Elk hunting in Wyoming

2 posts in this topic

Any experts out there to answer a few dozen questions about bowhunting elk in Wyoming? I'll be hunting about an hour South of Casper and I have a bunch of questions about the hunt. The most important question is... when should I go? I'll be gone for about ten days and I want to time the trip as best as I can to increase my odds of taking a bull. Any input would be appreciated.

Hi Scoot- I can help you out with a 1/2 dozen or so answers. I have also just received my WY Elk license and do the archery season out there. I and friends have been chasing those rascally elk for about 20 years, off and on.

There about 501 mistakes you can make bow hunting elk, I personally, am on about my 4th lap through them all. wink.gif

A 10 day trip is about minimum to do well at finding them and getting into them. Of course more is better, but go and a stay as long as you can.

Send me an email and I will be glad to "chat" with you there. engadine52@charter.net

Dan

      This weeks warm weather should have the panfish starting to push shallow. Hit a spot for a few min this afternoon.... Not the biggest fish by any means... but a start to open water it is

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.
