    Thanks for the info Musket Man. I was not aware that your second choice was only good for leftover tags. Sounds like I should be looking into a plan B for this year... It is difficult trying to keep up with each states regulations. This is my first attempt at an elk tag.

    The guy in camp behind us drew with 0 points, so it does happen.
    It can happen but be careful using up all your luck! 2 years ago I drew an antelope in the random draw with single digit odds and a deer tag in Idaho with single digit odds (killed my biggest mule deer and antelope on those 2 tags!) and last year I couldnt draw tags that should of been a sure thing! LOL

    NE69;

    Did you DIY hunt or with a guide? What was the results of your hunt and your friend?

    Diy. I shot a 5 point on next to last day of season. I bow-hunted late in Sept. Hunted first few days of rifle and went back 3rd time for end of season. Friend shot a cow on his first tag. Didn't draw one year and drew next year with 1 pp. He missed a bull then shot a cow on 3rd day. He was so worried he wouldn't fill his tag he shot the cow even though he was seeing bulls every day.

    I am hoping for a chance at a 340+ type bull. Did you see anything like that or hear of anyone else seeing them?
    With 8pp this will be a one chance thing so hope to do it right.

    ***How do you figure he would have a chance in 45 this year when <6 PPs was 100% and it went down to only a 28.57% chance with 5PPs last year. This year the max is 8PPs, so with him only having 5 I don't see any way he'll draw if things stay the way they have been.

    They gave out 8 tags in the random draw last year. There was a 2.9% chance. Not much but a chance.
