Wyoming considers changes to nonresident elk hunting regulations - posted 1 year ago

The 7,250 number is for full price licenses, which include Antlerless.
Increasing that NR quota will do nothing to increase LE licenses for NR hunters. What it will do is increase the number of Special ($1,300) Gen licenses. Those addl licenses will be allocated to 1st, then 2nd choice apps before any remainder goes to the Regular Gen draw. The only way to increase NR LE licenses is for the Dept to increase the total LE quota, and NR will only see 16% of any increase. The Dept can change the 7,250 quota, they can not change the 84/16 split.
