ALERT: New bill will severely impact nonresident hunters in WY - posted 1 month ago

Thanks for the update. The thought of this bill passing had me all worked up. Wyoming has always been a go to state for the non-resident hunter, but this bill would have changed that. The question is still out there as to how the new draw dates are going to affect things.

Thanks for the reply. I talked to a couple of the game wardens down in that neck of the woods who confirmed just what you said. Access to 108 can be tricky because of the checkerboarding. You need to stay on public roads or get permission to cross over onto private property - for which the landowners are charging a hefty trespass fee.

The one problem with 63 is hunting pressure. They increased the number of tags last year which resulted in increased pressure. Oh well, welcome to public land hunting and choose the time you hunt wisely.

Thanks again, the info you provide through Filtering 2.0 is invaluable.

I've narrowed it down to two units (63 Type 2 and 108) for next year, given my points and drawing odds, trophy potential, percentage public land, previous harvest success. My concern is the layout of the public land for each. Looking at the private land map overlay, the public and private land in unit 108 is checkerboarded between the two, rather than large tracts of contiguous public land, so property boundaries and animal retrieval may be a problem. In the Type 2 Unit 63 hunt, you're restricted to the land east of Buzzard road. Unit 63 is a large unit, so being restricted to the land east of Buzzard road still may leave you considerable public ground to hunt. What are your thoughts?
