Wyoming Antelope

Submitted by Tom on 10/10/05 at 1:26 PM. ( )

I just returned from my annual antelope and deer hunt in Wyoming and all I can say is WOW what a difference rain makes on the size of antelope horns! They had been in a drought for about 5-6 years and this year it finally broke and they finally got the rain they have desperatly needed. I saw more BIG antelope this year than I have in the last five. I shot a really nice and heavy 15 inch antelope on the second day. Also shot a decent 4x4 muley the first day. The deer in the area I hunt really arent that great but I managed to get a nice buck. I went through some major weather changes last week. Sat Oct 1 and Sun Oct 2 it was 90+ degrees, Thur Oct 6 when I left for the airport it was 16 degrees with about a foot of snow on the ground. WOW what a shock to the system. How did everybody else do this year?

I hunt about 30 miles south of Newcastle (northeast corner of state) in Niobrara county. I killed my antelope on public ground and my deer on some private ground.It was a good hunt!
