    Not to rub it in. But got home today and checked mail? I pulled a Ky bull elk rifle tag! I am still walking on air. Good luck to all that have not heard yet.

    I'm right there with you! :D Waiting for Utah before I put in for Idaho. As usual :rolleyes:
    Cards have started getting hit as of last Thursday for Utah. I think it will take 'til mid week before all done. Hopefully results up on website next week.
    Pretty much all hail Mary's for me, but you never know! Fingers crossed.
    Good luck!
    Congrats MMAL! (y)

    My card got hit but since I put four of us in-no telling who drew it for what. Emails supposed to be out by Wednesday. Don't forget to apply for Wyoming by the 31st if you haven't already done it.

    Looking forward to hearing the details of the results @Firebird . I hope it's something awesome! What did you apply for?
    For me, Henry Mountains deer, Nine Mile Big Horn Sheep, Henry's Bison and bonus points for everything else.
    Great reminder for Wyoming. I've been accumulating points for deer and antelope. Going to be points again this year.

    I have spent a small fortune over the last 12+ years. The only good thing I drew was elk tag in New Mexico and antelope tag in Wyoming. I have no hope for this year....

    Holy smokes @jeff that's gotta be some kind of record. I wish you the very best of luck in next year's draw! You've got some great sheep hunting right in your back yard.

    Well, the dreaded email from Utah arrived 25 minutes ago. No surprises, just confirmation.
    UNSUCCESSFUL on all apps
    Now I can apply for Idaho :)

    @LivingTheDream sorry to hear it. We'll get 'em next year :) Lot's of people in this here boat with us :D
    I still have a shot in the Idaho draw, but the tags I'm applying for are long shots. Will probably be hunting general seasons for elk, whitetail and bear. Lion and wolf next winter.

    Yeah I pretty much apply to all the long shot ones. Utah the odds are horrible but you have to apply because you just never know. I got Nevada and then need to make a decision on Arizona.

    In five years we will probably be having this same conversation.

    I was trying to draw unit 16 with 2 of my picks last year and unit 23 as a third choice.
    My first time to put in for a draw anywhere for anything.
    I drew 23 which is not nearly as good as 16 even though it's across the road from it.
    I felt blessed, though, in getting a pretty nice 6x6 with a kicker.
    unit 16 would have easily produced a much larger bull.
