Received notice draw results are in.
drew some nice areas around here.
Elk, area 113, 10% draw odds, this will be a nice change, an hour from home and lower elevation elk herd. Not my normal 9,000-10,000 ft elevation camp
Antelope, area 27 30% draw odds
General deer, over the counter.

two weeks to see if I won the lottery on a governors buffalo tag.

what’s everyone hunting this season.

Elk ,bear,deer, hogs.

I drew a great elk area in Idaho. Been scouted already elk ate there will have my bud scout once more in Aug.

Grizz area so itll be selfbow with a big bore strapped to my chest.

Good luck. Good on the draw for ya.

Iowa.. turkeys and deer…

Definitely some rabbits..my wife got herself an apprentice hunting license this year, and she wants to try rabbits as well. Looking forward to some long peaceful days doing that with her.

I put in for 5 states- nada. Now I have 20 points for elk in Nev with a less than 1% chance of drawing one of the few top units.

I thought it might be trouble so I paid way too much for an elk landowner tag early in the year. I felt like an idiot spending that much money but now I’m glad I did. Problem is, I’ve never set foot in the unit And I will be hunting solo.

As you know I’m sure onX is a great tool, is the landowner willing to give any pointers.
dang Nv is 1% draw odds for non res. Not sure what the odds were when I lived there.

Yeah, I use GAIA but its the same as Onx.

The LO tag I bought is through a broker….I’m hunting the unit not a private ranch. In fact, the unit has a huge wilderness.

I’m not to worried about finding elk. I’ve hunted new country 25-30x over the many decades of elk hunting with a bow. I think Im just going to put a pack saddle on a rented mule/horse with a light backpack type camp and keep moving. Then its all about lacing my boots and covering ground. I have the time…as long as my body can hold out.

First hike in the hills with a 40# pack yesterday- dang I’m sore but I need to step up the workouts.
Hitting Yosemite in a few weeks with my Mtn goat kids, that will help too.
