From: Lineman21

Had 9 points going in. Put in for the special for a unit that took 11 last year. No dice. Thought maybe that price hike would deter a few.

From: Nyati

Didn’t draw with max points. But I was trying for a certain tag .

From: wytex

Gotta say hope we draw a LQ area this year, sounds like general areas will be busy.

Congrats and good luck folks!!

From: LUNG$HOT

No love in Wyoming. Applied for a limited tag in the regular draw so not surprised.

Success on the General, finally!

Been a rough couple years, chasing the point creep.

From: nmwapiti

4 points was enough in the special pool for the South region. Should be some interesting reading when the draw stats come out.

From: fastflight

Unsuccessful cow elk. Last year was about 30% chance so not suprised.

16-May-24
No draw for me...

From: jordanathome
16-May-24
13 pts got me type 9 non res in unit 11. Super pumped as my buddy had a hell of a hunt there 2 years ago and I am hopeful WY elk are not as hard for me to kill as CO elk. LOL

From: KSBOW

S Region was 100 percent with 2 points in the special

From: cnelk

^^^ that is correct. Disregard the last line of the above post.

From: KHNC
16-May-24
Well damn Scoot! Me and EMG got GEN with 5. How many points did you have this time? We went regular draw.

From: Nyati
16-May-24
With max points regular draw I had 1/6 chance for tag I wanted but didn’t get. If I would have forked over the 2K and went special I would have had 1/3 chances. But dang, 2K for a tag, but it rearranged the draw structure they wanted for reg/special, at least for this year

From: Scoot
16-May-24
Congrats Kenny! I bet you guys will have a blast! I had 9 points, but I was after a particular unit. No love this year! AZ, NM, and WY all hate me!

From: Brotsky
16-May-24
Nyati, the rearranging depends upon the area. The area I hunt actually went up in the special and the general stayed flat this year.

From: Nyati
16-May-24
Brotsky, yeah , I figure you’re right. It’s a guessing game. It’ll probably switch around again next year

Real quick glance at the odds and in some areas there was very little advantage to being in the special vs the regular draw. I am sure it was even upside down for some units.

I burned 13 points on a $2000 elk tag... glad that's over. Ed F

Drew LE.

From: Mule Power

Unsuccessful. I’ll be on a camping/scouting mission with the little lady come August. She’s as excited as I would’ve been if I drew the license. lol

16-May-24
No LE for me… but I’ll get to pass some 6points to fill a reduced price cow tag. Still a blast being in the elk woods!

16-May-24
Nada for me.

From: Jeck66
16-May-24
I'll be damned... we pulled unit 7 type 1 on the random draw! I was tired of banking points and figured we'd roll the dice. Somebody has to get lucky in the random, except it is never us.

We were already unsuccessful in 3 states this year for drawing elk, so I had written off elk hunting again this year. Time to start making plans!

Anyone willing to share insight on unit 7 through a PM? I have intel on unit 45 I would be willing to share in exchange!

From: KHNC
17-May-24
Wow thats impressive. 7 and 11 are crazy high in point requirements nowadays!

From: Jaquomo
17-May-24
I had a good run with three tags in 6 years, but not this year. My CO unit is 50-50 now for residents with zero points, thanks to Huntin' Fool publicizing it as a "sleeper" unit. I hope this isn't my first season in 50 of not bowhunting elk....

Happy to draw a RP cow tag in my favorite Wyo area.

From: jordanathome

Lou.....you are always welcome in my camp.....I need a cook and a guide....... I hope you have a great season in the face of challenges.......I trust you will because you always do.

From: Jaquomo
17-May-24
Thanks, Jordan. This year will be your year! Let's stay in touch in case I don't draw CO. BTW, I have a camo MAGA hat so no worries about the red possibly scaring animals!

From: Finnman
17-May-24
I almost applied in 11 but decided to try 120 instead. I drew the tag too. Hope it's worth 14 points.

From: c3
17-May-24
nada for me, but I've hunted wyoming elk in 2020, 2021 and 2023 so I can't complain :)

good luck to all who drew !!!

Successful for Unit 23 in Wyoming. Took 12 preference points to draw. I was 54 when I started buying preference points and I will be 68 when I go hunting in Sept. Cannot wait for this bucket list trip with the bow! Good Luck to all!

From: 808bowhunter

We learned a lesson the hard way. Of all years my group wanted a WY tag and didn’t get one, this year we didn’t want one and got it. We put in as a party of 3 but once we found out one of us drew a great tag in Az, the party leader withdrew the app. Everything the leader does to modify affect every one in group, but withdrawing is not modifying I guess. Ended up drawing a random general tag. Now we gotta figure out how to squeeze more time off with out affecting our commitment to killing a big bull in AZ

Sounds like a good problem to have 808 :)
