I am planning an elk hunt for my Myself along with my Dad and two brothers. We are planning to hunt South Central Wyoming around Laramie. We would like to be able to have two Bull tags and two cow tags amongst our group of four. We have never hunted Wyoming before and so we don't have any experience with Wy Game and Fish Dept. trends. It seems risky to apply for two bull tags and two cow tags seperately. It seems like there is a good chance that the cow tags and bull tags may be for different hunt dates once they set the final dates in April. It also seems risky to not apply for the cow tags in the draw. Does anyone have any advice or experience with this? What is the likely hood of getting more cow tags being released for over the counter sales in July and being able to buy 2 cow tags for the specific area that we draw bull tags for? What is the likely hood of being able to pick up a deer tag in July if we can't get two cow tags. Any advice or past experience would be appreciated. We just don't want drop $591 times 4 for 4 bull tags and not be able shoot any cows in the event that we see cows and no bulls.
