    2018 - Where you going or applying for?

    Can't hardly believe it, but for the first time since 2008 I doesn't look like I will be going out of state to hunt. I have struck out on every application that I put in for my son & I. Hoytshooter09, did you do any good on your elk hunt?

    Pronghorn

    Buy a preference point now in Wyoming and then next year use it to go hunting. Unless you are just looking for a B&C trophy, antelope hunting is very doable on your own. Find a unit with accessible public land and go hunting. It is a blast, no need to get up super early, hunt all day, don't have to climb any mountains. I don't make it in here every day, but if you have some questions just ask and you will get answers soon.

    Texas Drawn Hunts

    Good on you, Sir!!! And the youth hunts are awesome. I can't wait until I get the chance to do that again. Also you might want to check out the Texas Youth Hunting Program linked below. I took Jake on many of those, some are management type hunts, some are for some nice trophys http://www.tyhp.org/?print=true

    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.

    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/
