Im a NV resident and I have 6 points going into the 2013 draw. I have spent a lot of time in areas 23, 11, and 22 and I know there are A LOT of big bulls in these areas, but I have never been to the northern part of the state.

What I have personally seen is that all of the biggest NV bulls come from the 23, 22, and 11 areas, but a few nice ones come out of the northern-part too... Since I have 6 points I have a DECENT chance of drawing a 61, 71....62... or 72-74 archery tag... I realize I could get lucky and draw 22, 23, or 11, but I dont have a great chance for that...

So my question is:
Would it be worth it to burn my points for a 61,71....62....or 72-74 tag and possibly have to wait 10 years to put in again. Or should I just forget those areas and stay with 23, 22, and 11 and have the best chance of killing a monster bull? I figure that since its so hard to get a NV Bull Elk tag, I want to kill a big bull when I get a tag. So is the hunting good enough and the bulls big enough in the northern-areas to use my points? Or should I just stay with 23, 22, and 11???

Any opinions about the northern-areas would be great... Willing to help anyone whos got questions about 22, 23, or 11!

I also realize that the 22 and 11 areas got split into 2 separte areas, so that might give me a better chance of drawing one of these areas...??
But its impossible to tell what my odds will be until they update the website with the 2012 info...
Does anyone know when they will be updating the info from 2012??
