The deadline for Wyoming is March 15th. If you look and the Wy Game and Fish HSOforum, the 2011 non resident application booklet is out and you will find all the areas and applications.

If you look around the HSOforum, you can find out the draw odds for all the different regions and hunt units.

Typically, the more public land in the unit, the harder the tag will be to draw. Also, if there are high draw odds, chances are the unit has alot of private land.

Wyoming is a great state to hunt, just takes a little research to figure out the application process and different units.

Would be glad to help you out if you have any more questions.

Any one can do it. Just be careful of the wilderness areas in some of the units. As a non ressy, you will need a guide if you want to hunt wilderness areas. On the flip side, alot of units have little/no wilderness areas, but still have lots of public land.

Once you decide on an area, make a call to the game and fish office and speak with the CO or Bio, these guys are a great asset when hunting in a new area.

Sorry, didnt answer your whole question.

The hunting on public land can be very good. Ive been out the last 2 years, once for deer and once for antelope, and have had great hunts on public land.

A few years ago, we hunted a private ranch, who charged an access fee to hunt.

This became too expensive, so we began looking at areas with public land and have had great experiences.

Here is my 2010 public land antelope.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything.

    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
    • Congrats Nice Bird!
