    Woodtick: That area you were talking about deer hunting (142) I think almost always has leftover cow tags and it is usually a pretty long season. Especially on that Horse Creek Area. That is probably why you already changed to elk, though.

    We hunt either above Cokeville on the Rock Creek/Dempsey area or over by Kemmerer/La Barge on the Commissary Ridge for cow elk.

    My grandfather didnt draw it last year with 2 pp in the special app.

    I checked the Wyoming draw results for last year. 2 points was 100 percent draw odds. Hopefully your grandfather draws this year. I'm hoping my father draws this year. Good luck

    Yep, something is screwy because the stats show that nobody applied with 2PPs and it went on into the <2PP pool where it was a 100% draw and then on into the 1PP pool where there was a 55.56% chance at drawing the remaining tags. Are you sure he had 2 PPs and entered the Special Draw because that's not what the stats show?

    I was gonna say I poured through the draw odds and was certain with 3 general points I'd be a guarantee for 83. My buddy only had one point when we applied so he put in for special which last year was in the 50's%.

    I apologize, he had only 1pp, last time I looked he had 2 (because he did not draw the 83 tag) but the year before I think it was 100% odds with 1pp in the spec app then dropped when he applied...go figure.

    Okay, as that's sort of what I thought might have been the case.
