Wyoming Region D, Unit 66
I am looking for any information from anyone that has hunted deer south of Casper, Wyoming in NR Region D and specifically Unit 66. I have looked through the search of old posts, but not much came up or it was older info. I am using an outfitter for a spike camp in that part of the world in October, 2017. Special deer tags have a 100% draw in that region from past drawing odds. There are muleys and whitetails. In talking with the biologist, they had a great fawn crop four years ago plus an APR of 3 pts, so there should be some decent bucks. Has anyone hunted there recently that can confirm this? This is my first hunt on my own out west. I have looked on Google Earth, have a GPS, but still need the On X Maps chip. I will be mobile with a truck, but plan to walk in to leave the road hunters. Planning on a .270. Any other advice? Season is Oct 15 through 21 or 22 (approximately). I am going to go a couple of days early to scout. Thanks for the help.
Almost anyone can shoot an elk at 30 yards with a rifle, but it takes a marksman to hit a 2" branch at 30 yards to allow the 6x6 bull to get bigger for next year. My consolation prize was my personal unicorn, Winchester M70 in .257 Roberts. Never let your wife know you went to a gun shop on a hunting trip.
