Default Wyoming draw results

Elk draw is up.

Who's hunting elk in Wyoming and I'll bump this up for deer and pronghorn later.

Leftover list out in June, don't give up yet.

Elk numbers are way high in Wyoming and right now mountains are looking pretty good. Another good snow coming this weekend.
Fires popping up in Colorado already though. Pray for NM if you have a tag there.

Who's hunting elk in Wyoming this year?

Wish I was. Wyoming was my last hope. Looks like its CO for me. But with only 2 points in the Gen Reg drawing I knew my chances were slim.

No OTC for NR in Wyoming, helps keep our hunting pretty good all over the state.

Leftover list for that draw comes out in June for the July draw.

I guess technically some may become OTC in July after the last draw. After the leftover draw any licenses not drawn go OTC.

Beware of some cow elk areas, Area 6 for example, is mostly private and very hard to fill those licenses. Access is very hard to get even though there are too many elk in that area. There will be hundreds of those tags left in Area 6.

Do you know if there are typically any really late season cow tags leftover? I know that means winter range which is a lot of times private land but with a baby due in October, a really late season hunt may be my only option at a possible elk hunt this year.

Got lucky and drew a Unit 7 Type 1 tag that I had very low odds for… planning on getting an archery stamp and hunting sometime in September… most likely look into an outfitter.

There will be some Type 4 cow tags left over but they are full price licenses. They usually go late in season.
Area 7 will have some and maybe area 11. 11-4 will have some private access late we have been told by G&F folks and a landowner.

I'm betting a few Type 4 cow tags will be left scattered across the state, any type 6 or 7 cow tags will have access issues.

Are whitetails and mule deer draw-only too?

Sorry to veer off course. I know that's not elk related...

My brother in law just inherited property/house on Bridger National Forest. He's say they used to hunt elk there growing up all the time. Anyone know how I would go about applying for a non-resident draw tag for that area? He said I could use the house if I found out how to get a tag?

I thought I would finally draw with my 10 pref points since that's what it took last year. Double the amount of people with 11 applied this year, so no tag for me.

I heard Wyoming has cut tag allocation to NR to 10% is that true? I have 3 points and didn't draw this year for General Elk.

As usual it takes another point category higher to draw a general tag this year….

You can purchase preference points in July, correct?

Why not try OTC in Colorado or Wyoming? Not always good deal to try draw. May take some years to get drawn, and they miss out on a nice hunt. We don't get younger waiting to be drawn

Yes, but you have until end of May to apply for them. Some areas are either species and some have specific whitetail seasons later than muleys.
Whitetail only licenses are Type 3 deer licenses.

Elk draw for NR has happened but some leftover may be available in June to apply for.
Do you know which town is closest to his cabin ? We were in the Bridger forest last fall.
If the house or cabin is on NF land it will be a lease. The house can be privately owned but the land will belong to the NF on a long term lease.

The house/property is in Smoot and it borders the forest. So I guess I need to figure out what "unit" that area is considered and apply online as a non resident for a draw?

Looks like is area 91. It has a general season and a LQ one that takes quite a few PP. General would be good on the other side of the range too, east side.
Looks like a migration area too.
Shouldn't be a big grizz issue yet there.

Deer iis going to be Region G and well known for big bucks. It take a ton of PP to draw though.
Some whitetail tags over there though that may be easier to draw.

Buy a PP for deer this July, and elk if you want to try and draw a general.
The whitetail tag can be had with 1 PP I think.

Draw is still open for deer this year, closed for elk and I looked-should not be any leftover elk licenses for that area. Check in June though when the leftover list comes out.

Thank you so much for this information Wytex. Gives me a good starting point. Will see if I can apply for the deer tag so I have enough time to plan the trip. There isn't anyway I would be able to just up and go right now if I got drawn for a leftover elk tag. Thanks again!
