    If outfitters truly want more clients, why not add some "private land" only tags that are easier to draw? It might also increase odds for DIYers.

    There are dozens of cow hunts that are 100% odds.

    I am a nonresident who?d love an easier time getting a tag but only if biologists back the tag increase NOT because an industry wants more.

    I'm a NR and don't think NR's should get more tags. WY is already pretty damn generous with their tags to NRs. I don't see how it's fair to want more.

    And I get why people don't like the wilderness rule. Of course it's dumb. On the flip side, there are literally millions and millions of acres elsewhere to hunt. If you're going to piss and moan about not being able to go into the wilderness areas and aren't going to hunt WY, that's entirely ON YOU.

    True its on me however......public land is public land......owned by the public.....and should be used.....unfettered by the public......to either run a business ( guide ) or to be hunted in a unrestricted manner (DIY)


    That being said that's why I live in Colorado.

    While Colorado doesn't have the same kind of law that Wyoming has concerning wilderness the private property laws where they can lock you out of a whole mountain or block access to BLM and Forest Service land come real close.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    I agree and those need to be fixed......and or opened up by RMEF or other organizations.

    Let's hope that never happens.

    Im a non res and only hunted Wyoming once (last year), but have hunted montana, Missouri etc thru the years. One thing I haven't read yet with all the responses is, wouldn't the easiest way for outfitters to get more clients to be just dropping their prices a little bit? We have been putting in for elk PP's for 2 years now hoping that with 5 pts we can do some sort of an elk hunt in a few years. Yes we have obviously looked into pricing for outfitters and they are pretty dang high. I say leave the tag #'s alone and if they need more $ drop the prices, more people with tags will then be calling. Just my perspective.

    While I agree with you, I'm afraid it will take a long time before they drop prices. They are pricing most people out of an elk hunt and I believe this is why the DIY approach is getting more popular.
