    Non resident Elk draw results for 2022

    It was that many just in the regular general not to mention the special and LE tags. We have gained over 2500 applicants in the regular general alone since 2020.

However, there was a record number of people involved in the...

    Non resident Elk draw results for 2022

    I have a couple residents trying for this tag as well. Hopefully one draws and we can see the hunt from both sides of the fence. I think you will have a great time! So many big bulls out there...

    Would really appreciate it if you let us follow along through a few posts. 99% will never draw that tag.

    Wyoming elk draw results

    My son will be any elk hunting and i drew a type 6 cow. It will be his first elk hunt so he won't be picky at all. He has a medical condition that severely limits his mobility so it will be a different hunt than I'm used to but I still like our chances.

    I saw that change and agree- figured it would take quite a few more points.

    Trout Fishing in Wyoming

    Dip a worm, with stealth, into just about any mountain stream up there and you will have a brook trout in seconds. My family does it just about every summer. If you find slightly larger water, spinners can be deadly. Fly fishing works as well but tough on the smaller creeks.

    What's everyone up to?

    Agree, it does go so fast... My oldest just took a job in Florida and is moving next month. My wife isn't too keen on him living that far away so my chances of permanently moving further west just got downgraded. My plan is to have my youngest move west so we can have a house on the beach and...

    MT results are out. Drew my Mtn Goat.

    I would personally hunt early simply to have better weather. Goats are pretty easy to spot when there is no snow! No real help to offer but congrats on the tag!

    Hornady Interlock

    From my experiences they work similarly to core-lokt bullets. A 200 grain on deer sized game will be devastating and they would work just fine on elk at reasonable ranges. Happy hunting.

    Does it makes sense anymore?

    Pre 90/10, non-residents actually required fewer points for many of the premium tags. For instance, area 38 moose was drawn at 23 points for non-residents and 25/26 points for residents. I am guessing even post 90/10 he is going to have a very long wait if a tag like that is his goal.

    Does it makes sense anymore?

    I think for someone starting new it makes a lot less sense than it did. It is hard to learn if you can't draw tags fairly frequently. For those experienced, I think it makes more sense than ever to have multi state strategies so a tag can be drawn more than once every 5-10 years.

    Once in a Liftetime tag? Then what..?

    I can't speak for sheep or goats but every hunter I know that has hunted moose wanted to hunt moose again- They are a fun animal to hunt.

    The Wild Game Eats Thread...

    Had good stuff last night - Reverse seared antelope strap, garlic butter mushrooms, garlic parmesan baked asparagus and a side salad. Unfortunately it was our last package of antelope steak from last fall. Sure wish the population was doing better. It may be a while before I get this for...

    WGFD license proposals 2022, big cuts to Antelope.

    Completely understand where you are coming from. A hunter shouldn't feel guilty filling a permit issued by the state agency in charge of managing that resource. That said, I think they are doing a crappy job in the management department so I can see why some residents are taking matters into...
