The harsh winter probably didn't help either.

    Actually the winter for the most part out there where antelope inhabit has been average, if not easier than normal. There is a pretty high above average snow pack up in most of the mountain areas, but that will be good when it melts and brings some moisture down to the lower areas. Drought has been the real kicker for some time in a lot of areas and the G&F issued a lot of tags the last few years to bring the herds down to suitable levels for the available habitat. Now they are having to cut back with the herds either at that level or below it in a number of areas. Here are the numbers previously issued and what they are now going down to for a bunch of the eastern units (type1 is either sex & type 6 is a doe/fawn):
    Unit:
    7-1-----350 to 300
    7-6-----No Doe Tags
    9-1-----700 to 600
    9-6-----1,250 to 650
    10-1-----350 to 200
    10-6-----500 to 300 & 1 month cut from season
    15-1-----800 to 500
    15-6-----600 to 400
    16-6-----400 to 300
    18-1-----150 to 100
    18-6-----No Doe Tags
    19-6-----150 to 100
    21-1-----750 to 650
    21-6-----600 to 500
    22-6-----900 to 800
    25-1-----900 t0 600
    25-6-----500 to 200
    26-1-----1,200 to 900
    26-6-----800 to 400
    27-1-----400 to 300
    27-6-----150 to 0 on Public Land
    29-1-----150 to 100
    29-2-----550 to 500
    29-6-----200 to 100
    30-1-----500 to 400
    30-6-----200 to 50
    31-1-----350 to 150
    31-6-----200 to 50
    32-1-----400 to 300
    32-6-----400 to 200

    Those are drastic cuts. I guess I will wait and see when the over the counter tags come out.

    Our old area (39) was consolidated along with 40 into 38. Traditionally there has been lots of left over tags in 38. I'm anxious to see how this effects our draw going forward.

    Where on the WY Game & Fish site is this info?
    I'd like to check the area where I applied.

    It's in the public meeting section on the left hand side of the main page. Click on this link and then click on whatever animal you're interested in and you can get into the proposed season dates and quotas from last year and what is proposed for this year. They should go final in about three weeks and then will be posted under the Final Regulations section on the Home page.
