    Wyoming Bison

    So with the new rule this year having to front the $$$ for Bison, who in NRes world is still going to put in? I put in over the weekend. The word is there's going to be a lot of NRs drop out because of this??? Hope this will help the odds a little. , I need all the help I can get.

    PS - tried to find out on the Wyo g & f site just how many have put in the past and can't find it. Seems I've seen this before.

    With the ranking system, I know that the letter you received from the GF would tell you that you were number xxxx out of 3000 telling you the total number of applicants for that type. When you looked up your draw results, it would just show your assigned ranking and not the total number of applicants. Other than the letter received, I've not seen anything (online) that told you the number of people that applied. I assume after this year's draw, they'll start posting the stats like the other species.

    The only difference I can see would be that now if you draw the tag you either go on the hunt or eat the tag where previously if you got called you could drop out and not lose much of anything. I really don't know why anyone who put in for it in the past would do so if they didn't have the cash and want to go on it if they got called.

    You'd be surprised how many people that were drawn and decided to not buy the license for one reason or another. Though it wasn't from lack of persuasive tactics by me, I personally know of three people that did this in the last 5 years.

    I will admit I have applied for tags that I kinda hoped I didnt draw because of what they costs but If I had drawn I would have paid for the tag some way or another and went hunting!
