Wyoming biologists forecast probable winter kill -
posted 1 month ago
I wouldn't worry about this year and hunting in Wyoming if you are looking for a pronghorn buck. The biggest hit, I have seen in the area has been the antelope fawns. The pronghorn bucks look like they will be fine. The problem of this winter will really be felt in 2-4 years as so many fawns are looking unhealthy or have passed away. If the Doe/Fawn tags are reduced, it may be a wash moving forward.
Deer are interesting. They went into the winter is really good shape. Deer that didn't migrate in time, are probably gone. The deer that did migrate should be in ok shape heading into the spring. I would still pull the trigger on region G or a max point LQ hunt if I was a NR.

There are wolves. Very few Grizzlies in the area, if any. The northern portion of the area probably is a bit more likely to have Griz, but it is the southern portion of the overall known range of the bears.

The wilderness is in the wind river range. I would get a GPS with a chip just to make sure you know where you are at.
With snowfall the last week of the type 1 season can be great.

Mike, I agree with everything that you said. It is not Wyoming game and fish that is at fault, it is the fault of the prosecution in this case.
Robert, I'm not a lawyer, but punishing someone before their guilt is cemented in court I believe would open the state open to a lawsuit. It is one thing to look absolutely guilty and another to have it documented in court. I think Game and Fish hands are tied until the verdict. The tag was drawn and not given by the department of game and fish. I am not sure if there is a law that states if you are accused/suspected/in court for a wildlife crime, then you an ineligible for the draw. There is one if you are convicted. It is a bad situation and given the evidence that is presented leaves little doubt of a guilty verdict.
