Rodeo Jackson or Cody Night Rodeo

I will be in area in mid June 2013 and wonder if anyone can compare the twice weekly Jackson and the nightly Cody rodeos for quality of experience. Unfortunately will Not be in area for Buffalo Bill Stampede, so have to settle. Any input appreciated.

Well both are usually done by locals and it is nothing like the Houston, TX rodeo. We've only been to the one in Cody and so others like Teton Bill will have to speak to the one in Jackson Hole.

I would say which one fits into your schedule would be great. Never been disappointed by anything in Yellowstone, Cody or Jackson Hole.

For how many days in YNP and GTNP? What is your planned "entry point"? It matters because YNP is huge, the latter is relatively small. You'll probably want at least 3 full days just for YNP.

I read your profile; you might be interested in these two remarkable places. Do not let the name of the first fool you.

Cody, WY Buffalo Bill Historical Center A fascinating and world class complex (with cafeteria); plan on at least three hours. For all ages. http://www.bbhc.org/home/

National Museum of Wildlife Art – Another remarkable museum. North of Jackson on the road between Jackson and the south entrance to Grand Teton National Park. http://www.wildlifeart.org/

June is a great month to observe the young wildlife.

Wild Mustang tour in Cody. Is it best to go in AM or PM. Which one are you more likely to see wildlife? Thanks

You're probably going to drive to the McCullough Peaks area east of Cody. I'd go in the morning, if only because it gets pretty hot out there in the summer, and the mornings would be a little cooler. From the standpoint of seeing feral horses, I've never noticed that time of day makes much difference.
