    Yep two Quintons. Muley Hunter isn't quazy though so that makes it easy to tell them apart

    UH, like you said, you should draw with 22 points. I've never had that many points anywhere but when I've dropped a lot of points on a hunt it has always been kind of a bitter sweet deal for me. Can't wait for the hunt but knowing when it's over I'm back swimming in the bottom of the barrel.

    Awesome that you had the patience to wait so long to apply for a premium tag. I didn't have the will-power! Only made it to 5 points on a deer and still going on elk points in Colorado. Lol

    Good luck and can't wait to hear about it!!!

    Good luck, I think you made the right choice, you never know what going to happen in the next 5 year plan and it looks like you would have had a few years to wait for Unit 2. Not sure if my dad gave you any of his areas he hunts in 61 when you talked, but I'm sure he would be willing to help if you had anymore questions.

    Good luck, should be a hunt of a lifetime.

    Thank you all for the encouraging words. I will do my best to kill a great bull, but most of all I want to keep it in perspective and have an awesome time. It will be the first rut elk hunt my wife has participated in. Thanks again!

    Good luck UH! I hope your hunt goes better than you hope for. I think late September is going to be a spectacular time to be chasing bulls.

    I for one will be more than happy to quit chasing a 300" bull unit, pack up my 18 points and burn them on multiple low point hunts after point banking is officially adopted. I just can't imagine burning 20+ points for something that is far from a slammer trophy hunt. Much, much better return on investment to break them up in my opinion. Same for deer. I intend to break those up and use them on the same low point archery hunts as I learn the unit on several consecutive years. I've been fortunate to draw some great tags in NV, AZ, UT, NM & WY. Passed on several bulls in WY last year that I was told would be top end for CO unit 61. Just been dyin to get off that CO hamster wheel, and looks like it will finally happen. But good luck to anyone who draws 61 this year. Hope you get your point's worth.
