Agreed. I hooked up one guy a couple years ago with what I knew about public spots around Laramie. I never heard back from the guy. Not doing that again.

If you don't know where to go get off your butt and figure it out like the rest of us did.

get over it its not like your hunting areas are over crowded i moved here about 5 years ago when i was stationed in cheyenne. I found my own hunting areas and did my own scouting i came to this website for a little advise from fellow hunters but if all are grumpy ungreatfull people i retract my last post asking for decoying advice, but if there are some decent people who dont mind sharing what a beatifull huge state you have i would be happy to here what you have to say.

Wow, I came here to read your board to get an idear about the migration going on so I can keep up on hunting here in Utah where I live, but dang you guys are all grumpy, you should come down to our public marshes, get set up at 5am only to have literally 3 other groups of people come hunt within 60 yards off your decoy's or worse, after work hunt on the dike where you can literally turn to piss and pee on another hunters food. I should send you guys pictures and you'll hope the WY doesn't turn out ever like Utah! :fingerhead:

grumpy, ha! Actually I am a very happy guy. Cynical is more like it, but call it what you like fellas. I don't mind helping people out, but there has to be an exchange. I've been on here awhile and it gets old having people ask on their first post where the hot spots are. Put into the pot and contribute to the discussions for awhile and then maybe you'll get some info.

Good luck to you all and happy hunting. I had a hoot duck hunting out in WY for the 3 years I was in grad school in Laramie. Lots of fun and great memories out there. If you ever make it to the Buckhorn have a PBR for me. :beer:

it is good to see that things arent any different on the WY chat than they are on they are on the Montana chat.

Anyway, as things turn out I have the pleasure of coming to Sheridan for work as of today & plan on making a few trips in the next few months that I can hopefully parlay into hunts as well. I know the drill & am not even going to ask but if someone wants to share some BASIC info on the area I would love to chat & if anybody wants to come up my way (livein Missoula but am ALL over the state in the Fall hunting & working) I would be more than happy to take 'em out or just provide a little direction.

Check my posts on the MT site if you want...been a duck a holic since my teens & love sharing stories or the blind with folks.

All the best & good luck to everybody this year. Is it slow down there too? Been talking to hte fellas I was hunting with in Saskatchewan 2 weeks ago & they are out suntanning it is so nice up there. I think it is going to be a while before the Northerners make it our way...let alone yours.

Best,
Peter

Whats up pmahler? Im in gillette but would drive to sheridan to hunt with someone lol. I dont know anyone who really hunts over here. And yes the ducks are waaaaay slow! Its way too nice all over Canada. We do alot of hunting in Manitoba and its the same thing. Too warm. The geese are thick over here though. Gonna try and knock some down on Friday. I lived in Bozeman for like 3 years and miss the hell outta MT! Id love to shoot around up there again. Do you know what the non res process is?

Some are have moved out of WY, but I will be back for Christmas. :thumbsup: Plan on hitting the North Platte Pretty Hard.

Not commenting on the first post about being where to hunt, but on all posts about moving to WY.

We are still a hunter/gather society. However, Now we just hunt and gather money $$$$$...

You should be thankful to see a lot of posts saying just moved to WY. It means WY has not been hit as hard by the economy as other areas. Not saying it hasn't hit, but with being the Energy State (Coal, Oil, Methane, etc), it is still holding out with jobs.

I miss WY, and wish I could gather as much money there. And as a lot of others posted, count your blessing daily. Come hunt public land in WA with me, and you will be glad to get back fast.

Leave for public open to hunt walk in or even boat in areas at 0400, and are not the first ones in. Get in first, and have some idiot set up 60 yards from you, even though you signalled with the head lamp, and they knew you were there.

MAN the more I type the more I miss WY. :sad: Everything, Everywhere, All the time...

I'm new to this forum :hi: and YES i am moving to the Sheridan area. I arrive on the 4th of July! Dont need or want your spots. Dont put everyone in the same category it does not make you look like a very good person. I am looking for some friends for comraderie and to share my love of waterfowl hunting nothing more, nothing less. I know how to scout and am more than willing to do my own thing.

I would love it if someone could help me find some fishing spots :hi:

So, if ya wanna go get a beer or coke or something and shoot the breeze then hey I will be moving to Ranchester, Wyoming and working at the VA Medical Center in Sheridan.

My email is askblankenship@earthlink.net.

Let me know and I'll buy ya a cold one (pop or beer but pop for me)

Thanks!
Enjoy your freedom? THANK A VETERAN!!!

Well I moved back to minnesota after some time out in Gillette and Im def already missing it. Having birds all to yourself is something I really REALLY took for granted. If anyone needs any spots around Campbell county let me know. Im not using em anymore.

Canbakchaser Your public lands in Colorado are actually pretty darn good. I shot over a hundred birds last year in that state and only two hunts were on private land. For the people moving to Wyoming... I just moved here this October but just like every other state do your research and you will do fine.. You never really get much help from people that really hunt birds cause nobody wants to give up the spots they have.. I know its frustrating.. first hand.. I still am traveling to the states around Wyoming and will have to do all my homework during the off season. Good luck to everyone moving to the state.
Good Day and Good Huntin to You!

Hi all - well going Elk Hunting next week in WY and will also be using the time to look at a some property. Hopefully have a few years where I am currently at and then make the move with the wife. How is the hunting in general on the west side of the state? A BIG time waterfowl hunter but love just getting out. Not looking for any areas as I also feel that scouting is half the fun. You will always meet many folks in the field most a good natured, have found the best hunting partners sitting on a dirt road that are still great friends.

When you say west WY where are you referring to?
I'm headed over to fill a couple antelope tags next week and will be over there for a few weeks. Once I kill my goats, it's all about ducks and geese. This time of year I'll probably be spending more time in Idaho for puddlers and geese.
Where abouts are you going to be elk hunting?
PM if you don't want to be specific on the open forum.
Good luck with the elk, there are a ton of'em over there. :beer:

We start in Boulder and head up into the Wind River Range. Yes there are Elk all over. I live in Calif - waterfowl hunting for the most part is amazing, unfortunately most of the people are not. I live a pretty good distance from any descent hunting so driving for me is a no brainer. You get to like it actually. I figured once we get settled I can spend my days scouting. The West Side of WY - (Bridger National Forest) Pinedale - Cora - Boulder. Usually in and out so fast don't have much time to relax. So this time I'm taking a few extra days to look around. Words can not describe the views in Wyoming.

Pinedale, you should've picked up an antelope tag too. All the leftover doe tags are gone now but, it takes about 5 min. to get one around those parts.

They went quick this year - along with the deer tags - My buddy drew a Bull Tag so that's going to be the highlight of the week. I've been planning looking around all year - I'd like to buy now and spend some vacation time over the next few years. 6 more days :grooving: :grooving:
