Thanks for the reminder.

Fortunately, I had already entered when they opened it. I had forgotten about entering, but it won't let you enter twice!

I've been trying since year one in the bull hunt with no luck, but I'm thinking after this year ill just put in for both the cow tag hunts from now on. Elk meat is the BEST MEAT I've eaten to date! My buddy says moose beats elk but I haven't had the priveldge of eating moose yet so a couple hundred pounds of cow elk meat would make me one happy hunter!!!

Moose is incredible, but the last elk burger I ate was a shore lunch grilled up on the banks of the Madison River out of Ennis MT. Thanks for taking me back there talking about elk....

I might put in for that today.

Glad to hear the opinions on cow elk. Thought about it for a while, and put in for both the bull and cow firearm hunts. Figured it would be well worth the meat, although to be honest, if I were drawn I wouldn't know step two to save my life.

Non-residents odds of being drawn

Bull Firearm
1 in 702

Cow Firearm
1 in 98

Bull Archery
1 in 558

Cow Archery
1 in 67

I am thinking hard about doing that myself. I'd just like to have the "problem" of having to plan the hunt. This is only my second year of applying.

I should start working on my bow skills (and equipment) so that I can boost my odds. My bow isn't really up to snuff for elk.

Believe me, no guide is needed. When I drew, it was a cow tag, and you could take her with a bow during bow season, or hunt the firearm season, or the last bow season. I took a cow that probably dressed about 600lbs. I bet I passed at least 10 different bulls, 5x5s or better within 40 yds, and had a monster 8x8 two days in range. Seen hundreds of Elk, not near as wild as western Elk. Most of the Elk are on coal mine property, they give you a free permit and map. They even came and helped me load my elk with a loader. The least amount of work Ive ever done packing an Elk out. The Bull tag is a LONG shot, cow archery is a ball!

If I could change my choices I would have put in for both cow tags...
