Wyoming archery season info

I would like to do a wyoming archery muley hunt, but i haven't been able to find much info on archery seasons on the game and fish site. i read one paragraph in the nonresident regs that said that the seasons usually open september 1st in most areas and that more information is usually available around May 5. I spent a while searching for more info but didn't have any luck. anyways, maybe one of you guys can point me in the right direction. i'm going to buy a preference point this year and then hopefully i will get an app. in for 2011 season. thanks for the help!

Re: Wyoming archery season info

That's basically right. There are a few archery only licenses, but for the most part the general license can be used during archery season. They don't set their season dates until the time of the draw, so that likely isn't available in the regs booklet. It's page 10 of the Nonresident application booklet, but remember that nonresidents can hunt wilderness without a guide in wyoming.

I believe Ex left off the 't. Nonresidents can't hunt the wilderness without a guide, if you didn't know chipmunksniper. That was a disappointment to me when I found that out. Mad

Re: Wyoming archery season info

Yeah i'm going to try and find some non-wilderness backcountry areas to backpack into. Was looking into Region's G and H. so basically i have to apply for a general tag, and then assume that there will be an archery season? just seems odd that there is hardly any info whatsoever on archery seasons in the regs. unless i'm missing something obvious! i read that there are special archery seasons so i know they exist, maybe i'll make a phone call down there and try to get some more solid info. thanks for the replies!

Re: Wyoming archery season info

I didn't see any special archery deer only licenses. Most are elk only. Look for the type 9 licenses in the application books, but I didn't see any. And yes, I meant to say you can't hunt the wilderness areas
