Is there any type of buffer zone for wild herds vs domestic grazing permits? Sanctions for people violating buffers?
No sanctions that I'm aware of, there is an incredible amount of collaboration with the domestic sheep industry to keep them separated.

There is one really bad actor in Wyoming that is impossible to deal with.

Not really. There was a case a few years ago about a rancher intentionally running sheep up against a heard in retaliation for not getting his wildlife damages he wanted from the state.

The big horns are wild animals an start to spread out as the population grows. That's when they get into to trouble.

It is tough to figure out what are the correct and wrong answers for WY hunter management. I wish the game and fish, residents and non residents the best of luck in the upcoming draw.
