    Resident Preference Points for Deer, Elk and Antelope??

    Wyoming legislators are proposing a bill that would give the Game and Fish Commission authority to develop a preference point system for resident deer, elk and antelope. What do you think? I say keep it as it is!

    If I was a Wyoming resident, I'd be screaming my head off. Better start calling them, tell them NO...NO...No!

    X2 on what CC said. If I was a resident, I would fight it every way I could. Point system looks pretty good till you draw your first tag, then your on the outside looking in.

    Yeah. Residents deserve better than that; yikes.

    I guess I'm curious what's the problem this would fix? Maybe I shouldn't assume things either...lol

    Someone from the Cowboy State will shed more light on this...

    I have already emailed my rep, Bill Haley, I think he may be on the bill. Told him no way and he stated he wants to hear from his folks in Albany County. Send him an email:Bill.Haley@wyoleg.gov

    Plain & simple....MONEY! If this is passed, they won't just give you points. Look at what NR's have to pay for points.

    I think this is complete garbage. All this is coming from a guy in a suit and tie that sits behind a desk all day that’s never hunted a day in his life brainstorming on how to increase income to the state. If I was a resident I would be voicing my opinion very loudly on this one. Pretty soon people won’t be able to afford to hunt. It’s become such a big money game.

    There are residents in Wyoming that do not draw year after year where others do. To take the "bad" luck out from pure random draw, it has been said before to give them preference for their past draw results. These records are already on electronic file and simple programming changes would an should cost nothing to the residents or the state. Would not change resident quotas. Most important it would not change their theoretical odds but actually guarantee the resident those dodds. This should only be objectional to the "super lucky" but not to those that are not successful year after year.
    This would not be a "buy" point preference system. But rather draw preference for those unlucky the year before.
    This is what I heard before and can't say if it would be fair or not, especially in a state like WY where the outfitter lobby is so powerful.

    And how, may I ask, do you know this? When NR's are paying a lot for point, do you really think the Legislature would not tap into the resident pool also?
