I am looking for a good place to take my wife and 14 y/o son on a combo hunt for antelope and mule deer for the 2010 season in either Wyo. or Co. I am willing to pay a reasonable trespass fee. any good ideas out their.
Wyoming is your best bet for that. You'll have a hard time getting an antelope tag here in Colorado. Application season is coming up and Wyoming's are due by by March 15. The nice thing about Wyoming is their cheap antelope doe tags. If you look through their Private Lands Public Wildlife section, you'll see there are lots of places that allow public access for antelope, plus a handful for deer. However, deer and antelope combo hunts can be tricky because you generally aren't hunting antelope in the same place as deer.
I'm working on my unit rankings for Wyoming elk, deer and antelope right now, so it's difficult to recommend a unit. One other thing to watch out for is Wyoming's screwy seasons. They aren't very consistent across the board, so some places won't have much overlap for deer and elk season.
Thank you exbiologist I have been doing some research and the Antelope and deer season run together in the Termoplis area BUT iread that their is some CWD around the area. I hunted up in Wright and killed a 15.5 inch goat in the 2009 season I have the oppertunity to return to the same ranch but the deer hunting is hard to come buy. Thanks again
Our antelope- deer season runs together in are 3 in northeast Wyoming near Devil's Tower and Keyhole Reservoir. Anteiope runs oct.1- nov 20 and deer runs the whole month of nov. We rent kitchenette cabins in this area and help with scouting and are lineing up some landowers that will allow hunting. For more info. e-mail Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 307-756-3454. Thanks Mike Smith Empire Guest House and RV Park
I only have guided hunts in north central Wyoming easy to get both tags and lots of animals. All 2009 deer and antelope hunts were 100% sucess. These combo hunts are my most popular hunt. I make special deals for families, but not sure if you are looking for an outfitter.

Deer hunters spend so much time trying to pattern deer that we forget that we also can be "patterned." After all, most of us hunt the same days and the same hours, so it isn't difficult for deer to figure us out.
While we would never recommend giving up hunting the traditional moving times for deer -- early morning and late evening -- it's important to keep in mind that deer will move at other times of the day. Sometimes hunting through lunch, or getting in your stand earlier than usual for an...
