Antelope hunting is a blast.   A lot to learn about those animals and you will have many opportunities each day.  Have only hunted in Wyoming and they do not have OTC tags even for residents.

  :yeah: with a point or two though, there are many units you can draw in WY. It might take a year or two of applying to draw, but it's a lot of fun.

I have hunted wyoming once for does and there was no shortage of antelope where we were. We essentially hunted 2.5 days and got 8 antelope (4 people 2 does each). I hunted Montana 12 years in a row for bucks and does. Both places were a blast. I love hunting antelope and they taste awesome.  I believe most states are draw for antelope. Just be careful once you go you will be hooked.

October was the deadline to buy a preference point for next years draw in Wyoming. Buck hunting requires preference points and all the units in the western units with all the public land take many. Doe tags can be had without pp but the competition for those has increased a lot the last few years. Check the Wyoming F&G site to see tag numbers & draw odds for every unit on bucks & does to find somewhere to start. The eastern units will give you opportunity if youíre willing to hunt checkerboard or pay a trespass fee. Iíll echo others opinions on antelope hunting being some of the most enjoyable you can have. Good luck on your research.

Up to 4 pp in wyo now for antelope and just started poking around on GoHunt to see what options I have. Pretty helpful tool although I think Wyoming is one of the easier ones to predict draw odds if I remember right. Seems like wyo has lots of opportunity.

You will have to look in the eastern units with limited public land with only 4 points buck rub. We lost out to point creep in a middle of the road unit out west this year with 8 points. Speed goat hunting in Wyoming has gotten super popular the last few years unfortunately.

Wonder if I bite the bullet and apply for special if thatíll give me some more options. Eastern Wyo is a long drive for a little speed goat  :chuckle:

Wyoming is considering some rather significant price increases for non-residents.

https://www.powelltribune.com/stories/wildlife-task-force-prepares-for-final-report,52115

The draft bill calls for an increase for nonresident elk licenses from $576 to $1,258, nonresident deer license from $288 to $826 and nonresident antelope licenses from $288 to $874.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

That article doesn't accurately portray the increase proposal. The increase proposal is only for the special draw. But definitely would raise the special cost to an unreasonable level.

FYI:  General rule of thumb:  In Wyoming the units you can draw with the least points also have the least amount of public land.  2 years ago my boys both drew antelope tags (no points).  We hunted 4 days and did not see a single goat on any of the small patches of public land.  We started knocking on doors, paid a trespass fee and filled both tags, but we never did see a pronghorn on a public piece.   :twocents:

I think I have over 10 points for deer and elk and around 6 for antelope.  They can have all of my points back before I pay those ridiculous prices for any of those tags.  :twocents:

There are units that can be drawn still with 0 points in eastern Wyoming but they are few and far between. Antelope are everywhere out there though and you can still find a few on public even  in the least desirable of units.

Not my experience in 17.  We hunted hard 4 days and didn't see a single goat, buck or doe on public land (we used OnX).  Finally talked (and paid) our way onto private ground to tag out.  But then, we weren't there on opening weekend.  Maybe they were just wise by the time we got there the 2nd week.  I was told (by lots of people) to avoid the opening weekend circus.  Maybe we missed something... :dunno:

Watch the first half of this video by Randy Newburg...

He breaks down what is going to happen in Wyoming for deer, elk and antelope in 2023 and 2024 and beyond.  My 4 measly points we were going to use next year will probably not be enough to hunt some of the areas we were looking at for antelope.

Gary
One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset
