    Usually I fall back on the wife and daughter that like to hunt. Daughter has moose tag this fall, if I don't get drawn for elk, lope or deer, they wife will usually draw. I don't have to be the one pulling the trigger. If all else fails, then OTC elk & deer for us, Idaho is good for many opportunities. Not a trophy guy here, just like to get out and put good meat on the table. Have a hard time trying to schedule hunts so they don't overlap and to spread out the fall time.

    Does anyone know when Idaho draw results post?

    If I strike out it means I'll just be hunting IL whitetails this fall.

    Part of me feels like a fall back tag would mean an avg tag at best, and I'm done making a road trip out west on an avg tag anymore. If I lived in the west that may be a different story.

    For me it's an otc CA general tag or two and a bear tag. Also I'm either going to CO otc second season rifle or AZ otc archery in Jan. Looks like it's time to make up my mind and get to planning.

    OTC archery elk, still have not made the decision to archery or rifle black tail...I will wait to see what my cameras produce before I decide. I have also gone to Idaho the last 9 years for whitetail and am 7 of 9 and it wasnt going to be an every year thing but it is now.

    OTC archery elk in Colorado and some sort of leftover Nebraska deer tag or leftover Wyoming Antelope tag.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.

    Mine was going to be one of the leftover Montana combo tags. Was set to pull the trigger when instead I pulled a rabbit out of my hat with a New Hampshire moose tag with 1% draw odds. Set for October.

    Also, when I could see things weren't going my way early, I decided to burn my Iowa deer points so I will be there in November. So my plate ended up full after all.

    I usually only apply for pronghorns in Wyoming, my fallback has been left over tags. I can get otc deer tags here in Missouri 1 antlered deer and unlimited doe tags so I get to hunt something every year.
