Talk about Elk

I hope no one puts in for NM ever again... bastages really screwed the NR's unless you are willing to give the outfitters a huge chunk of $$$. I could have lived with the purchase of the NR hunting license to apply... but 8% of all tags to NR's.. that's just a waste of my time now.

Got my AZ Pronghorn and Elk apps in today. Hoping I am one of the lucky 1%er's to draw the tags.

Better odds than the lottery.

Then iowa for bow tag (should draw). Points only in colorado deer and elk. Wyoming points for deer ,elk, antelope. North dakota mule deer is another one I have good chance to draw this year with 8 bonus points.
Crap.. I hope my wife never reads this....lol


What does a year worth of collecting priority points in this many states cost a man?

You can look at my Western Draws thread where I started it by asking a similar question. Depends on the states and species though.

These are for just points.

AZ = $220 for 4 species
NV = $182 for 4 species
WY ~$100 for 3 species
UT ~$100 for 4 species

In most states you have to front the cost for the tag when you enter the draw. If you don't draw then, you get a refund minus the license and app fees.

CO even with the point only option you have to pay for the tag and then get refunded later. NM is completely random with no points. I haven't researched MT enough to understand it.

For those interested in hunting Colorado I have used this site and find it rather useful. Hunting another state isn't rocket science, it's just a longer ride in the truck!

It is looking like there will be a significant winter die off this year throughout the West. I know that Gunnison area has resorted to emergency supplemental feeding. ID is reporting die offs and UT has closed shed hunting season to prevent further stressing of the herd due to conditions. I wouldn't let this sway your decisions really, but it may be a factor when it comes to harvest reports.

And this is every other year, when you have to buy a state hunting license. The other year is just $10 a point per species.
Bargain!

I put in for several western states every year. For some hunts I do all the applications myself, for others I use a service.

www.huntinfool.com has a great service if you want to take some long shots on buying landowner tags, sheep, oryx, goats, moose, etc..........

They are good at what they do and getting better. Extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

FYI deadline is tomorrow, 2/14.

Been debating on starting to buy points in Arizona. I know today is the last day for elk and antelope...and I still haven't pulled the trigger. The idea of spending that much for several years with almost no chance to draw is tough for a guy wanting to take a trip every year.

$125 later I have Utah in. Some really neat muzzle loader seasons opened this year. Would be sweet to draw one of them....or hit the power ball.

MT is coming up, probably not going to apply for a buck tag this year. Im still going with a friend and my grandfather but Im hoping to draw a WY tag. If I dont draw WY then I will hope MT has a left over I can snag up, if not I might try for a doe tag and try to stick one with a bow.

I also put in for LBL turkey....no wonder application businesses exist, this stuff gets time consuming and not to mention very pricey.

Going elk hunting in Colorado in 2018 in a unit with OTC tags. Looking at starting to build preference points for mule deer in Colorado. How long does it typically take to get a refund from them for the cost of the tag when you do not get drawn?

You'll get the refund in July after the draw notifications.

Yea, CO takes their time on refunds. You will get your elk check back and what feels like a eternity later you will get your deer.

Got my grandfathers MT deer combo app in. I'm pretty excited about this trip, even though I'm not applying for a tag. You see, him and my good friend are going to be hunting rutting mule deer in mid Nov. All I have to do is help spot some nice ones to go after and take plenty of pictures. I'm contemplating buying a anterless tag and trying to sneak up on one with a bow.
