Quotas are the number of limited licenses up for grabs. Quotas are only set for limited license hunts. As you probably guessed, there are often different quotas for residents and nonresidents. Obviously, over-the-counter licenses are not shown in this graph.
Often state agencies do not report actual resident/nonresident quota breakdowns. They'll say that they will be determined at the time of the draw. In those cases, we'll try to calculate an estimated quota based on actual historical draw results.
Last year the total quota for hunt 036-4 was 345 licenses, and 281 licenses were reserved for residents.
Was the quota met in the draw, or is there a surplus of leftover tags? In popular units, there's rarely any surplus. It's worthy of note to mention that just because there may be a surplus, that doesn't mean that those licenses will be available to purchase as a leftover license.
Last year, there were 180 tags drawn, and there were 165 leftover tags (after the draw) available for hunt 036-4.

Wyoming statute says nonresidents must have a licensed guide or resident companion to hunt big or trophy game in federally designated wilderness areas. The resident companion will need to get a free non-commercial guide license from a Game and Fish office. The law does not prohibit nonresidents from hiking, fishing or hunting game birds, small game, or coyotes in wilderness areas. Only nonresident big and trophy game hunters must have a licensed guide or resident companion.
