After the recent resident big game draw, I was engaged in the conversation about whether or not preference points for resident hunters was a good thing or not.

There really are two sides of the issue. If you draw the areas and tags that you would like to hunt on a regular basis, you are probably happy with the system as it stands today. If you are not drawing tags, you are more than likely looking for something to change.

Historically it has generally been a 50/50 split on those that would like to see preference points and those that would not. We would encourage all resident hunters to take the poll and we will forward the results to the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission for consideration.
