While all these back doors are interesting they do me very little good as I always apply for multiple choices for every species. I know I could go ahead and call but have decided I don't want to do that for each and every one so I'm just going to wait and see how it all played out when it posts on the website.
I only applyed in one area this year. I won a hunt on norman ranch( arch. Antalope) last year with the Craig chamber of commerce it is good for two years so my fingers are crossed. If i don't get a tag this year it was sure fun dreaming about it.
It is always interesting to see if you drew or not. Now just what you drew is a good question at times. I know that on my elk tag that I drew a fourth season cow tag since I put in for a preference point for my first choice and then the cow tag. As far as the antelope I put in for a area that required 14 points last year and I have 17 so that should be a tag I hope. Now for deer I tried something new this year. A preference point for the first choice then a archery tag in unit 44 just for hopes, then a muzzleloader tag in 444 and if all else fails a archery tag in 444. This is the first year that I put in for 4 choices for deer so I'll see how it works out.
As far as knowing what I really drew, I have been waiting around 3 months now so a couple extra weeks isn't going to hurt.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
