Hey All, just circling back to keep the convo going, give updates, and of course ask more questions.

We have narrowed in and decided on a WY rifle hunt. Thank you to all who provided feedback. You were very instrumental in that decision.

We are now at the unit picking stage. As a party we can go in on a group app with 2pts. According to gohunt and WFGD, we can draw about any general unit and several limited units.

I know that not everything that glitters is gold; however I’m having a hard time not believing that a unit that takes 2pts and the NR Special draw, wouldn’t be better than a general unit that is also OTC for residents.

I want to be careful naming specific units publicly because I don’t want to blow up anyone’s spot (happy to discuss vis private message though). However, I’m looking at a unit that takes 2pts and the special NR draw that only issues around 500 tags for the entire unit. Downside is it’s only about 20% public. I’m having a hard time convincing myself that despite the low public land numbers that it wouldn’t be a better hunt than a similar sized unit with 60-80% public land but 2000-3000 hunters. Particularly when they have similar trophy potential and success rates.

I realize these are somewhat vague, but again I’m not trying to mess up anyone’s hunt.
