WSAs are areas designated by the US Dept of the Interior BLM and have nothing to do with the Wilderness areas designated by the State of Wyoming where a nonresident needs a guide.

What's the purpose in making a non-resident use a guide in a wilderness area?? Is it just for the money?

Re: wyoming wilderness study area's hunting?

It's strictly to help the guide business and for no other reason because unless you are carrying a gun in them a nonresident can go anywhere they want with no restrictions! It has been challenged in the Courts and Wyoming won since a state sets the rules for hunting and fishing within it's boundaries, even though all those Wilderness areas are all Federal National Forests and not State of Wyoming land. What is really crazy is that a person who has lived there all their lives and knows one like the back of his hand still can't go hunting if they move from Wyoming and then have to buy a nonresident license.

I know a lot of guides only guide part time and often in a state they are not a resident of--so my question: Is it then OK for a non resident guide working in WY to guide a non-resident hunter?
