I'm specifically looking at the late season hunts for these tags. The 2012 NR stats from NDOW show that:
111 - 115 Late had 7 tags and 129 applicants so 19 to 1 draw odds and 100% success rate.
221, 222 Late had 6 tags and only 35 applicants so 6 to 1 draw odds but with a 50% success rate.
I have zero points but have read countless stories about big Nevada bulls. So, I figured I better throw my name in the hat this year and these are the units that look appealing to me. I've never been to the area so I can only look at it from my computer screen and on the pages of several different magazines. 111 - 115 looks to be the more desirable tag but is there really that big of a difference between that one and 221, 222? I checked some maps and they all look fairly close together. Is the elk population in 221 and 222 less or is the terrain just that much nastier? If someone could clue me in on the differences between these two tags I'd much appreciate it. Thanks!
