I was cleaning out my old desk in my gun/reloading room and found a tablet with everything about my hunts to Wyoming in 1990, 1992 & 1993.
1990- Hunters 5: Deer killed: 4 bucks, 8 does. Antelope killed: 3 bucks, 6 does.

1992-Hunters 6: Deer killed: 6 bucks, 4 does. Antelope killed: 6 bucks, 4 does.

1993-Hunters 6: Deer killed: 6 bucks, 5 does. Antelope killed: 6 bucks, 7 does.

We filled every tag we had each year. Non residents could buy as many as 5 doe deer and 5 doe antelope tags.
I also have saved a lot of the old tags. In 1981 (my first year hunting Wyoming) -NR Buck Antelope was $100.00. 1990 Buck Antelope & Deer : $100, Doe tags were $25.00. In 1992 & 93 Bucks tags went up to $150.00 and the doe tags stayed the same. Prices stayed the same thru 1996. Actually compared to these prices, today's prices are not all that bad, especially the type 6 doe/fawn tag.

I usually brought home 4 animals (buck deer & antelope; doe deer or antelope), which filled my freezer for sure!

In the early 2000s the doe tags were still over the counter for many areas. I took groups of guys out several different years and we each bought several tags and very rarely ever saw another hunter. Boy how the internet has changed things...

We bought our doe tags at a gas station and a hardware store. They were issued a book full and when they were gone, that was it.

Back then hunting was pretty simple, no ohv's, just jeeps and 4x4 trucks. Land owners were very welcoming too.

Good stuff CC- I have all of my hunting and trapping licenses and permits since 16 years old-the 1st year a youth had to buy a license......that would be 1972. There were some good times and hunts .......and trapping in my teens and early 20's was my favorite outdoor activity with small game hunting and bird hunting right there as well.

I remember hunting Wyoming every year from 1992-2000 and we always filled our Deer and Antelope tag as well. There was only one year, I didn't fill a Antelope tag.
