    Texas Drawn Hunts

    2018 booklet is out there and the website is open for applications

    2018 - Where you going or applying for?

    I'm guilty. I applied for points for antelope and moose for my son and I, since there was practically no additional cost. I imagine it won't be too long 2 -3 years, that they will raise the cost of applying after getting people suckered in. There will definitely be more point creep.

    Congrats Corey. Get you a big one.

    2018 - Where you going or applying for?

    I put in for 3rd season deer in Unit 67 with 12 points, didn't really think I would have a chance based on last years numbers. Turns out I did have a chance, at my point level there were 7 applications and 1 tag. I didn't get it, but at least I have almost caught up with the creep. So far, I have struck out on everything, only apps still out or pending are AZ deer, SD & TX. I tried moose in Idaho, but got rejected there also. Tried just about everything in NM and got rejected. Same for Nevada & Utah. May have to go back to Canada with Snapper.

    That's surprising, I had heard good things about Matador. Getting close (a few months) to get to do it all over again.

    Dawg, Any luck on your Matador hunt? Did you see any good bucks?

    2018 - Where you going or applying for?

    Already struck out for elk in Wyoming & AZ and antelope in AZ. Applications in for everything, just about in Utah. Will be applying in Texas, Nevada, Colorado, & AZ (deer & sheep). Haven't decided about NM yet, probably will just because it is cheap to do in the long run, although very poor odds. Will probably apply in SD for deer and bison. Now for actual draws, my best chances will be Colorado ( have plenty of points for both deer & elk) and AZ deer will have about a 30 - 40% chance of drawing. If nothing comes through then I will probably just go OTC elk in Colorado.

    That's cool, we struck out on the draws they had yesterday. More to come...

    Texas Drawn Hunts

    you are right about someone has to get drawn. It happened to me last year on the Private Land Antelope hunt. 1 tag and over 1500 applicants and I got drawn. My son and I have gone on a few hunts. I think there are quite a few deer hunts that the odds aren't real bad, but the ones that are more trophy type are long odds. I have been applying since the late 90's for some of the hunts. Mule deer is my main attraction, also, but I'm looking more towards the west Texas hunts. Good luck to you.

    Let's meet up Oct 2017

    I don't think it is going to happen. No interest. I have a whitetail tag ML tag in Kansas this year and then a cow elk in Wyoming. Tennessee is a pretty state, what part you planning on going to?

    TV Star Busted for Poaching

    You would think these guys would realize they have to much to risk to do this type of thing. Hope all of their sponsors drop them. http://wyo4news.com/news/star-reality-tv-hunting-show-wildgame-nation-sentenced-poaching-lincoln-county/

    CO elk backdoor

    Congrats on the draw. Good luck, get us some pictures. I got my points for both elk & deer. Got way too many elk points but not near enough, don't know what to do with them.

    Colorado Regs

    After applying, I continued to research and ended up chickening out due to the supposed winter kill in the area. I changed my application to points. Or at least I hope I did, they accepted the change but stated there was no guarantee that it was actual done. Anyways, I just applied yesterday in Kansas. Pretty much guaranteed the whitetail tag, but also put in for the mule deer upgrade in far NW Kansas, about a 20 -25% chance I get that. The Smokey's are awesome, vacationed there in 2001 in June and had a great time. Different than Colorado, but beautiful none the least.
