    Wyoming MRS 2019

    I read the Eastmans MRS section for elk and I'm confused about points. Several times in the article in mentions that max points is 13 going into the draw. But then it mentions a few pages later that "a nonresident will need a bundle of points, well more than max at this point." Then there is a chart on the next to last page that color codes how many points are needed to guarantee a draw. The last option is 29-76 points. What is going on here?

    Max is 13 going into 2019. Points needed used to be the points one would have after all current apps have been drawn for a given hunt. Kind of a timeline type thing for someone starting today. OR has a cpl hunts that are 100 year waits to get thru everybody.

    Depends on the state. Wyoming has been using NR points for 13 years now. This year the max points anyone can have is 13. Don't know how long Colorado has been using points, but there are folks out there with 25 points.....that's 25 years worth!

    So here's an interesting question for those in the know:

    Take the example of CO; are the glam units of a quarter century ago, by & large, the same high demand/point units of 2019?

    I have a friend that has 24 for Colorado Elk. He still has not drawn his archery tag for 201.

    Reality is, he may never draw. I certainly will not in my lifetime.

    I think max points in Coloado is 28 or 29 points right now.

    I'm still confused, if max points is 13 how could you need more to draw? there's no way to get more right?

    If they have only been running a point system for 13 years that will make max points 13, then next year they will be 14 points.

    I am not sure when Wyoming started the point system so a little research would help.

    Here ya go. Wyoming started a point system for deer, elk, antelope, and mountain goats in 2006.

    So that would put the max point holders at 13 for the 2019 draws on those animals. It is kind of funny that when I did the search the information popped up on ESPN which I have never seen have anything to do with hunting.

    I understand what max points means, but I don't understand why the MRS article says it takes more than max points to draw certain areas. How is that possible?

    Max points is 13.

    There are no points for mountain goats for either R or NR in Wyoming.
