wyoming archery hunt

I am planning a september archery hunt west of laramie .I have hunted between centennial and albany before but lots of people on atvs. Does any0ne have any suggestions for a backpack hunt in this area ,I have also heard areas around fox park can be productive. I hunt with traditional equipment I make my self. are there any other primitive archers out there I have'nt seen any discussion on the subject here yet. I also want to make a stronger bow my osage longbow draws 53 pounds and I would like to be around 60 to extend my range and for a little more punch. I can't wait til september I've got obsessive compulsive hunting disorder!!

Can we assume you are talking an elk hunt and you already drew your tag?

Very cool!  Congrats on the draw!

I would absolutely love to do an elk hunt with archery equipment.  But, since I have yet to even get one with a gun, I will go that route first.

Maybe if I get one or two under my belt. Wink

Good luck with the planning and good luck when the hunt rolls around.

the great thing about wyoming is all you have to do to archery hunt is buy an archery tag . then if you don't tag out you can still rifle hunt .this will be the 3rd year of doing that. not only do I get a chance for a 2nd hunt but it also makes a good shake down run for your gear . then when rifle season rolls around I get serious. I live in nebraska and can be in the mountains in about 5 hours so archery I just take a long weekend that makes the price of the tag not so bad. I also think the early hunt helps to aclimate to the altitude a month later when rifle seasons opens  I dont know if thats possible but it seems to make a difference. I hunted colorado last year and really missed the archery hunt not to mention no elk killed either
