Several states currently have their super hunt application periods open. Super hunts are used by many states to generate extra revenue for their wildlife fund. During the application process, applicants can purchase tickets for one species or they can apply for a combo hunt to chase several species. Super hunts are a dream hunt for many hunters. Typically super hunts allow hunters to have much longer seasons than average. Likewise, they let the hunters hunt some of the best areas in each state. The draw odds are incredibly high, but it is like winning the hunting lottery. Below we will discuss super hunts that are open in a few states.

Wyoming’s Super Hunt

Currently, Wyoming offers super hunts for single species or you can apply for their Trifecta. Single species tickets cost $10 per ticket. The Trifecta ticket allows hunters to pick any three of the ten species, it costs $30 per ticket. Likewise, super hunt winners retain their preference points and once-in-a-lifetime availability. This means hunters get a dream hunt and still have the chance at hunting these animals again in the future through the regular draw. Wyoming also sweetens the deal for hunters applying for the super hunt. For every 5 regular super hunt tickets or for every 2 Trifecta tickets you will be entered into the Ultimate Gear Package.
