    Wyoming Quotas

    It appears that the G&F is proposing to eliminate the 4pt. minimum for mule deer bucks in the units along the North Fork and South Fork of the Shoshone. They were in place for 3 years straight. What should deer hunters expect in the way of buck size after the 4pt minimum is dropped? My feeling...

    Wolf Information from Idaho

    https://bonnercountydailybee.com/news/2021/feb/09/idaho-wolf-populations-remains-stable-despite-high/ I read this article about wolf management and mortality from the adjoining State of Idaho. Although, I am not convinced that Idaho is a state to emulate when it comes to fish and game...

    New Cody Regional Office

    Right now, there is a Wyoming Game and Fish employee and his brother, brother in law and step dad staying in my bunkhouse. They are here for his 54-1 elk hunt. He and his group have been here for a week. The same young man went goat hunting with me last year while we were helping a friend with...

    New Cody Regional Office

    "You know that I posted this to try to undermine the G&F". So disclosure of facts and plans by the G&F through a newspaper article undermines that organization. How so? Is the cost, the square footage, the location of the structure or the layout of that structure not to be shared with the...

    MH Mule Deer Hunting 2020

    The images are horrible. I was hunting alone which is not conducive to great grip and grin photos. In grizzly country, which this is, I spent more time quartering the animal and watching over my shoulder. If it matters, it is likely a 21"-22" 150 type buck with decent fronts and backs and eye...

    Tundra or Silverado

    I sold my 2007 Tundra. In the past, I have had that Tundra for 13 years and prior to that it was Chevrolet Silverado. I am looking for a used Tundra or Silverado in the 2015 to 2018 range. Crew Cab or perhaps a Double Cab. I need it to hunt in and to pull my toy hauler in the summer. Any input...

    MH Mule Deer Hunting 2020

    I started mule deer hunting on September 15 on the Greys River. A friend traded me info in that area. I am letting him and his entourage stay in my bunkhouse for his 54-1 elk tag. Based on the info he provided, I may or may not turn the water or heat on in that bunkhouse. That about tells the...

    Hornady ELDX

    A couple of weeks ago, I shot a 3 year old muley buck here in Wyoming. I was shooting my Sako 85 in .300 Winchester Magnum with a 178 grain Hornady ELDX bullet being pushed by 72 grains of H4831SC. While quartering the buck, I discovered a 33 grain portion of the bullet in the opposite shoulder...

    Wyoming Region G poor deer hunting this year

    I hunted G this year for the first time in many years. I was hunting a drainage I had been sent to by a friend who lives in the area and works for G&F in Star Valley. My impressions on the experience were based on that hunting trip and the scouting trip a month earlier. My observations were...

    Kahles Does it again

    My Kahles experience was nothing like this. I posted about it in late 2018. I had Kahles binoculars that had lost their clarity. I sent them in to Swarovski who handles their claims. I believe the binoculars were forwarded to Austria. I was told that repairs would be around $ 400. That was close...

    Smoke effecting hunting?

    I just got back from the Greys River. We scouted for a few days before the hunt and hunted 4 full days. The smoke was definitely there. It was also extremely warm. Most of the deer activity was right before dark. During the hunt the elk were extremely active for most of the days and all the...

    G&F Not Guilty Verdict Cody

    Sarcasm is always welcome on Monster Muleys. I actually am not bashing on Warden Queen. Flock shooting and sky busting cow elk is a real problem in this area. Lots of late season and other cow elk hunts bring this on. Often the result is wounded elk walking on three legs or left mortally wounded...

    G&F Not Guilty Verdict Cody

    My point is really simple. You obviously don't know the players in this situation. In a perfect world, prosecutorial discretion would prevail. That is what 1st and 2nd year law students are taught in a criminal law or procedure class. In Park County, you have a prosecutor who is known by many as...

    deer unit 90-1 question

    Buzz H, I think the radios are a good idea. Cell service is spotty in many remote locations of Wyoming. Your provider has a lot of bearing on the issue. I usually carry a cheap flip phone while hiking and hunting. I am always surprised when it rings. A few years ago, I was camped just a mile or...

    Grizzly bear(chicken killer)

    Dusty Lassiter is a good man in what many consider to be a thankless job. The article noted that the bear was euthanized after consultation with the USFWS. Some folks will contrast this outcome with what didn't happen to the grizzly bear who mauled the man on East Painter in the Sunlight...

    Well, I went to bed early last night because I am an old man. I admit I was surprised when I checked this thread this morning. Jeff/jm77 is right on with regards to state management of the grizzly bear by GF in Wyoming. They are in the best position to do this. They know the situation better...

    Grizzly Bear Attack in NW Wyoming

    Grizzly Bear Attack in NW Wyoming

    Are you serious? That may be dumbest question ever asked. How much time have you spent in this part of NW Wyoming? When the USFWS manages these bears, the usual course is to blame the poor person killed or maimed. If the G&F were in charge of decision making, they would likely take the bear out...
