DIY WY Public Land Elk/Muley hunt

Unread postby Dor » Sun Sep 26, 2010 2:04 pm

My buddy Benny and I just got back from a DIY public land Elk/muley hunt in Wyoming. I will simply say that it was an amazing hunt and I'm totally hooked on western hunting from here on out. We had multiple encounters and both of us came away with great Elk. I don't have his pics yet but will share some of the ones I have from my camera.

As for the Mule deer, I passed on a 140-150ish Muley the first day and regretted it every day after as the muley quality was not there. By the end of the hunt I was even trying to chase forkys with the recurve to no avail. Anyway, enjoy some pics, I will let them paint the story as I'm very tired from this 12 day hunt..:way:

Cool!! :D Those pictures really bring back some memories. I hunted muley's in South Dakota and Nebraska in terrain that looked exactly the same. Haven't been back out west since 2005 so I need to plan something for next year. What part of Wyoming were you hunting in?

Beautiful country! Congrats on the awesome bull elk!!
