We hunt whitetails in Wyoming and in Texas. There is quite a bit of difference in size between the desert bucks down on the border and deer from Wyoming’s alfalfa fields. Wyoming bucks average around 160” and weigh close to 300 pounds on the largest of them. The whitetails down south average 130” and weigh 160 pounds. Body size, facial features and hide coloration are very different.
Wyoming Hunting Opportunities
Wyoming has a whitetail-only permit and a mule deer/whitetail, either-species permit available through drawings. Whitetail applications have to be completed before the end of May. There are no landowner permits available to purchase. You can purchase Commissioner and Governor’s licenses through various non-profit organizations, but most whitetail tags are easy to draw.
For most areas, archery hunts are conducted in September (crossbows are legal) and rifle hunts begin in October and into November for whitetail.
Hunting areas are accessible from trucks and ATV’s
Generally, most of our whitetail produce 155” to 160” deer. The largest we have shot was almost 180”.
We have large, private ranches leased.
