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

Changes like these seem to be more and more common these days with South Dakota, Idaho, Colorado, and now Wyoming looking to change non-resident opportunities. I can sympathize with residents in these states as there seems to be more interest coming from non-residents than in previous years. I think it is a slippery slope in the long run though. If it becomes difficult to get tags in other states they are losing a lot of people who will help advocate for them when push comes to shove. This would give people from out of state very little reason to help advocate for public lands or other issues (predators or hunting bans) that come up from time to time. It also gives me a lot of concern for the future. With less tags and higher costs it will limit participation to those who can afford it. I think for new and young hunters there is going to be little incentive to put into draws that continue to get more difficult and cost more.
