Going up to the ranch we manage for the last days of deer season.
We both have mule deer tags and the spouse has an additional whitetail tag.

Elk is still open as well and we'll be looking for a good bull or a nice cow, we have cow tags with our any elk tags.

Coyotes are pretty furred up so they will not be getting any passes.

A big , mature 2x3 mule deer buck is on our hit list, been after him for about 3 years now. He shows up right at end of season for the rut.
Bucks will be staging with doe groups for the pre rut, should be interesting hunting.

Big rain, wind and snow event for today, this evening's hunt may be miserable but we have a nice warm house to stay in.

Good Luck. If you in the elk unit I think you are, I'm looking at that unit for 2023. I didn't buy a deer tag for 2020 because of CWD, but I bought one this year cause I just couldn't let my points go.

Saw a very nice MD up south of Riverton a couple of week ago. Out in the open in the sage. I tried to make him into a pronghorn but the tag just wasn't going to work. Just as well, pronghorn tastes better.

Let us know how it goes.

I agree on the pronghorn taste over mule deer.

Good luck!!

Be waiting for some pics of your deer/elk


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Sounds fun. How do you get cow tags and bull tags?

Keep your head on the gun and look at the cross hairs, everything else will fall into place.
Good luck looking forward to your hunt pics.

Back from the hunt, pics in the morning.
Mule deer buck down but no elk. Spouse passed up several smaller bucks and didn't fill his tag.

For elk in Wyoming we can get a reduced price cow tag in addition to a bull tag, actually we can get 2 cow tags for the area the ranch is in we manage .
Bull season ended today but cows go until end of Dec., still some hope to fill one cow tag.

Took a nice buck but I miscalculated on age, he's probably only 3 1/2 . I should have let him walk.

Hunting was tough on deer, cattleman ran all over the ranch gathering on atvs and side by side. Mature bucks were scarce.

Found one herd of elk on west end but they gave us the slip.

Lots of doe/fawn groups so the main rut will be interesting but no deer hunting during it.
The best buck we saw was on the neighbor that doesn't allow hunting. Hope he didn't get poached the last day.

Storm blew in Sunday morning with fog and snow that made glassing impossible so we packed up and headed home.

Best buck we saw and some small guys with doe/fawns.
Had several doe/fawns in the backyard every day. No doubt a big buck will show up now that rut is staring and hunting season is over.
