklihood of rain/snow, I'd really appreciate it. The season is from mid-Sept until late Oct. We would likely go out before opening for scouting, so would hope to be finished before first Oct.
The other question that is open is the hunting opportunities on that area. I plan to call WY F&G next week to check on ranchers who allow hunting, but I'd like to know anything else that might apply to that area. I did read on my license info that there are areas that require a guide, which we can't afford, so if that area happens to be one of those, then our hunt is stuffed from the start (actually, before the start Again, any info from experienced hunters in that region of WY is eagerly sought.
