Here's everything you need to know to have a fun & successful hunt at Tyler Sims Outfitting.
Before you head out to Wyoming for your hunt, it is important to shape up your muscles for some walking.
Antelope hunts are less strenuous and can be aided by walking more. Mule Deer and Elk hunts are more strenuous so it is important to practice climbing up and down hills. If you do not have hills to climb at home then take the stairs to work. Little things like this will matter when it comes down to stalk time for your trophy.
Practicing the shot is one of the most important factors in your hunt. Perfect practice makes perfect shots. If you are rifle hunting take the time to shoot prone, standing and sitting. You can use a .22 rim fire to practice these positions to keep the shoulder pain and cost down. Before you arrive in camp please have your rifle sighted in. Practice shooting from 100-300 yards. Learn and understand your rifle and how much it drops at these distances. Tyler Sims Outfitting prefer long action bolt action rifles with bi-pods.
Remember to bring a rifle that you are comfortable shooting with. If you are comfortable with a 270 for elk bring it. The minimum for Wyoming is a .23 caliber rifle.
