WYOMING ELK PRIVATE LAND $6500
GENERAL DRAW UNIT SPECIAL TAG
NO POINTS REQUIRED/CAN KEEP POINTS
100 PERCENT PAST COUPLE YEARS
ON BULLS AVERAGING 300 INCHES
JANUARY 31 DRAW DEADLINE
This outfitter has 12,000 private acres on his family’s ranch. They normally only take a few hunters per year. October 15 to 30 is the rifle season and they like the first couple days along with the last week is normally the best. In 2014 they took only 2 hunters and both got nice 6 point bulls. In 2015 they took 3 rifle hunters and all took 6 point bulls, including a monster 350. These are 5 day hunts with nice cabin accommodations, meals and 1×1 guide service. The ranch is located in southeastern Wyoming where there are no wolves or grizzlies to hurt the elk population. In order to draw the tag with 0 points you will need to put in for the special draw, $1,100, and if you have 2 preference points and want to put in for the regular draw, $580, you should have a good chance of drawing. If you have points and do not want to use or lose them you can put in for area 7 as your first choice, should take 7 points to draw and the general special as your second choice. This way you can draw the general special tag and keep your points. Wyoming will average points if you want to use them, so if you have 4 and a buddy has 0, you can put in together and probably draw the general tag at only $580 each. Archery is also an option and the price is only $6,000 for 6 hunting days guided 1×1. Call Cliff on Hunt EK558 for more details or to talk with the outfitter.

WYOMING PRONGHORN $1750 3 DAYS
MULE DEER $3500 OR COMBO $4500 1X1
2 HUNTERS COMBO $4000 2X1 EACH 5 DAYS
This is a great hunt for a first time hunter wanting to do a very inexpensive antelope hunt or even a mule deer/pronghorn combination hunt. It is a great bargain for a couple buddies willing to do a 2×1 guided hunt. This is a full service hunt that includes lodging, meals and guide service. This is not a trophy hunt and most pronghorn will go 13 to 14 inches, with mule deer in the 150 to 165 inch range. Another great aspect is this private land is located in southeastern Wyoming near Laramie, a fairly easy drive from the eastern states.
Hunters need to put in for the March 31 draw deadline and past years most hunters draw a pronghorn tag with the special permit at $526 and deer on the regular draw at $312.
Call on Hunt 264 in southeastern Wyoming and we can put you in touch with the outfitter to assist you with the draw.
