I've hunted there twice and have applied for this year. I hope to draw . we hunted the wyoming range in far western wyoming and west of laramie we saw elk in both places and killed a 5x4 and a spike in the wyoming range. some hunter pressure but nothing like colorado.The grays river is a top hunting destination lots of hunters but lots of elk too. I always apply for a general tag so you have options where you want to hunt. Keep in mind the closer you get to yellowstone the more likely you will have wolves and grizz. The wyoming draw process is a pain in the a$$ to figure out and you have to buy pref points you can't earn them by just not drawing.
I got lucky and drew with no preference points. I only had a 4% chance and got it. I will be near yellowstone but not next door. Close to Shoshone national forest I believe is the name. It will be in a wilderness area. I háček a friend that is a wy resident and he is taking me in.
WVbuckmaster--That's great you will be able to hunt the Wilderness without hiring a guide. That is the biggest bunch of BS that nonresidents have to put up with as far as Wyoming requirements! Just make sure your Wyoming buddy applies to the G&F and gets his guide license to do it or you both would have big problems if you get checked and he doesn't have the proper license through them. Good luck on your hunt and shoot a big one!!!
Topgun-I completely agree with you about the guide thing. If someone wants to ho into the wilderness alone that should be their choice as a free American. But it is what it is. My buddy is already getting his permit that he needs to take me. I sm fortunate to have a friend that lives there that can take me. I am so excited. I gate to wish my life away bug I wish it was Sept 30th.
Bring them in on a string. I love this term, if you want to be successful on calling in Elk, try not to just sound like the other caller. We all laugh at each other when we are practicing Elk calling at home or while camping. When I first started calling in Elk, I had no idea what i was doing and it's funny how many I could call in. The biggest Bull that I have called in to date was actually my first. I was making cow calls and screwing it up big time. But it's obvious I didn't screw up...
