Since other states bordering western Wyoming have introduced seasons they had an alot of non residents coming to Wyoming and with the western side having so much public land it was just to hard on the Animals.We all know most of our winter kill comes from big spring snows. I live is southeastern Wyoming and there are no restrictions, and i won't go out until May 1st. I may missout on the sheds but i want to see mature animals in the fall, not dying in the spring because they kept wasting valuable energy running away from people beeting the brush looking for antlers. Hopefully there will be some left in May. I just use them as lawn decorations.
