    Just got back from another great diy archery antelope hunt in Wyoming. The 4th year in a row i have went and had success. I had a great time hunting and camping on the prairie with friends. Drier than I’ve seen it out there. Temps were cooler than normal. 43 degrees for the low a few nights. While there it did rain one day. Got it with my Mathews and slicktrick broadheads. Here are some pics of this years trip.

    Congrats on another successful trip and beautiful speedgoat.

    I’ve been out West a few times... Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and the western half of South Dakota. Saw pronghorns in all of them on various trips and lots of them.

    Always wanted to go back and hunt them... and never have. Maybe someday before I get too freakin old.. lol.

    Again ... congrats.

    Nice cutters on the lope. It is a different world out there. We hunted in the Douglas area for Lope and Muledeer. In fact I had permission to hunt the Douglas Airport/Drag Strip from the chief of police there....:D. Got the lope but not the Muledeer.

    No. It is a draw for tags there.

    Those antelope are every where in WY. Once flying in, we had to circle a runway for several minutes so airport staff could shoo them off the runway. LOL

    Great pictures - thanks for sharing. I've been buying points for the last couple of years to try to get a good draw when we go as some point.

    Going four years in a row, are you just entering the draw for areas with high chances or what's your methodology? I'd guess bow competition for the draw is much less that rifle.

    OTC tags like said no it is draw. However unless things have changed you could buy extra tags in hunt zones that were not spoken for at F&W headquarters in Casper. Cool thing about them they were half price after opening day. We bought 2 doe antelope tags each that way for the zone our buck tags were for. May have been archery only tags I am not positive. It was only about a hour drive to Casper F&W headquarters from where we were hunting. To the OP...do they still charge for a archery license on top of the other required license ? Seems like we paid $10 for the archery license once we got out there.

    $326 for tag, $72 for archery license then I think $10 for conservation stamp.
