That is what I was thinking. It has been a crazy year as far as applications go. People thought we would see less entries and ended up being way more than a normal year.No it is not normal. Wyoming had thousands more applicants this year compared to 2019 as well. Guessing many of those tags never get filled.
Thanks CC … fewer tags does explain a lot.You really have to dig into the history a little deeper. Look at the total number of tags in the unit. The deer and antelope units I like to hunt have a lot less tags than they did 10 or 20 years ago. This year the type 6 tags were really low compared to previous years. I have been hunting Wyoming since 1980 and I have seen tags fluctuate a lot.
