    Applying in the special pool will drastically improve your odds. Two to three years applying in that pool should statistically assure a tag. Personally, I'd like to hunt a unit on the down cycle in numbers of tags.

    I agree with that. I have max points and am thinking about the special tag.

    Its hard to argue with that! I think if I had max points I would stick with it but I only have 3 points and I would like to draw a tag with 4 or 5 points but I will see what happens the next year or 2.

    After receiving advice from several of you (thank you and PM's sent) and hitting the research hard, I did apply for unit 90-1. I DREW THE TAG! I have several scouting trips planned and this tag is going to consume my time and effort. At the risk of hearing from the "how dare you ask crowd that always comments on this site", anyone have any advice? For those of you that drew MT tags, hit me up and I will see how I can help.

    Congratulations on a great tag! Good luck! Hunt hard and shoot straight is the only advice I can give you. Wish. I knew more about the area. What part of MT are you from?

    Mattdeere - Thanks. Hoping to get down there for several weeks. As for the shooting straight part, I will be spending my fair share of time at the range. I'm from Bozeman but hunt all around the state.

    something to think about in the futre, when I bought my house(Idaho 2002), I made sure there was hunting out of the house, wether on national forest land, or on my small amount of land. I only have 7 acres, but it comes up to national forest land. Small, nothing special house on trophy land. Not bragging, just another way to set your self up for the futre.

    It was cool last night to be looking at this years elk calfs.
