Going out to the big horn mountains just west of Buffalo Wyoming for a deer hunt toward the end of October. I (our entire group) has never been out there before and just curios what to expect. We have done a little research on google earth and what not and for sure will be doing more but just thought I would ask if any LSFers have been out that way before.

Long way to go for just deer. I would go during elk season and deer are a bonus.

Why be dumb? His crew already applied and received tags for a hunt they want to go on. You provide absolutely zero value to his upcoming hunt. Elk tags are a totally different price point and season....I can catch just as many if not more walleyes 10 miles from home vs driving to Mille lacs....yet here we are.

Help a poster don't be a jackass.

Where did he say he already applied and received tags? And nothing was mentioned about Mille lacs. I'm glad u have a honey hole that's better than Mille lacs! Especially 10 miles from your house.

If you plan on hunting deer on the Bighorn National Forest, hunt as close to the Forest boundary as can. By late October most of the deer will have moved down to lower elevations and will either be on private land or close to it. This will be especially true if there has been a snow or two in the area, and by late October that is a very good possibility.

It sounds like you have a Region Y deer license. Although very limited, there is some public land that can be accessed and hunted west of Interstate 90 and 25 within Region Y. On these lands you will not be alone, there will be other hunters.

You will see lots of deer on private property that you can not hunt. It can be frustrating.

Good luck.

Lottery for Wyoming tags is back in March. So if he's going out there this October, he already has tags.

My point about Mille lacs was him making the comment about it being a long way to drive to kill a deer. Guys drive past a lot of limits of walleyes to go fish Mille lacs. Or most lakes for that matter. It's about the experience. I enjoy the long truck ride out to Wyoming. Hell a few years ago we were delayed getting home by like 3 days to the massive snowstorm that came through because we punched our last tag with about a foot of snow on the ground. By the time we got back to Gillette the roads were all **** down.

Spend lots of time glassing. Don't be looking for a deer, look for an ear, shadow, ear flick etc.

Another dumb tip is they are curious. If you see one bedded down a duck call will get them to stand up to get a better look at them. Also judging a Mulie from behind they look a helluva bigger than what they are.

Also being willing to work/walk farther than most. Especially after opening day.

We don't get kill 200 inch tv bucks, by we hunt them the way we want to them and we all make it a goal to kill one better than we did the year before.

Having killed dozens of deer in MN and having been out west about a dozen times I was trying to help the guy being that he has not been out west. Many states have deer licenses over the counter, since he said nothing of his tag situation I thought he may have flexibility. Getting an elk is so much more rewarding than a mullie in my opinion. I said it was my . I'm totally lost on what it has to do with Mille Lacs...... Nice batch of raghorns......
