Unit 45 - Type 1 / Type 9 Question
I've got 4 NR point and I'm considering apply for a special type 9 tag for unit 45.
I've been doing some research, but have not been able to find on the WY website how early can type 1 hunters start archery hunting unit 45?
Do all limited quota areas that have type 9 tags allow Type 1 archers to start at the same time or does this vary by unit?
If I was to go for a unit 45 type 9 tag, would want to hunt the middle of Sept, but might change that strategy depending on when the type 1 archers can start.
Thanks ahead for the help.
Type 9 opens on Sept 1st, and Type 1 archers can't hunt until Sept 15th.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Is that historically the start dates for all type 1 / type 9 tags, or are there different start dates for different units?
I found something in the regs that said the archery seasons for type 1 type hunts are called special archery seasons and that the dates aren't set until May....
I just looked in last years regulations, I am not sure if it is this way every year. Most of your type 1 tags open for archery on Sept 1st, I believe if the area also has a type 9 tag, then type 1 holders start the 15th. That is what I got looking at my regulations from last year.
The archery start date for type 1 tags varies in units that have a type 9 tag. Certain units don't allow the type 1 tags to hunt the archery season, while others, such as 35,36,37, 41,42 and 45 allow the type one tag holders to archery hunt on sept 15th.
You are going to have a better moon the first half of September, and less hunters.
