Question about Wyoming draw

Before I send in for the Wyoming antelope draw could someone tell me how the different choices are picked.

Do they go though everyone's 1st choice before going to 2nd choice or

When they pick yours do they go through all 3 choices then before going to the next person.

I guess what i'm saying is could someone's third choice be picked before my first choice is looked at.

Re: Question about Wyoming draw

For non-residents, as it has been explained to me it is my belief that ;

The preference point drawing is conducted first.......all first choice w/max points draw first...draw is continued until "PP"quota is filled...based on points.....Any first choice that is not drawn in the preference point drawing becomes a first choice again in the random drawing....All choices not drawn in the "PP" drawing are transferred to the random draw with the remaining quota.

The quota in the preference point drawing does not include 10% of the total (non-resident) quota which automatically goes into the random draw.

The random draw is compiled of 10% of the total quota plus any remainders from the preference point drawing....Again all first choices are drawn first....That is why you actually have two chances on your first choice; one with preference points and one in the random draw if you do not draw (although your odds are greatly diminished)....

Answer to your question: All first choice tags are drawn first in each draw, but the preference point drawing precedes the random draw.....

This is the way that I understand it...Correct me if I am wrong...Hope this helps..
Randy

Re: Question about Wyoming draw

thanks, that's how i thought it worked, but it's been several years since i've put in for a draw in Wyoming and they didn't have preference point system then.

Re: Question about Wyoming draw

What area where you planning on for your first choice? Some area have a lot of private land and the drawing odd are 100%. Example area 42 and 43. Then some areas have easy access to public land and drawing odds are lower. Example 46 and 47. The 100% areas are good areas but access is a pain!!!

Probably 72 as it looks right now. Looking at 32, 70, 71, 46, 48, 52. As you can tell, I don't have much of a clue........ Most of those are area's i've at least been in.

Re: Question about Wyoming draw

In my error I stated 10% goes to the random draw....See my post in HELP 2009 wyoming draw odds

Actually there are 4 non-resident draws when you include the NR Special draw (you actually pay almost double for the tag).....

40% of all available NR tags go to the special draw.....75% of those tags go to the special non-resident preference point draw and 25% to the NR special random draw.

The remaining 60% of total available NR tags are divided likewise....75% to the non-resident preference point draw and 25% to the NR random draw.....

That means actually 15% of all available tags go into the NR random draw...

Sorry if I confused anybody....The G&F makes it really hard to understand sometimes....

Good luck in the draw,
Randy

Re: Question about Wyoming draw

Before they started the Pref Points on antelope, the drawing odds were pretty plain and simple. I person could look back a couple years and see an actual % success in the draw.

They are quite confusing the way it's displayed now. They're gonna do it however they do it, but it sure would be nice to be able to look at a glance and see a % success for given area. That way you'd all know if it's worth doing the pref point or special for that area. No point in an area that's always been 100% in the random.
