I went 0 for 3 as well, I'm kinda mad though, the doe tag i put in for i had a 95% chance of drawing and still nothing, oh well maybe next year. It will actually work out though I'm gonna hunt OTC archery again this year for both Deer and Elk. I'm going to do a 10 day back pack wilderness hunt. My dad went 1 for 3 drawing the doe tag we applied for in whick makes no sence to me because i had 3 points and he only had 2 but thats how it goes sometimes. Next year he will have enough points for either Wenaha or Mt Emily elk hunt so he's already planning for that. Good luck to the rest of you.
We got our confirmation cards in the mail today, though we had already checked online shortly after midnight. Both my fiance and myself got Elk spike tags for Starkey unit and neither one of us got a deer tag which is what we were really wanting to go for. I guess I need to start prepping for hauling a heavier load and a change in my rifle of choice.
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
