    LOL !
    Don't say that Sawfish ! Got my bighorn and antelope. Want a dang tule elk tag now ! have max pts. Maybe 10 yrs. okay ? Took me 13 for antelope and 10 of it was with max pts. I may have told you this but don't hate me for it I drew my bighorn tag in 2002 , the first year they were going to give points and 3 times as many people put in. Sometimes the hunt God's have to smile on you. Or is it the F&G God's ??? I'm ready for X12. Leaving 9/13. Hope my luck holds out . Sawfish , aren't you shooting Lionfish yet ?
    That was pretty neat looking buck bigshot.

    If it's G3 and you don't have max points, you are in for a long wait...

    Ok. Don't want to make you give up your secret
    In the random draw, do you have to have no points ? I told you about the guy who drew a tule elk archery tag with no points and killed a nice 6x6.

    I have a few points, maybe even "I" will get luckey someday? or even worse I'll probley end up drawing all my premium tags in the same year! I would have to quit my job! Because who knows how long I'd have to wait to draw them tags again.

    Are you insinuating I was lucky this year ? LOL ! I've done that a few times in my life. It's never been a problem of vacation time at work. It's been the $$$ for the out of state trips. Especially the last few yrs. with the price of fuel. Diesel fuel in particular. I think this yr. was one of them with Ca. antelope tag, X12 deer tag and Wy. 125 deer tag. So glad I didn't draw Az. and applied for the firsst time for points only in Ut. in 30 yrs. . I'd of been screwed !

    I know what you mean HuntWYODon, I'm going to Wyoming for antelope and Colorado for elk this year. Glad I didn't draw Utah or Arizona, or I'd be selling some of my kids to pay for the trip!!

    LMAO ! CRAP, I as praying I didn't draw AZ. for the first time ever in my llife ! Hope you got a couple antelope doe tags too. Man, I haven't been to Co. for elk since 1995 in Meeker ! What area do you have in Wy. for lope ? I have a lope doe tag in 78 . missed getting one in 81 like usual. Had buck tag in 81 in 2010. I put in for pts. only in Ut. for first time in 30 yrs., thank God ! Hope you do well in your hunts and post pics !

    I drew a Antelope buck tag and purchased two doe tags all for area 71 in Wyoming. We hunt unit 42 in Colorado and always do good.
