The harsh winter probably didn't help either.

Re: What area in Wyoming is best for DIY Antelope Hunt 2014

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.
