Default Wyoming nonresident elk tag

Bought an elk hunt in the Thorofare Region at a local RMEF banquet. Will need to draw a tag (will start applying in Jan 06). Any advise on how to draw quickly.

That is a general area. Odds are better than limited quota areas. Also, the tag that costs more some times has better odds. Go to the G&F site and do some research, make sure the area you bought the hunt in is general. Your outfitter should be able to help you.

Between the wolves and bears the elk numbers are down, the G&F won't admit it.

Wyoming has a general special tag that has awesome draw odds. You pay $200 more, but great odds. As RandyA mentioned, check with the guide on the tag you need, then apply for the special and you should be set. Also, Wyoming is going to a point system next year on Elk, Mulies and Antelope. Keep this in mind if you don't draw year #1, etc.

Last elk tag I had in Wyoming was 97. I apply every year for general tags or the high dollar tag and still no tag, had some deer tags.

Good Luck

Chopper, I booked an elk hunt in the Thorofare this year and drew a tag the first year I applied. The regular non-resident tag is $481. The Special Elk tag is $881. The difference being, the odds of getting drawn. Your odds in the regular draw are about 20 %. The odds in the special draw are about 60-75%. These are for General area tags. Good luck on the draw next year. I'm not sure what the new point system will do to odds then.
