    When you look anywhere else in North America to go hunt a grizzly...the $6k is pretty dang cheap. Just saying, there is nowhere you can go for under $10k to hunt grizzlies, and that means going to at least Canada, so I agree entirely with the 3-4 non-resident tags being priced how they are.

    I hope Wyoming gets it's hunt. I've hunted the Teton Wilderness and seen them in their element, they are awesome creatures. Personally, I have no desire to shoot one. I have taken a couple of Black Bears and probably will never take any type of bear again. They aren't great table fare (in my opinion) and I don't need another one for a rug or anything else. Just me I guess.

    Animals heretofore managed by the feds, mostly on land managed by the feds, and now a 1000% difference in tag fees between residents and the rest of us that footed the bill. That makes sense.

    (b) For the taking of elk, grizzly bear or moose, a hunter shall use a longbow, recurve
    bow or compound bow of not less than fifty (50) pounds draw weight and an arrow equipped with a
    fixed or expanding point broadhead that when fully expanded cannot pass through a seven-eighths
    (7/8) inch solid ring.

    This draft bill will also answer your gun caliber question.

    Most every state charges the non-res hunter fees that are MUCH higher than resident fees for tags and licenses for all game animals. This would be no different.
    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

    And now the hunt will be managed by the Wyoming Game and Fish. No different than what they are doing with moose, sheep, and goats.

    As to the price of the hunts you can figure in another $4000-who knows what for your guide service if you are hunting in the wilderness for the non resident. Also last year before they lost the grizzly hunt in British Colombia you could figure $15000+ for the hunt. I haven't looked to see what they are charging in Alaska for a inland or mountain brown bear hunt.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    I'm out at $6k for the tag. I think an outfitter would likely add $7K to $8K to that.

    I don’t disagree that comparatively it might be a good deal to some if you didn’t have to use an outfitter. Just not for me. Hunting & killing any animal isn’t worth that kind of money to me. There are plenty of guys that will go for it though.

    Where do i send my tag app and money? This is the only animal besides wolves id be willing to hunt in Wyoming because of the wilderness law and not having points for the others.

    there is an old saying ,"a fool and his money are soon parted."

    there is no limit to what some will pay.

    I have killed many animals in my life. not a single one cost me more then a few hundred bucks. can't see paying more now, think I will stick to deer and elk. they taste much better anyhow.
    to each their own though.
