General information before you come on your hunt


Typical weather for deer and antelope season is variable but ranges from a foot of snow and 10 degrees to sunny and 80 degrees. Normally, you can expect 30-40 degrees in the morning and getting up to 60-70 during the day. We recommend dressing in layers.

What to Bring

One piece of blaze orange is required to hunt in Wyoming. Hunters usually just wear an orange hat and they are good to go. We have complimentary orange hats at the lodge for anyone who needs one.

Good hiking boots that can stand up to cactus, with 0-200 grams of thinsulate.

All guides carry laser range finders and good optics, but feel free to bring your own if you would like.

Average Shot Distance

Antelope--average distance is 150-200 yards with some shots going to 300 if you are comfortable shooting that range.

Mule deer--average distance is 100-200 yards. Usually the deer are in more cover so we can stalk a little closer to get the shot. Sometimes those big guys require a longer shot though. By and large, if you are comfortable shooting out to about 250 yards, you should be fine.

Minimum Caliber and Scope

Wyoming law requires rifles larger than .223 caliber, so basically a .240 Weatherby and up are the legal cartridges in Wyoming.

For antelope, a .243 or 6mm works well on up to as big a caliber as you want. Usually .270, 30-06, or 7mm are about as big as most hunters go unless they are on a combo hunt and want to use their 300 Mag for both species.

For deer, we like a .257 caliber on up to 300 mag. or larger if you prefer.

Scopes--a 3x9 or 4x12 works well in Wyoming, mainly try to stay away from the fixed power, high magnification scopes. The mistake we see hunters make is to think they need high power for long shots, but if something is closer, it is hard to find the animal in the scope. So usually we like to start magnification at a lower lever, like 3 or 4, and then if you need to zoom in to take the shot, you have that option.
