    Ouch.

    Going to be some serious congestion in the mountains of NV this year... especially the Rubys! Tags damn-near doubled for archery, rifle, and resident juniors.

    Wow, my chances went up tenfold. I might draw an elk tag this year, maybe turn my luck around.

    Seems like what they wanted last year but it took two years to put in effect. They actually lowered Mountain goat tags. I foresee a stoplight at Harrison Pass! The 101-108 changes always surprise me. They usually have a second draw for archery in that unit because they can't get rid of tags on the first round. I think they do their analysis during the migration?

    Ya when I hunted up by Harrison Pass there needed to be a light then. No thanx. The Rubys is like a pumpkin patch with headlites everywhere you look. Oh well us guys that hike in know that all those road hunters push the big animals to us. I also think there will be mostly immature deer will be taken which isn't a good thing either but at least for this year with our mild winter there should be some big deer taken.

    I think most of the mature deer/resident deer already know where the traffic is around that area very rarely have I ever seen mature deer around the roads there it's usually does with some young bucks still hanging around the herds. Last year in area 111-113 my wife had a tag I took her into a canyon where we were a bit away from traffic. We could hear 4 wheelers and trucks but once we dropped into the bowl we found 5 bucks grazing that felt completely safe knowing no one was going to hike to them. She was 5 months pregnant at the time to help with a visual on how easy the hike was. She was able to get a shot off but no contact was made.

    I'm curious if they factor in the fact that most guys including myself can't afford to take as much time off as years past for their hobbies. Which would lower success numbers thus increasing tag numbers. Along with their research.

    They say they do but it's all averages I think.
