Draw results were posted on last Friday...were any of you lucky enough to draw a tag this fall?

Just another point for me. It will be interesting to see who is building points like me or cashing in.

Doing the points thing this year for everything but antelope. Hopefully I can draw my lope tag!

Draw odds of 50/50 and we were in the unsuccessful 50 percent...6 points for next year. Time to start planning a mule deer hunt.

Gen tag for me, every other year. Love to hunt Wyoming Elk.

Nope just point again this year. Always next year! Got lots more states to get lucky!

what areas do you guys put in for?
I'm a Wyoming resident and im just curious if any of you put in for the same areas as I hunt :)

I have been putting in for 38 but have heard some good things about 39 and 45 also

02-22-2011, 08:53 PM
No luck for me this year. I put in for 45

02-25-2011, 02:16 PM
no luck this year...max points and still cant draw 7...any ideas for next year...

Unit 7 also.

02-26-2011, 08:38 AM
didn't draw 7 either im thinking it all came down to the regular and special tags. the price on that special tag is ridiculous. its all coming down to has the most money anymore.

How is the public land access in unit 7? The MRS makes it sound like the access isn't the best.

02-27-2011, 07:49 AM
7 has little pieces of public here and there and they are usually landlocked or they have one place to access a piece of national forest at least where i have been. you can get on but be ready to walk and stay in your tent. lots of private and to lease or even a trespass fee is ridiculous what they want. money is nothing the most of the ranchers up there.

drew unit 38 type 9, first time to wyoming anyone hunted this area before, any info appreciated.

02-27-2011, 10:58 PM
Hey JenBickel I'm also a Wyoming resident and put in for 38 archery. Fingers are crossed that I draw a tag this year.

Hi, My first time on the forum thing. Can anyone explain Wyomings point system to me. I thought I under stood it but after this years draw I'm not so sure. I'm trying to collect points for unit 35 and untill I get enough hunt on a GEN as a second choice. In other words be able to hunt 2 or 3 years staight on a second choice then draw the hard tag (unit 35) when I get enough points. It looks like I got it wrong. HELP ! ! !

03-01-2011, 12:14 PM
area 38 is definitely the best.. i havent drawn for the past 2 years so i am hoping that this year i draw! where at in wyoming are you?

03-01-2011, 01:34 PM
No luck for us in unit 111. Odds went way down this year.

03-01-2011, 10:01 PM
I'm also from Sheridan. Heck, for all I know we could be neighbors..lol.. Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.

Jim...odd are going down for everyone who hunts Wyoming. When I srarted Archery elk hunting it was tough not to draw, now I just hope and pray for my archery elk tag...

Lol that's funny. :)

hell im also a 38 hunter...just the neighbor across the mtn to the west lol

I think I lucked out and drew area 30-1? Anyone have any suggestions? I really wasnt planning on pulling a tag, just building points up but puting in for the draw cause you never know! I only applied for this unit because of EHJ suggestion. I hate to be this guy, but any help would be greatly appreciated! Is access private mostly or state lands? Should a guy hire a guide?
Thanks a bunch.

03-12-2011, 07:00 PM
I put in for 7 also and it looks like after next year, I'll be in the top points pool for that unit. Boy, missing the first year of applying for points has cost me several years to be in the top category for top units. Eventually I'l draw!

04-01-2011, 01:24 PM
I also had bad luck this year 25% chance. point for me..... next year will be my year! I will have to settle for montana, I am fairly confident on that.

Thump&Dump...you'll draw MT for sure. We have 1200 excess non-res Big Game Combo licenses up here. If you have a buddy that didn't put in and wants to go, a surplus sale will likely be around the 18th of this month.
