    Please critique my caribou gear list

    The trouble with a pistol is most of my friends can way outrun me. I have a better chance of hitting one in the leg with my rifle if a bear gets after us! :LOL:

    6% non-resident draw tags

    Wow, I should come hunt Oklahoma!! States need to always put their residents first, just give non-residents a reasonable chance.

    Good call on the Glock! It's a exceptional safety item and very much needed!! (Tell your wife I said so!)

    Please critique my caribou gear list

    Looks like a well thought out list. Me personally, I wouldn't bother with the handgun when I have a .300 Winchester. I would leave it and add an Inreach or SAT phone.

    6% non-resident draw tags

    I'm not more educated for sure. Please stick around, you're perspective and views are always welcome. I hope I didn't come off to you as otherwise. My apologies if I did.

    6% non-resident draw tags

    We're seeing a trend towards limiting tags and hunting opportunities for non-resident hunters. I see it up here in Alaska too. I personally think that states should absolutely protect the resident citizens but there has to be some reasonableness in it. I don't know if the 90/10 split is best...

    My "Western Rifle" Weight

    I agree, I don't really care that my rifle weighs a little more than some of the super ultralites! I tried to convince my wife that I needed a rifle that was a pound or two lighter, and she told me to lose 10 pounds from my gut and I'd be money ahead! Go figure!

    Wy SF0074

    I'm in that boat with 12 points for deer and elk. I've applied for elk for the last several years, just haven't drawn it yet. I haven't tried for a deer tag yet but I buy points for when I can narrow down a good place and have the time to do it. It's hard to do much scouting in Wyoming when you...

    I don't know how to post the link but... this bill looks like it could effect all of us non-residents. What say you?

    WY 2019 Grizzly Relocation Annual Report

    The black bears we eat. The grizzlies are generally converted into pelts! I've eaten some grizzly and brown bears...yuck.

    WY 2019 Grizzly Relocation Annual Report

    I'd be interested in seeing follow-up data on the released bears. Did they return to their original capture areas and continue to cause problems. That has certainly been the case with many Alaskan bears. They are amazing in how far and fast they can travel when going back to their home turf...
