I’m looking to apply with a guide for the sheep draw as well as ibex, how much of an actual advantage will this give me? And do any of you have any experience with any guides that you recommend for this?
The draw odds for sheep and ibex are low. Less than 1-2% pretty much all the way across the board in all draw pools, resident, non resident, and outfitter pool.I’m looking to apply with a guide for the sheep draw as well as ibex, how much of an actual advantage will this give me?

So now under the new way of allocating tags for nr there has to be at least 17 tags for that unit in order for there to be a chance of drawing 1 tag being issued to a nr ? Am I understanding that correctly because I’m not even sure there is a unit that offers 17 tags or more for sheep.The difference is not in the number of tags but in the number of applicants, Since the Game Department did away with rounding up for tags, the non-resident, according to my calculations will get one permit per 17 available 17 x 0.6 = 1.02. So any hunt such as the youth Ibex with 15 tags, you as a non resident will not get any tags, The rifle Ibex with 25 tags you now get one tag, last year it would have been two, Makes a difference,
I don't agree. The law reads that the residents get a minimum of 84%, so with ten tags the the residents get 9 tags. There is no longer any rounding up allowed, since last year. So the non resident get 6% of the tags. So that is 0.6 of a tag, no round up, so the non resident now does not get a tag. The outfitter get 10% or one tag and that tag goes to the non resident.
Lets increase the tags to 20. The residents get a minimum of 84% of the tags or 16.8. Because they must receive a minimum of 84% they will not receive 17 tags or 85%. The non resident has 6% or 1.2 tags, no rounding up and they get one. The outfitter at 10% gets 2. There are your 20 tags, 17 resident, 1 non resident, 2 outfitter. This meets the requirements of the statute.
Yeah so after understanding this better I went and looked at the booklet for this year, looks like one nr rocky tag and one nr desert tag and then two each for the guided nr draw. So for elk, antelope, deer do they go off of .6 percent for the overall amount of tags like sheep, and ibex or .6 of the unit quota ? For the nr draw ?Correct with the Game and Fish doing away with rounding up, my math says that the total number of tags issued in the draw for a hunt, must be a minimum of 17 total. 0.6 x 17 = 1.02. Anything less there are no licenses in the non resident pool. This takes out some youth hunts, lots of antelope hunts and some elk hunts.
That implies to elk, deer, antelope right? But not with sheep, ibex where they take the overall tag quota and then give 10 percent of the tags to guided and 6 percent to nrNR get 1 license at 13 TOTAL licenses inside a hunt code. FACT! Outfitters get 1 at 7 TOTAL licenses per hunt code ~ FACT..
