I can feel your pain. I put in numerous hours of research, found a great hunt, only to learn that one of the big magazines promoted the unit this year. With 21 points I appled and was not drawn for elk.
Thats exactly what I mean. Thats a ton of Elk points and you still didnt draw. WOW!!! What always cracks me up too is the draw odds that are placed in some of the mags, they get your hopes up too much.
