FCA70B41-83A4-4D78-9659-638C28F97204.jpeg Split my 11 Wyoming antelope points with my longtime friend and hunting partner as my legs are getting shorter.
Did our research but had a communication breakdown I thought day three after the weekend. A98F0B94-2E5B-4BBF-A46A-BB600A4FC076.jpeg F7C1C128-D71D-46C5-9E9F-161ED75867D2.jpeg We arrived day 3 and started day 4. The unit had 3 distinct areas. We saw our largest buck about 30 minutes into the hunt and passed. We were seeing at least one animal per mile up to a few in what we learned was winter range by the warden that contacted us to check our tags and permission slips. He was friendly and helpful and we chatted for a bit. He said his experience in the unit was lots of animals very few large and advised if we saw a 14” shoot it. He shared some very good info with us and we moved on to area two that afternoon. There we saw a LOT of animals that had clearly been hunted hard. Stalks were tough to even get started. Day 3 we checked out the third area and was similar to the first area the antelope not so quick to bolt.
He ultimately filled his tag on day 3 on a solo buck way the heck far from the truck. He keeps doing this kind of thing. We quartered it and sledded it out. I shot a solo buck on day 4 uphill at 250 yards. So much easier to get in the truck. We had fun and meat for the freezer. Fun time and a beautiful area. Might return sometime just to fly fish.

Congratulations to you and your buddy. Very thoughtful of you to split your points. I enjoy a hunt more with a friend or friends verses a solo hunting trip.

How close did you cut it? Any preference points to spare?

Congrats. Looks like you had fun. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, we did. It was a much prettier area than I had imagined too.
I missed twice recently going regular draw with both 9 and 10 points. This area had not reduced tags and indicated we had a point more than needed for regular draw. We applied special. I don’t know what we could have drawn with.
‘Next to figure out what to do with the 12 deer points I have…
