    The suggestion was to switch residency in time to qualify for residency in the 2015 season. Thanks for the clarification.

    The first things I would do are:

    1. PM The one guy who responded to your post that has actually established residency in WY
    2. day one in WY make a stop at the local game and fish office and ask them these same questions.
    3. Contact the local Game Warden and introduce yourself as a new hunter in the area. I am a NR hunting in WY, and in a few areas have gotten to know the warden well enough that he will stop and BS if he sees me or my truck. Nobody knows the game or the landowners in your area better than these guys.

    Good luck, I envy you.

    You can get a WY driver license the day you move into WY. That will enable you to apply as a Res next year. Its not that difficult, aside from dealing with all the paperwork you need to bring to the DMV... Biggest thing is, if you were to go visit where your from DO NOT buy resident fishing or hunting license for next year, because then you will not be allowed to claim resident license in two states in the same year.

    Yep, he can still sneak in for next year as a resident if he establishes residency before 5/31. That will allow him to apply for resident licenses in 2015 since they have until 5/31, unlike the NR application deadline dates of 1/31 for elk and 3/15 for deer and antelope. Sorry for the confusion I probably created because I was thinking of the NR dates when I made that post saying he'd have to wait until 2016.
