    Hey Topgun welcome to Eastman's. I don't know that sheep area, I have only hunted the west side of Beatys and that was many years ago, so I con't help you there.

    An idea for your friend. If he a had a LOT of elk points in Nevada (say 15+), he can return the tag and get his points restored, and focus solely on his sheep tag this year. If he drew Nevada elk with only a few points, it certainly makes sense not to give up the tag.

    I was fortunate to draw the one NR archery bull elk tag on Mt. Emily! Finally drew a tag this year so I am stoked!

    Congrats Horniac. I was in your same point pool for that tag but passed on applying this year due to Wyoming tag. Eager to see how you do.

    Thanks Zim,

    Yeah we talked about it last year on MM. I didn't draw my WY elk tag with max points or my UT archery elk tag this year with 15 points so I am glad I drew this tag. Though I was sweating bullets, it actually couldn't have worked out any better. Still have WY antelope, AZ deer and sheep, and MT sheep, moose, and goat to go. In the running with my son for a late Coues deer tag in AZ and might draw a non-trophy WY antelope tag with my nephew so I have gone from depression to euphoria!

    Happy to provide you with info on the hunt when you decide to pull the tag...

    Looks like you picked a good year to cash in. Thing I have been careful about is the OR tags are not returnable. Gotta be sure you can do the hunt. I am also awaiting WY lope results with 50/50 chance max point red desert hunt. And Arizona where we should draw a Kaibab late rifle deer hunt with 15 points.

    Didn't draw a thing, but we went in with "0". no surprises. I will be spending about 4 weeks this year in ID. I will hunt OTC blacktail near my house. I will be hunting OTC bull tag in the White River area. Probably more for a warm up and conditioning for ID. We hunted there a few years back, and they are busted up and on the run. I think we have a good idea where to find them this time, so maybe it will be work out.

    congrats to everybody, especially the surprises !!!

    I hunted sheep there in 2001. Send me a PM with your phone number and I will share what I can remember.

    My wife and I drew Owyhee buck tags and I drew an antlerless deer tag for the same area. Will be hunting Out of State in Idaho this year as well.

    Good luck in the Owyhee unit ICEMAN, there's lots of country to cover! Bring your sun screen, it may be a hot one September 28th out there! That's one unit I wish I could spend some time in, there has to be some big 'ol desert bucks hiding somewhere??
