Has anybody heard if the WY G&F intends to release the moose/sheep/goat/bison results earlier than the May 8th date listed? Typically they release a few days early, but I don't see anything posted on the website yet.

Stig, I called the G&F office today and the spokesperson said maybe 2 weeks...what with internet applications and such time saving tools at their disposal, I figured they'd be posted sooner. Intrest rates being so low, well; maybe they need to hold that money a bit longer for more intrest money.

I don't understand why they wait to post. Shorten the amount of time you have to apply, post results sooner. You still don't have to give the money back. Keep it till June. Just tell me if I got my tag.

You might not care but a lot of other folks care about that interest. Especially the party with the money:)

The G&F is early with virtually all draw results. Considering its a government agency, that's actually pretty impressive. They won't post anything before 8am.

You won't have to go very far from the road to get a cow in 38, when you start to plan send me a PM, I'll help you out.

Kentucky, I deer hunted that same area in 2011 if you want some pointers where we saw moose. You should be able to get a cow pretty close to a road.

Hunting buddy and I both drew Moose tags in the same unit as nonresidents. Hoping to stick my Moose with a bow but if I don't all move into rifle season of course. This is a great time for me to have a Moose tag as I also will be retired the middle of June. Great when a plan comes together.

Thanks! I think she can pretty much count on hunting. She is pretty excited.

I have a friend that drew a very low number. Drelk (here on Eastman's) told me that you can call the Jackson office (307)-733-2321, they will have the tag numbers. I just called and they said they are expecting an email from the biologist soon and that if you call this afternoon, they should have the numbers.

Here is what I found online from the harvest statistics from prior years:

2011: 84 resident bison bull hunters, and 18 non-resident bison bull hunters.

2010: 62 bull bison taken by residents, and 12 bull bison taken by non-residents

No, but since the non-resident tags went up, resident tags had to have gone up too. If there are 22 non-resident tags as DR said, there has to be around 100 resident tags. Your wife's number is less than half of that.

HayHay98
05-14-2013, 03:37 PM
Stig87, she should be a shoe in for a tag. Everything I've heard the quota level should remain at the level it was last year. My wife drew a cow tag in 2009 but was unable to harvest a cow. It was 27% success that year due to adequate forage and lack of snow. We saw a lot of lone and paired bulls but the cows stayed in large herds. This is a great hunt and I'd be happy to point you in the direction of some areas that were productive. A good friend of mine killed a bull last year with his pistol. Congrats again on a great tag! Good Luck!

It states in the regulations that if you get called to see if you want to pay for the bison tag, and you decline, that tag will go to the next person in line. Thats why it is called the priority list. The lowest numbers have priority to buy the tag before the higher numbers. Mayber this is just for residents and not NR.
