I got mine last Saturday, not sure why they are going out staggered but they are.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

it's ok chris.  If it's like mine the link won't work so you can't actually take the survey

I think the most important change they are asking about is weather or not to change the amount you pay at the time you apply.  I asked it to stay the same, pay up front!  If it is cheap like Utah, your odds will go down the drain, and I have no dog in this race, I'm done with applying for Wyoming.  But I have a feeling they will change it, it cost them money to keep it the way it is currently.

Look what happened in Colorado this year on oil apps numbers since they changed from few fronting.  Apps are up 300-500% over last year! I know itíll be different in wyo because you can just buy a point later on but still. Iíd guess you will see lots more apps regardless because thereís always a slim chance in random draw.
Having to front the fees makes most normal people choose what to apply for.  :twocents:

Still waiting on my email for the survey.

I really donít see it effecting odds much either way. A lot of guys buy points until they have what they think itíll take to draw a tag then they actually put in for a hunt.

Right on Bullblaster. More people will apply in the no points random category if they don't have to pay up-front for the tag and lessen ever ones odds. I got real lucky and drew a few tags that way but I had to front the Money for the tag. Same thing happened here in the oils draws and looked what happened to those draw odds. And CO just screwed me with their change in not fronting the tag fee. At 67 yrs old I'm getting out of the points game soon but I feel for the rest of you younger guys.
