howdy!!

I'm down in Laramie. Last year was my first hunting season in WY. I did pretty well, but am hoping to get the waterfowl more finely tuned. It's tough with limited access and limited water. Sounds like it maybe be better up where you are.

Hey Curt,

I stayed mostly around Laramie last fall. I'm trying to get some access to the North Platte but people aren't too keen on letting you in without $$$$. If you know of some spots up around you that would be great. i don't mind driving for good hunting. I've got a dog and she'll hunt anything. Stay in touch and we'll get something together next fall.

Sounds like a plan man! That dog will be really nice for mostly all we hunt is HUGE lakes.....well the place that I would like to go is a giant lake. You're probably thinking....why are we hunting the roost....well these things dont leave. We shoot at one end and they go to the other end. :thumbsup: Then we do the same next weekend.....well anyway sounds like a plan. We will see what happens! :yes:

take EM' close said:

That's great. This is just a thought and I don't know the area at all so it might not be possible, but we should set up some guys on each end of the lake and pinball 'em back and forth to each other.:yes:

Either way that sounds like a blast. I don't want you to give up your spot, but just to get an idea of where I'll be driving what town is that near? You're close to Montana, do you guys have any good wild pheasants up there?

As for the dog: last season was her first. She did great on pheasants, ducks, rabbits, and quail, but was still kind of young to take on a full sized goose. I got her on 1 goose hunt just so she could check it out and see what it was all about. I work with her all the time and I'm sure she will pick up the goose game real quick. She's a big british lab and shouldn't have any problem hauling back those honkers.

I'm looking forward to the hunt. Is it fall yet?

The whole setup on one end and then another on the other end....we've done that and it kind of worked though my dad never setup. He was just sitting over there because they mostly light in the middle and then swim away from me. He would then stand up and spook them right over me. I got a tripple doing that the last time we were out there. But we can try!!

The town I live in is Greybull, Wyoming. You might not know where that is but it's in the Big Horn Basin right next to the Big Horn River. It isn't a whole hella far from Laramie, I've drove there many of times to see my sister a while back while she was in college. I'm sure you won't have any trouble getting here. Also since we live next to the river, if the hunting is slow on the lakes we hit the river and try for an occasional woodie and some mallards.

As for phesants, we have a great population down here, well for Wyoming I guess. We have MANY spots to hunt and lots of roosters. If you did come down and bring your dog, we should wait until a couple weeks into phesant season that way the geese are busted up and sitting on the HUGE lake and then that way their isn't many phesant hunters out so we could take after some phesants in the afternoon. It's better later in the season because in the early season the geese are dispersed on all the little ponds around but after about a week, they move to the lake I'm telling you about. I guess we will jsut have to wait and see though eh!!! :yes: :thumbsup:
