    2 nice guys in from MI looking to join forces with a WY resident for some backcountry

    Gentleman and possibly ladies. My friend Adam and I have drawn WY general elk tags and are looking for REAL backcountry adventure. I've hunted areas 89/90/91 with some decent success but am looking into going into some of the real backcountry wilderness GEN tag areas around yellowstone. As you know we cannot access these lands in WY without a guide, and although I have nothing but admiration for guides, but while I'm still young enough to do it, I want to tackle this adventure with my own wits and hard work. A WY resident, free of charge can acquire a resident guide license and away we go! If you or any WY residents you know are interested in joining forces for an adventure like this please let me know. We are normal people with normal lives and families and what the heck... you only live once, and this is something I've always wanted to do. 20 some years ago, on a whim another good friend of mine and I applied for and got tags in NM unit 16A archery (back when drawing great tags was pretty easy for non-residents) and we met a few guys from Silver City NM out in the middle of the Gila Wilderness, we teamed up had a great time, and even helped hump out Mike's (from silver city) first bull elk. Yet today, we are still good friends and remain in touch. Thanks all and everybody have a great 2013! Ty N.

    Is that true a Wyoming resident can become a guide free of charge?

    A resident guide is unpaid and licensed to hunt in that area and is basically just hunting with nonres hunters.

    I'm pretty sure what you said is untrue. Here's a link to the regulations. http://outfitters.state.wy.us/outfitters.aspx

    From what I see, there is a charge, and the guide has to be employed by an outfitter.

    That is the same site I was looking at. I would have to agree.

    It is ok to go into wilderness areas with a resident guide. This is not common knowledge cause the paid outfitters don't want you to know. A resident can get a resident guide license to accompany an out of state hunter in wilderness areas as long as there is no compensation. I hope this link helps.

    Has anybody hunted up near the park in the last couple years? Units 60/70/71/81? I know the wolves had decimated the elk a few years ago, although it seems the elk may be staging a come-back? The wolf tags may be having the desired effect? There's alot of conflicting information out there. I was spoiled in my early elk hunting years hunting 16A in NM where we saw sometimes herds of hundreds per day. We'd really like to get into some elk and have a decent chance. I also heard the elk rarely bugle because it brings the wolves??? Is that true? thanks all!
