I bowhunted 26 on the same ranch three times over a five year period. This year, while we were deciding whether to withdraw our app because of the covid thing, our rancher decided hunters were taking up too much of his time. So...the decision was made for us.

Dave, you might want to hedge your bet, there?s a lot of public mixed in with private, but it?s checkerboarded and you can?t access it without crossing private. Not trying to be a downer, but it?s best to know where you?re going. Unit 26 has a lot of private, 27 has a lot of public, but I didn?t see many goats just driving through the public. They know where they?re safe I guess. Good luck on your adventure, antelope hunting is a blast and I prefer the meat over any other except maybe elk.

Well...I do live in town, so I don't shoot them within the city limits.
Most of my antelope hunting is about 45 minutes to just over an hour away.

thank you Sir! Some of the true trophy areas take that many to draw, I am looking for a respectable buck but on the last day I will shoot a doe to fill my freezer.

Primarily private, but public some of the time
