  • Are you applying for any tags this year?

    Applied tonight for Montana and I'm getting stoked for this fall. Who else is making plans?

    No sir. Good luck to you and the kid!
    We have several "draw" hunts close by. Unfortunately, they are all "walk in" areas, which kinda leaves this old cripple out! Therefore, I just don't apply.

      Just applied for a moose permit in Maine today for my father and I. He moved to Maine last fall so he gets to apply as a resident with significant better chances than myself as a non-resident. Either way, we are each others sub-permittee's so if one of us gets it we both get to go hunting! I was drawn in 2010 but's he's never gotten a tag. Fingers crossed!

        What I wouldn't give to hunt with my pop again! Heavens but we had a blast!
        Best wishes to you and your pop!

        Moose1980 - If you're new here:
        First!
        WELCOME!
        Second!
        Do you keep a hunting/fishing/outdoor journal?
        If not, I will encourage you to start!
        I didn't start until in my 50's. I missed recording over 30 years of outdoor experiences with friends and family.
        You don't have to write "War and Peace" each time, but a short narrative with details like date, time, temp and weather, who was with you, etc.
        Noting failures is just as important as big successes.

            Thanks guys. Good luck to all who are applying for tags. Bubba, I've been around for several years now. I just don't post that often, 9 years according to F&S. I do get quite the enjoyment out of reading everyone's posts though and have learned a few things over the years.

                My (soon-to-be) 12 year old son drew a cow elk tag in Wyoming, so I'll be going going along as guide/parent/schlepper, etc. I'm really excited and we'll probably pick up some antelope tags as well.

                  My work schedule is what really limits me, I don’t want to draw a tag and spend the money, only for my leave to get denied a week before the season. I’m applying for another WY mule deer point, and I’m going to try to start building sheep points so that I can maybe hunt them before I’m too old for the hike in. If it looks like I will be able to go hunt, I’ll apply for a leftover tag or go somewhere OTC.

                    Preference point only for CO elk and deer. Unit I usually hunt is OTC bull license. I’ll apply for various WA permit hunts outside of the General Season. Also applied for multi-season elk which allows any and all open seasons and weapons. I’ll just hunt regular rifle deer seasons punctuated by waterfowl hunting with the Labs.

                      Outlaw, you should read some of Tyler Freel accounts of his sheep hunts. He is a contributing author for OL and can also be reached at Points North. He guides but also has some 4 or 5 sheep on solo hunts. You are right about a young mans hunt. https://www.facebook.com/OLPointsNorth/

                        I rather hunt waterfowl anyways most of the time.

                          Very nice. Using the 7-08?

                            Sounds like a good plan. Sheep were a dream as a kid, but I’m probably at the tipping point to bother with it now. Not to mention the cost associated.

                              I followed your post on the ‘fire about the Colorado permit application changes, it was an interesting read. I blame you for leading me there btw, hadn’t heard of the site until you mentioned it sometime back. Can’t undo it now, lol.

                              You get another lab? It’s been awhile since you’ve mentioned waterfowl and I seem to recall you having just one.
