Antelope Hunt Details

A Day In Camp

Your antelope hunt begins at 4 am when we meet in the dining tent for a hearty breakfast, pack your lunch and discuss the plans for the day. After breakfast, still, well before daylight, you and your guide leave camp for a full day of hunting. Once you reach your destination, we spend most of the day glassing and locating bucks with binoculars and/or a spotting scope. Our time and efforts are focused on areas where we have historically found and recently located mature bucks in our scouting efforts. Once we spot your trophy game, we plan our stalk carefully and hike to a vantage point to where you can make your shot.

Our Hunting Camp Locations

Lodge Hunt

Our Lodge hunts lie within the boundaries of areas 88 and 89, which allow us easy access and the ability to hunt quite a few of the best-limited quota areas in Wyoming for antelope. These areas routinely produce bucks ranging from 13” to well over 16” gross.

The hunts take place in Western Wyoming’s foothills and high plains, with elevations ranging from 4,500 feet up to 7,000 feet and more than 7,500 feet in some cases. You will be hunting antelope in the high sagebrush plains, around riparian areas and cedar breaks.

Licensing

The Wyoming Game & Fish Department manages regulations and licensing for all hunting and fishing in the state, and you must be eligible to purchase a valid license and any additional permits or stamps before booking your trip with us. We recommend allowing Best Of the West Outfitters to process your license applications, preference points etc., or you can manage your own application online.

Please review our Licensing Overview page for more information on WG&FD deadlines and fees.

The Wyoming Range has long been known for excellent deer habitat and herd genetics. The key to a successful mule deer hunt is excellent pre-season scouting by professional guides at Best of the West.
