    Not trying to hijack the thread, but based on last years odds, it appears to be very low odds of acquiring a type 6 tag?
    I'm looking at a few areas I'd like to hunt and learn, but the odds are <50% and <25% in many. Am I missing something? I've been archery elk 2x and would love to use a rifle to get something... anything on the ground. Going back to the previous areas for rifle are probably not an option.
    I can pm more specific information.
    Thanks guys.

    No landowner tags in Wyoming can be transferred.
    50/50 odds are not too bad, most residents would take those odds to draw cow tags. No guarantees in life.
    Cow tags usually have a longer season than type 4 tags but not always.
    A cow tag gets you out here, pretty laid back hunt with possibly of fishing and bird hunting also. Maybe get some antelope doe tags and have a mixed bag hunt.
    Lots of ways to get a tag without using those points.

    Wy-tex,

    Well put. That was my take as well.

    Not looking for landowner tags.
    I'm not complaining about odds, but wow, tough to even draw a non-antlered animal anymore...
    For us non-residents, many of us who are not retired, don't have enough time to bird hunt and fish. We're on limited time (week vacation from work- usually 5 days to hunt and the weekend before and after for travel) with a tag to fill.
    WyTex- Other than putting in the draw for less than 25% odds in most areas, what options are there for DIY hunter?
    Thanks guys!

    The demand reports for reduced priced licenses are not an accurate method of determining odds because of the way those draws are done. Actual odds are worse.

    You mean its not just dividing the # of 1st choice applications by the number of tags drawn? (for the random type 6 draw)

    Like say, there's 50 nonres type 6 tags in some unit and 200 guys apply for it as their 1st choice, doesn't that work out to 25% odds for those 200 1st choice applicants ( 50 drew tags, 150 don't draw )? It would be zero for 2nd choice applicants since the tags would draw out in the 1st choice round of the draw-unless I'm missing something?

    Regards,

    Party apps count as 1 application, but remove multiple tags from the pool.

    Sure. I get that. The way I see it, you have to try, right? If I don't apply, I know I won't draw.

    Of course, and some units have decent access with better odds. Wait until the tag quotas come out.. Look for a unit with decent access and already decent draw odds that's getting a bump in tag #s.
