Drew WY General tag as my second choice

Just looked online and my entire group drew our WY Gen elk tags which was a big suprise because this was our second choice. This means we got a preference point and a Gen tag. Am I correct in thinking that this means almost everyone applied for limited areas and thats why we got our second choice or does the draw work diffrently in WY than CO? Cant wait to chase some elk.

Whiteatlas, Welcome to BGH! and congrats to you and your friends on drawing your elk tags. Did you apply for the Special General tag or the Regular General tag?

We just applied for the regular tag, not the special tag.

Wow! I didn't realize that so many people applied for Limited Entry Units. 22,000 people had elk preference points and they usually only give out 3500 regular general season elk tags. Last year before the pp's, the odds of drawing a regular general NR elk tag was 41% and the year before 39.39%.

Congrats Whiteatlas! It will be interested to see the drawing odds, when they come out. What area of Wyoming will you be hunting?
