Re: Tips for Wyoming

When are you going? What type of accomodations? It isn't the best elk area that I've seen but it can be good. I've seen a lot of small bulls come outta there, but have also so some hammers come out of there from places that you typically wouldn't see 300"+ bulls. Did you draw a tag for this year?

Re: Tips for Wyoming

I'll be hunting the Sierra Madres in Wy. about the same time.Your going at a perfect time.Listen for the bulls then move in as close as possible,100 yards or less,and try and call him over.Cold calling on fresh sign also works great.If you have a partner, one guy can keep the bull talking while the other stalks in for the shot.Try them all and see what works.Nothing better imo then archery elk in Sept

Re: Tips for Wyoming

I am originally from Casper hunt Wyoming to this day as my brother still lives there. Medicine Bow isn't the greatest big bull area but it is a good area. Don't be afraid to walk and get deep in the area you are hunting. Be prepared to stay out over night if you get on a herd and can camp over night your best bet is to stay out and get after them as early as possible. If you aren't picky you have a fair chance to get an oppurtunity. Remember to be patient if they aren't talking don't try to make them don't over call that is one of the biggest mistakes guys make. Most of all just have fun and enjoy that is some beautiful country you are going too. I just got home from visiting my family out there and miss it more and more everyday.

Re: Tips for Wyoming

I would also call the forest service and ask about road closings, and restrictions. I believe there is, or was, at least one fire going in the Medicine Bow this summer.

There was a fire burning in Medicine Bow when I was out there in July they declared it about 90% but said it wouldnt be 100% until it snowed this winter.
