Bow Hunting For Antelope In Wyoming!
All Wyoming Antelope areas are managed under a limited quota. It means that there is a set number of licences valid for each specific hunting area. Including bow hunting for these animals. In Wyoming, you can often buy doe/fawn licences which are reduced-price limited quota over the counter even after the season starts, sold separately or in addition to a full priced licence.
Wyoming’s most sought after antelope hunting is primarily found in south-central, central and southwest Wyoming. Most hunt areas in these parts of Wyoming have ample public access on lands managed by the BLM. Public land hunt areas are typically hard to draw. Antelope are also abundant in northeast and east-central Wyoming, although finding access can be difficult because the area is largely private land.
In some instances hunters should consider getting access to private land it may make your success rate better.
Archery seasons begin in early September and coincide with the antelope rut. Bucks are abnormally curious, but also highly territorial, so decoys imitating young bucks can be especially effective.
One of the biggest challenges of bow hunting antelope is quickly and accurately estimating range. There are no trees, bushes or any reference points to judge your shot range on. Most archers tend to shoot over antelope, thinking that they are farther away than they really are.
