The 400 tags was overall tags given out, the 309 tags was just the resident tags issued if you were to look at the non-resident draw odds it would probably show 91 tags. I believe that for limited quota areas they issue around 75% to residents 25% to non-residents, unless there is not a high resident demand then they will issue more to the non-residents.
Not to be rude, but when I try to give advice, I research what I say. In 2011 deer area 102 issued 298 resident tags, 7 non resident regular tags, 10 non resident special tags, for a total of 309. Its all on the WY game and fish website. It may not be like this for all areas.
