    Hey Zim, which unit did you put in for? With 15 you should be almost guaranteed for any tag besides the Henrys.

    HF,

    I applied for the Paunsagunt archery hunt and should draw it. After studying the draw odds and guys in my point pools it could be 5-6 years before I could draw a NR mzl or rifle there. THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER REASONS: I prefer the challenge of archery; From what I gathered I should see a lot of bucks; I can take off the entire 4 weeks to take my time and get an opportunity; I normally have no hunts in August, so this would extend my hunting opportunity for the year; I like the fact I can hunt two different environments, high conifer or low desert; Not as big an advantage to having a posse for this hunt as opposed to the firearm hunts. I will be solo: And last but not least, SFW could return to steal more NR tags and screw me for ever if I don't burn my points now.

    You should have a fun hunt, there are a lot of bucks down there, and no kidding about SFW.

    My goal is to find a good mule deer buck during the summer months in the high country, and then kill him with my bow. I would really like to find something in the 170+ region, but this will be a very tall order in an over the counter region.
    Hunt hard, and trust your instincts

    I'm using 21 resident elk preference points in Colo. this year. 350 B&C or bigger I will also hunt deer and antelope, but if nothing else happens and I only get a good elk I will be perfectly happy

    A 350 B&C elk! I know that is thinking big but I am using my 21 pref points for colorado elk, I have waited many years and scouted a lot of land to decide what is best for me. If I had to do it again I probably wouldn't wait this long, but that is the point chasing game here in colorado. Mule deer and whitetail on the eastern plains is always on my table but I would easily go home empty handed on these hunts if I tag out on a quality elk

    1. Kill a good Mule deer with my bow (general tag)
    2. Kill a branch bull in the Cascades with my rifle (general tag)
    3. Take my 12 yr old step daughter on her fisrt deer hunt and guide her to her fist buck
    4. Hope I get a call from whomever draws the Bighorn tag this year where I drew last year so maybe I can go again!
    5. Add one more PP for 2013 currently 3 deer, 0 elk and 14 speed goat
    6. Start looking for my 2013 speed goat
    All Oregon stuff, no out of state stuff for me yet
