    Busiest MRS Section...

    So, this is by far the busiest section in this MRS subsection. Like, it's not even close.

    Why do all of you think that is? I have my theories but I want to hear your thoughts.

    Interesting. Maybe because the opportunity to hunt Wy is better then other states?

    Antelope is a good reason.
    Also WY is relatively young in the preference point game so people have em and wanna use em eventually.
    e.g. Will this be the year I burn my 9 elk points...time will tell

    In that thread from a few days ago where everyone listed the states where they apply, I counted the number of people who applied to each state mentioned. Wyoming was the clear leader with 89 percent of people applying there. The next closest states were 50-something percent. That's all the explanation you need, I think.

    My other observation would be that Eastman's is based in Wyoming, and the "home state" of the various forums tends to get the most use.

    Antelope sure makes a lot of sense.

    While I can't argue with Antelope I would also suggest that the number of nonresident limited entry tags available compared to other states creates more interest for information that the MRS can provide.
