    Reg H Special Draw 2nd choice odds?

    Hello. I am new to the forum. I am a nonresident, and have been hunting WY for about 5 years now, only in Reg Y. I have always had good luck finding deer as I am not afraid of getting off the road and putting miles on, but would like to try a different area looking for bigger deer. I only have 2 PP. I was thinking of applying in the Special Draw this year for area 89 type 1 as my first choice {knowing I probably won't get} and trying for Reg H on my second choice. So I can retain my points. My question is, does anyone know the draw odds on Reg H as a second choice in the NR Special Draw? Any help would be appreciated.

    Look at the preference points statistics on the WY Game and Fish site at this address http://gf.state.wy.us/web2011/hunting-1001301.aspx

    Thanks. I already had looked here, maybe I am reading it wrong. It shows all of the Special Reg H went out to first choice applicants. Although in the MRS of Eastmans they say it is possible as a second choice option. Am I missing something?

    Just look in the random draw for 2nd choice odds. H was 8% last year 2nd choice. Not alot better then the odds on 89 first chioce, but you could definitely draw Y as your third choice if you wanted to try it.

    Look at the Special random draw. There were a few tags left in it for 2nd choice

    Trying to get H as a buddy should have an elk tag, and wants to try out there. I am not counting on me getting my elk tag so looking for options for deer without burning the points I do have. 8% is not very good odds though. Is H worth burning 2 points on? Any advise?

    Your welcome! I have no first hand experience with H. I think it could be a good hunt but like most regions scouting would probably be very helpful.

    Will be making a scouting trip before season. If I get the tag!
    Long ways to drive and scout with no tag. Just fishing for advise from someone who has been there before burning points. Thanks

    H has some big deer for guys who can draw a limited entry hunt, but for general season, Guy only has it rated as marginal.
