I am determined to go elk hunting next year and I am trying to start planning on where I should go in Wyoming. I have one year preference so i figured i will be drawn for the general tag.
I have been looking a lot at the Units and I see alot start in October. I was wondering when the Elk rut generally runs in Wyoming? I plan on archery hunting mainly but might go back with a rifle if unsuccessful.
I was wondering if anyone can point me to a good unit to check out. This will be my first elk hunt and I have to avoid Wilderness areas bc i dont want to hire a guide and i plan on backpacking in.
I was kinda leaning towards 36 and 37 , 98, 102,102, 107, 128,( 129 i like the sept 1 start date.) But i honestly dont know much about these units. Any info i would greatly appreciate.
I posted this on another site and a member stated there were alot more units than 129 with an early sept start date. He used unit 29 as an example. But all the info i could find on the wyoming DNR site showed Oct 15 for that unit. What am i missing? Is there a link i couldnt find for other start dates?
Thank you for any information, hopefully i can finally chase some elk next fall.
