ALERT: New bill will severely impact nonresident hunters in WY -
posted 1 month ago
Chad B is right on. This had to happen and will continue to happen. Supply and demand. Too much demand, they cut supply, prices go up. Pretty simple.
But I do agree about the economy, if that tanks it might reset this a bit.
Mark A, Wyoming is not mostly LE. They have many general units and offer 10,000 general elk tags to NRs. That is way too many. I hope that number gets capped too. And I am a NR.
And all of you talking about a drop in hunter numbers need to look around next time you go hunting. Never had there been more people hunting. You all know it. Impossible to find a spot, impossible to draw a tag. More hunters than ever. WY has to do this, they are being overrun. They don’t want to be like Colorado. And then we have all the YouTube and internet stars pimping out elk hunting and making it even worse.
Surely you all must have seen this coming. Every western state is doing this and I don’t blame them. Too many hunters, too easy to apply, too much easy information from GoHunt and other sources. This was inevitable. The wildlife resources and public lands can only take so much pressure and we have hit the tipping point. Too many hunters.
