Just curious how long it may take to draw a cow elk tag for a non resident in an average unit. I havent been able to find any draw statistics for cow elk and they are tasty tasty!

i didnt know that thanks fopr the heads up. If I put in for the cow drawing can I still buy a bonus point for the bull tag? Or can I buy bonus points for both in the same year?

You can out in for cow depredation and bull I believe. But the cow depredation gave me a heck of a time. It was the "within 5 miles of the baker ranch" i believe. I gridded that 5 miles and pounded it with no luck.

I don't think you can put in for depredation bull and cow elk at the same time. It's one at a time wich ever you pick. I do believe you can buy points still if you put in for elk. Not for sure

Ive been wrong before. I can put in for bull dep. even when not eligible for regular draw. I thought you could do cow dep and bull dep. but i may be wrong.

I do believe it is either bull or cow, not both regardless if it is a regular hunt or depredation hunt. I normally apply for bull dep then hope there is leftover cow left.

Where have you been applying to get denied 3 years in a row???? What weapon? You should be able to get one every other year if not every year here in the NE.

Do you lose your elk points if you apply and get a cow tag?

You will not lose your bull points if you take one year off from applying and draw cow. I do believe if you do not apply for bull 2 years in a row you will lose your points.

This. I do bull only and once I kill my bull I will do cow.

So basically you cant buy a point for a bull tag and put in to get drawn for a cow tag in the same year?

No quicknick, I do not believe NDOW will allow you to buy a bull point and apply for a cow tag. I am not 100% sure since I never tried it. This year I tried applying for bull depredation and cow tag and the computer system would not allow it. So i applied just for bull dep. One of the few flaws of the NV system in my opinion.
