ALERT: New bill will severely impact nonresident hunters in WY -
posted 1 month ago
It seems like what most Wyoming residents are upset about in this feed is the ability to “cheat” the draw. Some are saying Wyoming is just following other western states. Here’s a simpler solution that won’t impact your economy, get rid of party applications. Montana has very few limited elk units and mostly general units, so it makes sense for the state to cap non residents at 10% for LE. Wyoming has zero general units for non residents. They may say general, but if it takes 3-4 bonus points to draw, is it really a general unit? Sounds like a lot of folks are mad about YouTube and social media, which really means your upset cause how does some out of stater kill bigger bulls and bucks then you? Eastmans hunting journals, a Wyoming publication has been at the forefront of how to western hunting info for something like 70 years? Every year they take people to Montana to shoot mule deer and tell the world, any buddy can get a general tag and do this. So thanks for that Wyoming, our small town businesses appreciated it. Doesn’t seem to be reciprocal though. You chase em out now, you’ll never get em back. You lose tags now you’ll never get em back. You cut it down for a few, they’ll keep cutting it till there’s none. Careful what you wish for.
Well if this goes through, would love to see my home state of Montana and other western states who aren’t opposed to non resident hunters shut down access for Wyoming residents and Idaho residents. If your state doesn’t want to play ball then don’t come to mine.
