    Put mine in a few weeks back! I figured I'd let them borrow my money for a little while longer...

    If any of you draw unit 45 send me a PM, I hunted there last year in the last rifle hunt and was there the second week of archery for scouting. Next time I try for a NM Elk hunt and I list unit 45 as a third choice I think I would go for either a muzzleloader hunt or a archery tag. One thing I didn't realize last year was opening day of our elk hunt was opening day of deer season also. That added quite a few more hunters out in the woods, plus the weather didn't cooporate until the last day. Oh well thats elk hunting. Hopefully I'll fair better in Wyoming this year.

    No7 so you're not applying this year? I still haven't decided. I was going to do archery unit 45 3rd choice again but my buddy couldn't go due to family stuff.

    Hey Zim, I already drew an elk tag in the Big Horns in Wyoming. Should draw an antelope tag just before that hunt, so NM will have to wait til 2013

    I selected unit 45 1st season archery as my 3rd choice.. Did 52 and 51 as my first and second choice, all first season archery. We were limited in what times we could go, and these seemed to offer the best odds. If we draw, I'd love to pick somebodies brain, as that is going to be a monster drive for a 3-4 day scouting trip.

    I got some of them done this weekend - ORX, IBX, BHS and DER.

    We want in the guided pool for the rifle elk draw, still trying to decide who to go with there...

    I'll tell you one thing, with all these changes landowner tag inflation is home to roost for sure. Some of the 16's are going for $7500 for a landowner tag! (Insert puking smiley.)

    Ok that's nice. Good to know early to plan these other apps. Never happened to me yet. Did you have max points? I think some of those Big Horn units are getting drawn with less than max now. We applied for 38 a couple times, then switched to the southern units, where the draw odds all sucked the year's we applied, including this year. I believe we can draw 38 now any time if we want it. I think it might be a more fun hunt anyway. Those southern deserty units don't look appealing.

    Where are you going lope hunting? I've been undecisive this year on WY, NM & CO. And the WY deadline is in 2 days. Gotta do sumthin.
