Please see link below. Looks like there has been some modification to allow for youth/immediate family to apply with applicants that have more preference points to help this situation. Should start some dialogue, positive and negative.
I am for a preference point system for WY residents for elk, deer, and antelope. There are valid points both for and against and I've listened and continue to listen to both sides. As some of you know, I've been extremely lucky through both preference point drawings (sheep) and random drawings (mtn goat). I've not had the best of luck for elk, deer, or antelope but have had some great opportunities. However, it is my hope, that our state agencies manage for quality herds, full carrying capacities, and provide the best possible habitat for our animals and that helps all of us win with more tags for all areas of this great state.
Can't wait to read all of the comments on this one. Good luck to all of the NR elk applicants!
