Poof! Gone

Hope you weren't dilly-dallying trying to get a Wyoming doe license, because they disappeared FAST! I made the mistake of trying to get a neighboring license to where my girlfriend drew. I did manage to get it, but only bought 1. There were only a dozen of those leftover and when I went for the license with 150 plus leftovers, they were sold out 1 minute later. Dangit. Oh well, I had a plan B, but that means 4 more hours of driving

Curious, but increased hunter

Curious, but increased hunter interest, or decreased number of tags?

Both

It's been incremental over the last few years on both ends. I know I promoted the hell out of these hunts for first western big game hunts, meat hunts and easy hunts. Plus they were cheap. Also, people are more Internet and tech savvy, so they feel more comfortable in areas with poor public access. Combine that with a steady reduction in licenses and the drawings and leftovers are no longer sure things.

Our group got lucky with

Our group got lucky with leftover white tail foe/fawn tags for area 40. You're right, they went fast! My father was online the minute they became available.I could be wrong, but I believe they severely reduced the number of reduced price tags for out of state hunters this year. None of the 6 of us was lucky in the draw for the either mule/white tail doe deer tags. We're fortunate to know a couple of ranchers in the area that have good white tail populations and habitat. We're very relieved to have gotten these tags. Our group isn't getting any younger. This will be our 5th year hunting together and we all look forward to it every year. Can't wait to go!
