JACKSON, Wyo. (KIFI) - If you don’t live in Wyoming but like to hunt there, a major price hike could be on the way if you want better odds.
Wyoming House Bill 200 significantly increases the price of 40% of non-resident deer, elk and antelope tags.
That 40% would be up for the first draw. The other 60% would stay the same.
That means for first draw, a non-resident elk tag would increase from $576 to $1,258, an 118% increase.
And a non-resident deer tag would increase from $288 to $826, an 86.8% increase.
For antelope, a non-resident antelope tag would increase from $288 to $874, an 203.5% increase.
The bill has passed both theWyoming House and Senate and is awaiting for a signature from Wyoming’s governor.
