I actually like Wyoming's system and think it is just fine. If you don't have many points, you can apply for units that have a random draw tag and so you have a chance there. I guess if you dont like their system though, you can just apply in other states like you said.

Everyone bashes Wyoming but SOMEBODY will have to draw the tags in 30 years. Another thing I don't think many people know is that A LOT of people are bailing out of the game. 30-50 people in every point pool are leaving every year.
This is a good point to consider for those in their early 30's and younger. A lot of the baby boom generation is retiring right now. They are all in their late 50's or early 60's. In 10 to 15 years their points won't matter any more because they will be too old to use the tag. The apps should drop dramatically as the pool of people with the time and money to sheep hunt decreases.

I saw on 5 K Outfitters they are giving a free hunt to a lucky someone in the military. Worth checking out. Dump the points. Don't need them for mt goats and pronghorn.
