Looking into first antelope hunt

I have a few questions on planning my first antelope hunt. Are there any states that offer tags over the counter or are they all by lottery? Also is this the type of hunt that can be done by yourself or is it better to start off with a outfitter?

Wyoming is all lottery even for residents. You can do a self guided hunt real easy in Wyoming. Wyoming has a point system for non residents with a low number of points needed to get a license.

Do you know what the draw rate is like on the doe tags? Since it would be my first antelope hunt I don't think I would be looking for a buck.

Doe tags in some areas of Wyoming are first come first serve after the initial lottery has taken place. Keep in eye out and you can score one for 32 bucks. There's a catch, make sure you do your homework and research the areas that have plenty of public access. Otherwise you end up donating your money.

If you don't draw a tag in the lottery you can buy a tag (usually a doe/ fawn) on first come basis when the leftover tags go on sale. Just know where you want to go hunting in Wyoming. For non resident it will cost more $48.00 reduced doe fawn tag.

WyoElk2Hunt...did the prices go up? I have bought leftovers the past 2 seasons and paid $34 a tag for Nonresident. I just double checked my receipt from last year to confirm. I do know with leftover tags you do not have to pay the $14 application fee. That is for lottery tags only.
