    Some units close quickly. Some units depend HEAVILY on migration. Tough hunts, but the easiest/cheapest way I know of to put a sheep tag in your pocket.

    If you put in during the draw, you will receive the tag.

    Most people go in a week early not 4-5 days...sometimes you'll need a full week to find a ram, sometimes in a week you won't find one.

    So a non-res can put in for the draw and "for sure" get a tag, first try?

    Yep. It might only be good for 48 hours though. That is the catch.

    In the migration units, you might find a ram 2 days before the season opens, but he will be in Wyoming before opening day. It is definitely NOT an easy hunt.

    I know a few people that made it work, but I will continue to roll the dice on limited units myself.

    BB i have been researching this for a couple of years i had it narrowed down to two units until you brought up migration it didn"t come up in any of my research it"s something to think about i didn"t think they be migrating that early i"ve been app in three states for sheep i thought this could be a way to start hunting them until i draw one if i ever do and maybe i"ll get lucky and get one
