What tags are you trying to draw this year and were is your first choice for each species?

I'm in the Waiting period for Bull Elk but I'm trying for cow and the Bull Depredation hunt
First year I can start trying for Buck Antalope After the 5 year waiting period, 015 was my first choice
Mule deer 151-155 first choice
Goat not much choices there

I haven't started to try for sheep yet for some reason but will next year.

I did elk, desert bighorn too. Me and a master guide here in NV and me and him are going to do a bow hunt for desert bighorn when I draw. Pays off when one of your best buddies is a master guide!

I also hunted elk in those units (111-115) last fall (late season), if your lucky enough to draw a tag you WILL see plenty of good bulls and some real toads.

Good luck to ya..........

Area 7 first choice for deer, 041-42 first choice for antelope, but I have a strange feeling I'm gonna draw 031 archery antelope.

Cali Sheep: 012, 014, & 021/022
Desert Sheep: 263, 267, 262, 268, & 253B
Antelope: 021/022, 015, 012-014, 041/042 Early, & 041/042 Late
Deer: 194/196, 015, 021, 041/042, & 022
Bear
Bonus Points for Elk, Rocky, and Mtn. Goat

A lot of low odds draws, but I will only be able to hunt relatively close to home if I do draw. Probably just end up chasing birds again. Ya never know though. Good luck to everyone! I hate the anticipation.

BSA, that's a hell of a bull in your avatar. Where's it from?

I'm in across the board still in the waiting period for elk hunted 111-113 a few years ago and got my bull. I mixed up my deer choices a bit this year with worst to best odds archery only
261-268
231
22
111-113
101-108

Drawn rubies the past 2 years even as a last choice I really look forward to getting into that high country. with our ranch being just outside of McGill it would be sweet to draw a 111-113 deer tag maybe I wouldn't need so much mountain house :)

Also ikic that depredation hunt is a tough one but I had a friend draw that tag last year and he came home with a 395 inch velvet bull! With his rifle. he would have had to strip velvet to enter the books and said no way!

If you draw 031 PM me I can help you out in that area. I have a buddy that owns a ton of Alfalfa in the area and I know we're there are a few water holes higher in the mountains. I had a friend that too a 86" buck about three years ago there.

Ya I know it's a stretch but I also got my bull in 2006 so it's all I have to try for. Wow what a great bull! Ya I would have left the velvet on too! Good luck this year.

How did you do packer?

Go to the elk forum "page 4" for my pics and short story, i really had a ball on that hunt although i was one hurt unit after the pack out.

That would be SWEET! That unit fluctuates quite a bit on NR draw odds. I think this year it's due to have easy odds again. I like my chances.

Thanks MSUcat. He's a NM bull.

Who's your master guide?

Victor Trujillo. I say he might be the best bighorn guide in the. nation, he just got the governor tag again so he is scouting. We are going to do it with a bow too!

I had a similar hunt but I had some guys with me. It was the hardest hunt I've ever done. But I feel the same. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I was a bit further north in the Meadow Crk country. All that country from Cleve Crk to the northern Schell wilderness boundry will make any normal man tremble and get weak in the knees !!!!!

Nice buck, and yes it is BRUTAL. Well, the valley floor is basicaly the end of the pack out unless your near one of the few drainages that have vehicle access. I think there are only 3 or 4 with enough access to really matter.

3494

Your father can appreciate this pic. The valley floor is a long ways away...........

Man that photo brings back some memories. When I killed my bull and I looked down to the valley and I could barley see the light that was on at a ranch house I though to myself What did I do!
