    Wyoming Auction Tags

    What do you guys think of Wyoming auctioning off the Governor's tags? I personally think it's great. The 2014 Gov's moose tags are selling really well and should bring in a record amount of $ for moose research, habitat improvement etc.

    The 5 Wyoming moose tags should bring in $125-145K this year. I think all states should have tags like these. Moose, just like game all around the world needs to have value in order to survive. Most of the money derived from these tags goes directly towards projects benefiting Wyoming's moose which we all know are in a world of hurt these days.

    It great to get that kind of money devoted to Wyoming's moose, especially the NW corner. Not sure that money will help those moose unless it's used to kill some wolves.

    Turn that money into wolf bounty money... best possible use from the moose side of the fence.

    I'd like to see just where the G&F will employ these tag funds. If it's for the benefit of the moose population, all well and good. Just so it isn't used to hire a new fish biologist or produce another TV show.

    They probably have to give half for wolf studies!

    Giving a bounty on wolves would be some serious ammo for the pro wolf crowd. If the G&F were to cleverly employ these funds they might do the following: Give wolf hunters in and around the wolf trophy zone a hotline or webpage to visit on latest wolf sitings or pack locations, especially in critical moose habitat. Of course funds could also be used to help biologists further understand how to help moose, such as range improvements and habitat preservation measures.
