Hunting is one of my favorite hobbies, and I love to talk hunting with my friends (who will listen what I hunt) about what I’m planning on going out hunting for in the coming season. There is just so much to talk about and my friends and I end up telling hunting stories for hours. The best part about these hunting stories is that everyone hunts for something different so they are all different stories with different challenges and different ways of doing things!
Tip:. Always use best field dressing knife for you hunting game for fast and easy dressing.
So, without much more, here’s what I hunt, where and why!
Antelope: (Wyoming Game and Fish Antelope Page)
This was the first thing that I started hunting, because where I live there are antelope everywhere! In Wyoming and Northern Colorado you cant get away from the city and throw a rock without spooking an antelope or hitting one with the rock. There are just so many around here and they are really fun to hunt. I love the way that antelope tastes (even though some think it’s too sagey), that’s why I hunt for them. Antelope hunting is usually a nice hunt as well. One thing that you really need for an antelope hunt is a rangefinder, and if you’re looking for a good one check Hunting INsight. Antelope are really skittish creatures and they run really fast, making it easy for them to get away from you. It’s in the fall, so there’s still a lot of warm weather and beautiful days. Sometimes the weather can get pretty crazy and make the hunting tough, but it’s still always
a good time out there.
Deer: (Wyoming Game and Fish Deer Page)
Right after antelope season ends in the fall, Deer season starts! I absolutely love going out to hunt for white tails in the fall. It’s a little later in the season so the weather is a bit more of a factor than it is when I’m hunting antelope, but there are still plenty of nice days to be had deer hunting. One of my first deer hunts in northern wyoming was in the mid 60s! I couldnt believe how warm it was for the first weekend in November. It’s also nice to hunt deer in that area because they have both white tails and mule deer. I love to eat them, and typically I end up experimenting with my deer by making new sausages and things like that. There’s also a great amount of meat on deer, but they arent too heavy when pulling them out of the field.
Elk: (Wyoming Game and Fish Elk Page)
The last one that I hunt, and this lasts from december to the end of january is certainly the most fun. The weather is very cold by this point, and anything can happen with the elk. Elk country is also really great territory and so much fun to be out there exploring in. Typically you’re out there all alone, which makes it even sweeter. I typically hunt elk in east-central wyoming, and usually only go for cows. It’s hard to draw a bull elk tag, and I absolutely love the meat and couldnt imagine going a winter (or summer) without elk meat.
