    Agreed! I'm in it for the long haul for elk but the general deer is what makes it worth it. I was going to burn my points for general deer last year but I guess I was in the unlucky 30% that didn't draw in my point class of 1. I want to go elk hunting this year so just a point for me. Next year I'll be 100% draw odds on all the general deer units except maybe a couple. A guy I met from Utah on my mulie hunt in NE, said there are about 3 general tags that rival the quality of about half the LE tags. He was a CWMU manager and seemed very knowledgeable. Only time will tell!

    I apply in 7 states, and between my wife and I, we apply for 44 hunts every year.

    Most of my stuff is OIL and point-building. After all these years, I have a 10% chance at a sheep tag this year... Damn, this gets expensive.

    I'm just starting out and still in college so at this point Colorado and Wyoming only. The plan it to add Utah, Idaho, and one or two more.

    I do 12:
    Wyoming
    Arizona
    New Mexico
    Utah
    Oregon
    Nevada
    Colorado
    Illinois
    Iowa
    Kansas
    Wisconsin
    Maine

    However, this list is going to decrease as so many of them are taking bait-n-switching to a new level. Already quit two, and Utah & Oregon are next on the chopping block for me, as soon as I burn very high point totals. In fact, I also dumped a few select hunts within the states I listed due to their point watering for those species.
