I can't seem to find what the official word is on the changes to the Wyoming elk application and draw for 2020. What did they decide on?

Get ready for long wait for refund ......

From: WapitiBob

NR apps Jan 1 - Jan 31, change period open till May 8, results within 2 weeks.

You can not change draws in the change period ie; regular to special, regular to reduced. You can withdraw but can't add a new app so, If you think you want to apply but aren't sure, put something down and change or withdraw later.

Looking at what.....16 weeks of holding your money. Not to mention the up front credit card fee you will pay.

From: Mossyhorn

Ya, everyone should just stop putting in for wyoming... ha ha!

From: COHOYTHUNTER

Yeah.... fu%k Wyoming and Colorado.... might as well stay home

From: YZF-88

Besides the scam of holding your money that long, we can’t put in for the preference point option. It was nice to apply and be done either way.

The late results are really gonna suck for some people

From: COHOYTHUNTER

Now Colorado just needs to make people have to buy their OTC tags by application deadline and things will be going in the right direction

From: Mossyhorn

The late results will really make it hard for people to apply for a backup option, like montana.

Ya know a wise ol man once told me..... 'all life comes down to is choices.... choices every single day can and will move your life in the directions you choose'. I guess picking WY or MT is no different.....

From: SBH

MT is not even close to Wyoming as far as a quality otc hunt. Wyoming may be a pain in the ass but they manage for quality and it shows.

Anyone know if you withdraw your application do you have to wait until the draw to get your money back?

From: Bou'bound

He who holds the tags makes the rules

I’m just giving Montana as an example. Hunted it twice and not a fan. I welcome any changes that will increase draw odds to those committed to hunting Wyoming.

Thanks for the link Bob, but i dont think it specifically addressed the refund process if you withdraw. Unless i read it wrong.

From: cnelk

See the last sentence.

For deadlines for withdrawing applications using the Department’s website, please review the application dates and deadline chart. A $5 fee will be deducted from the license application refund. The refund will be issued upon completion of the drawing. Pioneer applicants are exempt from the $5 withdrawal fee. Applicants may not withdraw from the Super Tag or Super Tag Trifecta drawing or a preference point only purchase. If you withdraw your application(s) from the drawing, your license fee(s) will not be refunded until after the drawing.

Thanks Brad! Looks like i missed it.

As usual, Bob with the succinct and correct answer.

So true Bou, so true.

It is far easier to post questions on websites and social media vs readin' and cipherin' regulations yourself! (Apparently)

Thanks for the link Bob - I had spend a bunch of time searching for it but with your link I was able to find it within minutes. Apparently wasn't looking in the right areas.

It's nice to have a forum where we can get help answer some of these questions - sometimes it feels harder than it should be to find answers and then there is always the question if you are looking at the current/approved regs or the ones from last year....

sd, if you don't know where to look it can be tough to get the info you want. Sometimes, good info is compiled for a Commission meeting and unless you look at the meeting notebooks you won't know it's available.

as an example....

JT, I think "succinct" is what you need to do to get the opomssum tails out of the drain of your sink?

From: YZF-88

Did I miss a memo on a tag fee increase again? $707 for the tag and application...plus a CC fee as well? How much will that be?

Cc fee is 2.5%, implemented for the 2019 draws. Eliminated a 1.8 million dollar expense.

LMAO...Some pretty funny responses!
