    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.
    There is a lot of BLM land in 62, I have never had a problem with access.

    My understanding is that a type 1 is a buck tag good for an entire unit (let's take 63 for example). A type 2 is a buck tag that is only good in a certain portion of said unit. Last year the Type 2 tag in 63 was only good for the eastern half of 63. Best to check the regs if you apply for a Type 2 so you know exactly where it's good and where it's not.

    Type 2 may also have the same boundaries as type1 but a different opening day

    Type 2 in 62 has access issues that is why you can get it with zero points. Look up the hunt description, north of wise dugout and east of continental divide the vast majority of that is checkerboard. A buddy of mine hunted that area and said a lot of the land is leased up by an outfitter. There is some BLM around but can you even legally get to it? The land around the reservoir also appears to be almost all private. Those conditions would make me nervous even with a GPS chip.


    This is what pronghornguide service had to say about that tag...

    "We guided in 62-2 last year. We counted about 12 total sections that you can access that might have antelope in it. The rest of the area is either private or would require driving through private for access and all of the private land is marked and run by an outfitter. Unless you include the "half" sections either side of the highway that you might catch a buck standing in like Cade mentions - that might increase the total accessible land by a little."

    But maybe they are just trying to downplay an area they liked....who knows.


    It has been my experience though that zero preference tags are zero preference for a reason.

    Actually, unit 62 is over 50% private land. There is accessible public to hunt as well as walk-in areas, but there is also quite a bit of country that requires private land permission. The type 2 tags, in the east/southeast portion of the unit, encompass mostly checkerboard lands. Again, there are some public blocks with access, but a good map is a must.

    "It has been my experience though that zero preference tags are zero preference for a reason." Truer words have not been spoken. There are no secret spots where the access is open, the draw odds are high, and the Boone and Crockett bucks run free and stupid...

    ***Yep, you just spent another $30 on a PP last year with no more chance of drawing a great unit this year than you did last year! Just pick a good unit with plenty of accessible public land and do your hunt this year before the license fees go up. There are plenty of good bucks in most units if you get off the roads and hunt for them, as evidenced by the post UH made!

    ***As far as the comment by EBOLAVIRS, it is not accurate as Eli is a straight shooter and even though he and his Dad run that guide service, he's on a lot of websites helping people do DIY hunts just because he's a good guy!!!

    There are units you can draw 2nd choice in the regular draw that I think would be comparable to 71. IMO 71 has alot of tags for a small unit.

    Goathunter. I sent you a personal message (PM).

    Eli is a super guy. He has helped me on numerous occasions through personal messages. No one judges antelope better and kills better antelope than he and his dad. I have never known him to alter info to throw someone off. He gives unit recommendations and advice, often with no benefit to himself. The guy just loves antelope hunting.
