    My guess would be that the residents know the area better and may have access to more private land to hunt. Stats can be somewhat deceiving in units with lots of private land because alot of the animals could have been harvested on private land that most hunters dont have access to and the public land success rate would be much lower then the over all success rate.

    DO the Wia's stay more or less the same year to year?

    Most probably dont change much but land owners could take their property out or add their property so its hard to say. I dont know the details on WY's program.

    There has been talk with the money shortage that some expiring WIA's wouldn't be renewed. I would call the Game and Fish to make sure.

    What am wondering is why the harvest rates are so low? NR's had about 50% success last year. Residents however, were over 90 % any thoughts?
    ***An educated guess would be that most of the antelope population is probably on private property where they don't allow hunting by outsiders for a fee and only residents are hunting them. I don't know what else would skew the success rates like that.
