This hunt is held on a 20,000 acre private ranch in East Central Wyoming. The ranch holds hundreds of antelope. Hunters have the option to apply for just a buck tag or a buck tag and a doe tag. The buck tag can be drawn with no preference points when buying the special license. The doe tag has seen about 50% draw odds. There are no preference points for doe tags. There is no fee for taking a doe. If the doe tag is not drawn, the hunt becomes a buck only hunt.

Both rifle and archery hunts are held. For the rifle hunt, hunters and their guide use 4×4 vehicles to navigate through the ranch looking for antelope. Once a herd is spotted, the glassing begins to look over the animals in the herd. When a good buck or mature doe is found, the hunt is on.

For the archery hunt, hunters will be in blinds by water holes and trails where bucks have been active. In the blind, hunters are supplied food, water, soft drinks and ice. A guide will drop hunters off and stay on the ranch until they either harvest an animal or evening is approaching. Crossbows are legal to use during archery and firearm season.

Includes: Guide, in-field transportation, field lunch and care of meat in the field. Lodging and meals (other than lunch) are not provided. Hunters stay in a local motel.

The application period is Jan 1 – May 31. This unit does not have leftover licenses so hunters need to book prior to the application deadline of May 31. License cost is $614 for the special buck tag and $34 for the doe tag.
