Just a general question. The state forums are more specific.

I drew my elk and deer tags for Colorado. I will be hunting in your neighborhood for elk Old Hunter. I used my points on a 1st rifle 49 bull tag. I won't know about Arizona or Iowa deer until later. I am also going to hunt Nebraska deer and Wyoming elk this year.

Finally drew my Colorado goat tag after 12 years of accumulating points. Unit 3/103 west of Craig, one of the best units with lots of public land. Didn't draw my 4th season buck tag, need another point....next year. Won't know for a week or so if I get my ML elk tag as I put in for a point as first choice. Didn't draw the desert sheep tag....again. Won't know for about a month on my Wyoming goat tags. If I don't get the ML elk tag, I'll probably buy a left over cow tag.

All in all, not to bad. Really excited about the Co. goat tag!!!

Draw was successful for me in Utah. Less than 12 hours to go to see what I got in only my 2nd year of applying there. I'm feeling
very lucky right about now!

Got my refund check from Colorado today. Was expecting to draw 2nd choice. Maybe next year I'll draw it again! Put Nevada app in 2 hours to late so I just got another point there. Still waiting on Wyoming and Idaho.

Didn't draw Nevada even with the increase in tags. Just points in CO and still waiting on Wyoming. Here in Cali I put in for every species. Should at least draw wyoming antelope but had to do the special even for that.

Even with a lot of points I did not draw one special tag for WA. Waiting for the WY antelope draw, but with the reduction in tags for the units I applied for, that not a sure thing even in the special draw.

My son and I both drew our first choice WY Antelope tags, one PP each. This will be his first goat hunt so I am pumped! He will be to, when I tell him tonight.

Late September - Utah limited entry muzzleloader deer for my wife.

Early October - Wyoming buck antelope for my wife and I, on the way home from Utah.

Late October - West John Day River sheep tag for my wife.

Late November - Oregon muzzleloader blacktail deer for my wife.

I get to mainly be the guide this year, but that's great with me :-)

Everything set for this year. I did draw a ML cow elk tag, my 3rd choice. Did some scouting in the area I will be hunting last week and saw lots of fresh sign. Got there a little late so I'm sure all the elk were bedded down for the day as it was pretty hot.

I also drew my unit 74 Wyoming goat tag, one of Eastmans blue chip areas. I've hunted it before so I know where I want to be. Drew a E/S tag and 2 anterless tags, so I'll have plenty of antelope in the freezer.

Just got the Wyoming tags in the mail today.

I drew the tag I have been waiting for ever to draw. Colorado unit 201 muzzleload elk. If it started raining today and rained for about a month straight, I might change my mind but as of now I am about 95% sure I am going to turn this tag back in and get my points back. Way too dry this year!

If you do that, will they offer it up to the next guy in line?

The way I understand is like this. If I let them keep my money, they eat the tag and don't put it back into the draw, this is the only way to get points back. If I want my money back, they keep all my points and the tag might get back into the draw. Since this is only a $46.00 tag, obviously I will surrender the money and get my points back and deal with it next year.

I didn't draw my WY antelope tag choices. I will try to set up a hunt with leftover tags. I do have 2 preference points now.
