    Tricks to prevent horn shrinkage

    I've never had the core sheath slip off with the horn. It does happen sometimes when boiling.

    Tricks to prevent horn shrinkage

    I use two or three small grocery type bags, but any plastic works as long as it's wrapped tight.

    Tricks to prevent horn shrinkage

    Here is the best way to minimize shrinking of antelope horns: asap after skinning, wrap skull plate or cleaned off skull in plastic up 3 or 4 inches on horn. I use masking tape on plastic to get tight seal especially around horns. Leave in warm area for two or three days and horns will slip off...

    Proper Meat Care for Antelope

    Come on Dink, while this is funny, it's not a fair comparison. When you put a gutted antelope in the truck is has started to cool already, but it's not 34 degrees cool to start with. We never pack them around unskinned for very long(2-3 hours), but make sure the are opened up all the way so...

    antler growth finish ?

    This ^^^ is true for when they begin to rub their velvet off, but most big bulls will show all their growth in the next week or so. Then begins the hardening process until they clean in the middle of August.

    WY bison results

    You might call Tag-n-Drag, I don't think they show up until Nov 1st. There are one or two other outfitters that hire out, but they are hard to get while elk and deer seasons are on. As far as finding the bulls on NF early(Sept, Oct) the G&F in Jackson is not much help. They give good advise...

    Proper Meat Care for Antelope

    When do I have to leave evidence of sex on a big game carcass I harvest? Wyoming regulations require evidence of sex must accompany the carcass taken in a hunt area where the taking of either sex is either controlled or prohibited. The evidence can be either the visible sex organs, the head or...

    Getting youth involved

    In my family hunting is part of our life. Never once did any of my three daughters, or any grandchildren yet for that matter, speak negatively about the hunt or the harvest. They grew up around hunting and all my daughters participated, two of them hunt every year and are raising their own...

    Late Wyoming Elk Hunt

    Where I hunt the landowner who has the most to gain if hunters don't corner cross is in the top 50 landowners nationwide. He's in the oil business, has the ranch to hunt on and has deep pockets and expensive lawyers at his fingertips. Obviously his attorneys are not advising him to push civil...

    Late Wyoming Elk Hunt

    Please share with us one time that you know of, not just think, that someone was ticketed for the act of corner crossing in Wyoming. I can name one: Bill Kearney in September 2003 and he was found not guilty in Albany County.

    Late Wyoming Elk Hunt

    And this belief is based on what? Certainly not the facts... If you access checkerboard by public access roads only, you are not "effectively" navigating.

    Problem: Effective navigation of checkerboard land patterns. Solution: Corner cross.

    Wyoming Region D Deer

    I just have to ask, why did you choose Region D over Y? You could be hunting deer and antelope in the same area and IMO enjoying better mule deer hunting.

    WY Antelope Horn Growth?

    What I gave are my observations, in central Wyoming, living around antelope and hunting them for the last 47 years. Frankly, I don't hold much stock in what someone, who calls prongs "diggers", has to say about antelope, especially when I see something different with my own eyes. Quite honestly...

    WY Antelope Horn Growth?

    I live around pronghorns all year round, have watched the same buck over the course of severals years and see bucks grow their headset from start to finish every year. These are my observations in the area I live in in central Wyoming. First, by now where I live, what you see is what you get. I...

    The recovery of Yellowstone Lake

    Interesting read here on this subject. Notice which predator that is not mentioned as a possible reason for elk numbers declining since the mid 90's. Rather the story focuses on trout and bears. "The loss of cutthroat trout is not hurting grizzly bear populations, said Mark Bruscino...

    Any cross bow guys on here.

    I didn't think there were any bills during the legislative session that I remembered. But I also follow TRW. The only topic I remember there was Commission authority on new technologies. I would look forward to see them, if you could find any past attempts on this Doug.
