    The only reason the odds were better for NRs is the price of the tag. Raise resident tags ten fold and the odds suddenly get way better.

About RICMIC
Biography:
I am a retired police officer from Minnesota. I work as a wilderness canoeing guide for the BSA during the summer and have an obsession with hunting out west. So far, I've got three great 6X6 elk and three 4X4 mule deer. This years hunt is for my first antelope. I use a guide for elk, but DIY for deer and am always looking for new hunting partners. I hope that it's because I wear them out instead of other reasons.
Location:
Two Harbors, Minnesota
Interests:
Hunting (of course), fishing, hiking, wilderness canoeing, woodworking
Occupation:
Retired police officer/ canoe guide for BSA
