    What's wrong with 118?

    I'm trying to figure out where to put in for deer.

    I see that only 31 residents applied first choice for 32 permits in Area 118 last year.

    When I see 100% draw odds I usually assume the tag is no good. But, is 118 really that bad?

    I think if you just want to kill a deer its not bad, not many big bucks.

    Where I hunt general deer there aren't many big bucks anyway. Well, maybe there are, I don't know. It's hard to tell looking through all the orange.

    With only 40 tags I'd think it ought to be better than a general hunt. At least a guy would have some more elbow room.

    What would you guys prefer... 118 or General?

    307---I'd take an LQ unit like that over a general tag any day just to hunt without seeing all that orange you mentioned! That, to me, is a big part of whether you have a quality hunt or not and not just killing a big animal.
