Damn, Great News.

If my Retirement stock recovers it would be a "good idea" to set up one hunt with one of my boys before I'm 70.

What does the cost of licencing, game processing, and meat delivery end up being?

AAR, that's slightly less varied than asking how much buying a new car would cost.

For most hunters that is never the issue, it's the luck of being successful drawing the tags you want. My situation is that I take all the equipment that I need to process my own, had a bad experience in Utah in the mid 80s, since then my brothers and I do our own processing and then weigh our meat before using a local freezer if we are staying longer. We actually have propane freezers on our trailers but they are pretty small. Licenses and tags vary from state to state and species you are applying for.

Just got off the phone with the outfitter, 91-6 area, rugged country, horseback. $2400 for my nephew, and myself. Includes guide services, dressing, and taking to the butcher. It is a doe/calf hunt, so I am looking forward to elk tenderloin!
I’m going to take my Howa .308, it’s in a Weatherby Vanguard camouflaged stock. I will load 168gr E-tip, 2700fps. Going to Angeles in the morning to test some loads. A2

For # 4, AAR, LOTSA $$. Gas to get there, motels on the way there and back, wherever you stay while there, eats, dry ice and other items, or you can hunt locally like I used to do Cali D 5 & D 6 units in the Sierra Range. BUT if you really want to score instead of look and wish, go out of state where odds are much better. Wyoming, Colorado and other states worked out much better most of the time. And yes ysr racer, myself and others will do good this year. Thanks for your reply.

People who come to hunt here from out of state are usually older guys who aren't hurting for cash - I don't begrudge them, it's actually a good part of our economy.

Not like there is a shortage of game. I am downright tired of looking at antelope and the deer are mostly things you try not to hit on the road. The hunting is easy, if you live here you can literally head out after work and fill your tag.

I am in Sheridan area. Looks like 91-6 is Wind River?

In a couple of weeks I will have residence status so things will get cheaper for me.

If you end up in my area give me a shout and i'll buy you a beer.

Good Luck. I will be hunting near the Casper area in late September with the Wounded Warriors and Alaskan moose in early September as well as Caribou mid August in Alaska.

I live down in Saratoga. The antelope wait for you to drive by and try to race you. Thereís been a few close calls while driving to work because of them.

Hope OP fills his tag. Definitely a lot of good game out here.

Yeah - and instead of a few photos and a $25 coffee mug that was made in China, at the end of the trip I have a freezer full of meat.

Congrats OP!

We're waiting for the Muley/lope draws. Got some good access near Lusk, fingers crossed.
