Having hunted the Wyoming Range as a resident for over 40 years the deer numbers are at an all time low. One of the problems I see and have been guilty myself is Hunting in the North part of G or H on Sept. 15th, used to be the 10th, then hunting in the south end in area 135 on the Oct. 1st opener. I see many of the same trucks and hunters doing the same. It seems like it might be a reasonable change to decrease the buck harvest to change all of the areas south of the Snake River canyon to an Oct. 1st opening date and do away with the September hunting. Another idea is the massive increase in elk numbers the past 25 years in area G. We now know from Dr. Monteith research in Wyoming that deer and elk both use and compete for the same forage. I would like to see a big increase possibly double the amount of additional Cow/Calf elk tags for all the areas south of the Snake River Canyon in G and H. Any thoughts or opinions or other ideas on how to increase our deer herds? I think we have cut non residents back so far, especially in G we don’t need to further decrease those numbers. My fear is every year somebody suggest we go limited quota in some of the areas in G and I don’t support that drastic of a change yet. We also know CWD is ever encroaching on Western Wyoming which might be catastrophic along with negative impacts of drought and an ever increasing predator and wolf population.
