Re: Antelope tag and hunt help, please?
Booking with an outfitter is not required at all.
Most questions can be answered on the WY G&F website. Tags can also be purchased after the draw by both OTC or on the website. If you prefer to do it the old fashioned way, the G&F can send you a non resident application booklet.
The antelope draw odds and amount of leftover tags vary with the hunt area in question. Areas with alot of public land are usually harder draw odds and may require some points. Areas that are mostly private land usually have alot better odds, but you may have to pay a trespass fee.
Deer tags are similar, but some hunt areas are "limited quota".....meaning there are only so many tags offered for that area. Other areas are "General Liscense"..........no quota. The General areas are better draw odds, but the bigger bucks are usually in the limited quota areas, generally speaking of course.
