"wyoming advice"

I'm a first time user so apologize in advance if i do something wrong. I'm interested in recommendations on where to go in wyoming to try and kill a really good deer. I have 6 preference points and have hunted Greys area in the past.
thanks,
Larry

That's a good area.....the Grey's. There's always a few pretty good bucks running around up there. The special bucks are rare, so scouting can improve your odds immensely.

Other than region G, H can be good, along with a number of other units that are tough to draw. If it were me, I'd go to G and put in a few weeks of scouting.

Hard to argue with Founder about monster mulies.

The record books indicate that the best deer genes in Wyoming come from G and H and no other areas seem to consistently produce "really good bucks".

I would agree with what Founder said. Your 6 points should be enough for a G tag this year.

There are many outfitters in G...i agree that your best bet for those points would be G as well. . That being said...you are probably far behind the curve in terms of getting a spot with one of the better outfitters in the area. Most outfitters who produce big bucks yearly are booked years in advance. Get on WYOGA and you will get a list of outfitters in the greys...start making calls to see who isnt already booked.

In our grouprayers <3 of us> we have an average of 7 or 8 pts. We would be willing to "share" pts to go for the right info.
PM if interested. A guy would obviously need a few pts of his own, but the info would remain with us. It may be my only unit G hunt, as we have pts in Nevada, Washington, Utah, South Dakota, Oregon, Colorado built up and need to get things going. All we have done is buy points (in most states) for the past 8 or 9 years.

LOts of good bucks taken from other areas. Private land hunts can produce some great bucks. We hunt a region not known for big bucks but they are there .You can find a great guided hunt in SE and SC Wyoming in region with no PP to draw. Many ranchers outfit their land and take great bucks every year, not just the "licensed outfitters". If you want a guided hunt for a big buck look around at some ranch hunts.

Any outfitter in Wyoming MUST be licensed by law. If you book a hunt with an unlicensed outfitter, you could also be violating state law. Tread carefully here...

Plenty of good outfitters that hunt G or H. You should be able to draw either region with 6 pts.

NonTyp: are you saying that a rancher has to have an outfitter license to charge hunters on his own land? Never heard of that before. Now for someone else to lease private land and "outfit" it for hunting, yes I agree with you that it requires an outfitter license.

There is a difference between guiding and trespass fees on private land.

Ranchers do not have to be licensed to guide or outfit their deeded land.They must have a license to hire guides who are not part owners.They can also outfit leased land..

Unless it has changed, the rancher does not need an outfitter license for his own land, but hired guides do need a state guide license. At least when I did a bit of part time guiding way back when, that was the case. (circa 1995-2000)

If it were me, I would call WGFD and make sure of the law. Don't go by what a bunch of guys on an internet forum are saying. There is a lot of gray area here, so as I said before: Tread carefully. Make a simple phone call to make sure you're in compliance.

Wyoming Statute 23-2-401(c) states that "a resident landowner may guide hunters on land owned by or deed land leased to him without a guide license."

There really should be no discussion needed on this because that Statute Tepee posted has been in effect for decades exempting landowners from needing any such license and there is no gray area such as nontypical mentioned.
