Thanks again. Happy hunting...
Thanks for the info Bob. I'm not in the trophy business, but wouldn't pass one up. I would really just like a good hunt and do enjoy Antelope meat so a 14-15 incher would not be something I'd pass on. When my boy can join me he'll be out for horns. Sad to say, but here in NE Oregon, he's passed on bull elk that I'd have shot the first day. To each his own...
No problem! I had a really fun hunt in 71 4 years ago. I would like to hunt it again some day, if you do draw it let me know and I can give you some starting points if you like.
Thanks again Bob. Will contact you if I draw...
A Type 2 permit on 62 would be doable as you could draw it with 0 points, but I have heard that 62 has some serious access issues (which leads me to believe that is the reason you can draw the Type 2 with 0 points). If you were to apply for 62, I'd make sure you have a spot with guaranteed access.
Keep in mind that quotas may be cut substantially this year (up to a third I've heard in some units). That doesn't bode well for odds either. Maybe those that do decide to put in will get lucky though because others are sitting it out this fall hoping for better conditions for horn growth next year. Only time will tell.
What is the difference in the type 1 and type 2 antelope tags and is there an archery specific season you can hunt with the antelope tags?
Type 9 is archery but I believe you can hunt archery with a type 1 or 2 license. Not sure on dates.
