WYOMING - LIKE NO PLACE ON EARTH!
DeerStalker has been hunting 'The Cowboy State' for a number of years now, and can fully endorse the 'Like No Place On Earth' slogan. Hunting in the shadow of the Bighorn Mountains is a great experience. This is 'big country'. Game is profuse, Pronghorn Antelope abound, and everywhere you look there are either Mule Deer or Whitetails. As elevation increases, so too does the likelihood of spotting Elk.
Wyoming Game & Fish Department maintains strict control over hunting permits - which have to be applied for well in advance of your proposed hunt, and are then issued on a lottery basis. These stringent regulations play a very large part in sustaining the plentiful herds. Woe betide anyone caught flouting the rules! Wyoming Game & Fish even supplies a free-phone number, to enable responsible citizens to simply report incidents of poaching.
The hunting areas containing large tracts of public land naturally tend to attract permit applications from large numbers of non-residents. The local knowledge and years of experience accrued by DeerStalker, ensure that permit applications are usually for smaller areas, consisting largely of private land. Whilst it would be impossible to state that the chances of drawing the wished for permits are 100%, they are certainly extremely high!
A typical Wyoming hunting adventure, organised by DeerStalker, flies a party of four to six British hunters into Denver, Colorado. First stop is, naturally, Cabela's - The World's Foremost Outfitter. In fact, a visit to the Cabela's store is so popular that this is often the final stop on the tour too! Then travel up into Wyoming to start hunting. Breaks from days out with your rifle enable you to enjoy more of The Cowboy State, steeped as it is in history: native American, cowboys and outlaws. Visiting the outstanding Buffalo Bill Historical Center museum is a must; and a couple of days spent in Cody allows enough time to take a trip into the world-famous Yellowstone Park. Even without the hunting, this would rate as a truly memorable holiday. Read the Hunt Report to follow one such expedition.....
DeerStalker is pleased to have
met two great local outfitters, and can thoroughly recommend their
services to anyone who wishes to hunt outside the 'group' environment, or
looking for more of a wilderness experience:
Visit either of these great outfitters' websites by clicking on the appropriate logo. If you plan a hunt with either of them, please give DeerStalker a mention. And don't forget to let DeerStalker know if you require help with arranging other aspects of the holiday: hunting permits, flights, vehicle hire, accommodation, temporary firearms import permit, taxidermy, route planning, etc......
