    The regulation brochure says they will mail out tags and refunds by April 19th, so the drawing should be any day now.
    Then you can still have a chance for a left-over tag starting April 22nd.

    Get in good shape for hard climbing. There are lots of elk, but they stay in the thick oak brush in the steep canyons. Try to get high, downwind of course, and look down into the brush.
    Good luck to...

    By the way, if you just want meat, a cow elk tag is much easier to draw than a bull tag. There are many more of them and less demand. There are no doe deer tags offered, though.

    Too many to list.
    The chili is very mild, so I add some pizazz to it.

    "What do you hunt the most?"

    Quail, rabbits, squirrel, grouse.
    Elk, and deer, are a few days, once a year thing, while small game goes on for weeks or months, day after day. What fun!

    I'd use the Remington .270 that I've hunted with since the early 1970's. It's taken several elk and deer, no reason to think it won't continue to do so.
