A little back ground on myself since I am new here. I make and hunt with my home made longbows/arrows but have only bow hunted deer. I hunted for 5 years, took 9 years off because the Marine Corps made sure I didnt have the time to hunt, or was in a different country during hunting season. Now here I am in Wyoming and ready take advantage of living in such a great place. I rifle hunted antelope and elk this past season and had a blast. I have been lurking here for about a year and really appreciate this forum.
I was planning on applying for a type 9 archery license for 2012, mainly so I could kill a bull or a cow. Reading through the regulations, section 4 page 7-14 of the elk hunting regulations states:
"Archers with general elk licenses shall only hunt in those hunt areas specified in section 3 as open to hunting with a general elk license and may take any elk."
So with a General license, I can hunt the listed archery dates for that unit and kill either a bull or a cow? Is this correct?
On another note, I had some tag soup for dinner after not finding any cows in unit 61 last week. It takes me 5 hours to get to the closest late season cow elk hunt, and getting around in the hills in the winter was a little daunting. Not sure I will be doing that again next year.
