    You need to make some decisions on what you're going to do. You asked me about Colorado.

    Keep in mind in WY as a non-res if you want to go into a wilderness area you are required to use an outfitter.

    What an absolutely lame law. I hate when the gov. treats us like children and thinks we need our hand held everywhere. Same as Alaska. They say it is to protect you, but if you are just fishing or hiking, you can go anywhere. Guess its just us hunters that they believe don't have the intelligence to be by ourselves. Or maybe they don't trust us. Or maybe, just maybe these are laws to line the pockets of some select outfitters out there that had some political pull. BS from every angle though.

    Darktimber...what you said in your last sentence. Outfitters with pull in the legislature. You can go fishing or camping or birdwatching...or playing "pocket-pool" in the wilderness any time you want...but you NEED an outfitter to hunt! It's all about money!

    If you decide to try and head to MT make sure you get your application in on time, and do your research about the area you want to hunt. Here are a couple links to the MT Fish Wildlife and Parks were you can check out harvest statistics and draw statistics. Good luck.

    I'm with Darktimber...it's all a scam to make nonresidents spend more money, as if the tag cost, travel cost, food, lodging and supplies, etc. are not enough already. They know if they make you spend thousands on an outfitter, that money will be taxed and will also be staying in their state. I guess when you step from NF to wilderness things must get really dangerous out there. BS
