Wyoming bighorn units questions
« on: December 05, 2020, 08:30:36 AM »
Hey HuntWa-

I have eight Wyoming elk points and want to use them this year.  I'm looking at the big horns and want to see if anyone has any experience with units 3840 or 41?  Thoughts on which of three would be my best bet?  I'm not going to take stock (but have it available in WY if absolutely necessary), I will have a four-wheeler available.

40 is steep steep steep. you approach from the top and the elk are down in the hell holes. lots of fun getting them out.

I asked my friend in that area the same question, as I've bene building up some WY elk points myself.  He lives within an hour of most of these units and put his favorites in this order:


He made it clear that 38 was his favorite

Looks like you're about 2 years too early for 38 though.

Hunted rifle 38 this year.  It was terrific!  Would gladly go again, but likely will never draw again.  Saw bulls everyday.  Getting to them is the challenge of course.  I killed a raghorn 4x and partner got a nice 6 pt.
