How many landowner tags they give out in wmu? Does it effect how many draw tags they give out the following year? Would like to know total tags given out in a zone draw,landowner and guiding tags?

Not sure how the system works. I went down to apply for a landowner elk tag after I was unsuccessful in the draw and the lady had me fill out a form and told I could pick up the tag at any vendor by tomorrow. Almost seemed like a free-for-all because she pretty much said here you go. They must keep track of this somewhere I hope.

acres, more or less, or be an eligible person to whom the titleholder transfers this application opportunity. Atitle holder may transfer this
application opportunity to an immediate family member, or to a share holder (in case of corporations), to the land’s actual operator, or to

available will be issued to eligible persons on a first-come first-served basis.

9. Aperson may not obtain more than 1 of the above 5 landowner special licences per year.
