I did a little research over the last couple days on tag allocation here in Wyoming between R and NR, and here's what I discovered. I've always been told that 25% of tags are allocated to the NR hunting populous, which turns out to be the case but just for limited quota tags only. When I investigated the Deer tag allocation statewide, what I found was that there were around 40,000-45,000 deer tags issued from the numbers I was able to find. Of that, 19,500 were given to NR with 17,500 of those being the regional general tags. My estimate for the number of General tags purchased by R hunters, based on data from GF and an educated guess on OTC sales, is around 15,000. This data goes a long ways in explaining the degradation of the hunting experience I've seen in General hunting areas over the last decade solely based on the animals being over pressured by both mother nature and hunters, R and NR alike. Since the R license sales should remain relatively stable over a period of time, I'm extremely surprised at the number of NR tags that are being issued in an effort to boost revenue (a guess) with little regard for the health of regional populations.
