Over the counter tags in the Cowboy State?

To make a long story short, my contract for teaching has not been renewed for this academic year. I have been applying here in my home state of Massachusetts for the whole summer but it is pretty tough. So far nothing has come up.

A close friend said that this may be an opportunity in disguise. I love teaching but it can be a pain with the time of year. The busiest time of year for me is the fall and it coincides with hunting season. I have always wanted to hunt out West and had so far only hunted varmints such as prairie dogs on summer vacations. I did about 12 years ago did a guided hunt for antelope on private land in New Mexico. That season was the third week of August and I was able to do it.

Anyways. Unless things change in the next three or four weeks, I will be out of work for a long time. This may be an opportunity for me to do a Wyoming hunt for something like antelope.

Does the state of Wyoming have over the counter tags for some game? I know that there is a drawing in Febuary or March for most game, but I thought I read somewhere that you can still get some over the counter tags?

Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.
