    LRH Group Hunt for elk in the western Wyoming mountains in 2018. We have hunted elk with Non-Typical Outfitters 5 times including in 2017 (this is written before the 2017 hunt dates).

    The following is what I wrote a couple years ago:

    HERE.

    A report on the 2014 hunt is HERE.

    A report on the 2015 hunt is HERE. There you can read about what a factor weather can be in the success of a hunt.

    And HERE is the story of my own hunt in 2015.

    A report on the 2016 hunt is HERE.
    ================================

    To reserve for 2018 you must first indicate in the forum thread your commitment to immediately send in a deposit check to the outfitter. Download the booking form HERE, print out and mail to the outfitter. Indicate on the Booking Form that you are signing up for the 2018 LRH Group Elk Hunt.

    Len-

    I am interested in the 2018 LRH Group Elk Hunt and will send my deposit to the outfitter. As a Wyoming resident I will simply need a resident Elk tag for the hunt area (this was communicated by the outfitter)

    For an out of state resident, is there a particular hunt area we need to apply for?

    Thanks,
    Terry

    Terry,

    It is a General Tag. One point should draw the tag with 100% success for non-residents in the Special Draw.

    Messed this up the first time.
    Sorry about the screwed up post. The name is Todd, not H. Here is the rest of my post. I'm in for 2018. I've never been on a guided hunt, but am looking forward to it. I have completed the form but cannot find a mailing address or instructions on how to make out the check? Thanks for your help. Looking forward to meeting you as well.

    Could someone sanity check my understanding of Wyoming's regs in that: if I buy a preference every year or every other year, I do not lose my accumulated points if I do not actually apply for a license for a few years. I intend to go in two or three years max, but things can and do change my plans.

    If you don't apply for 2 years you loose your accumulated points.

    Deposit mailed! Can't wait to see the results from this year. Hoping that last year's hard winter didn't have too big of an impact on the area's herd.
    Len or Andy, what are do the hunts take place in?

    From this "If a person fails to either apply for a drawing with the preference point option or purchase a preference point during the preference point only application period for two (2) consecutive years, all accumulated points for that species will be lost." I understand I can buy the preference point every other year during October, but not apply for an actual license and still retain my points.
