It seems like I've been doing this "point thing" for years. Ha! Since then I have not hunted mule deer. I can't believe this is what was intended when it began. But every year I have this "inner fear" of burning these precious points. I wait till the deadline is looming every year, grind out the last bit of information from every god given website or magazine that hands can get a hold of to come to the mindset I have today. I actually waited till the last night one year, woke up in the recliner 30 minutes past midnight, the deadline. That's one year I gave it to much thought.
OK, here we are, one day to go, are you going to be a deer hunter or a point hunter this year.
I could use some advice, no doubt. I'm 58 years old, non-res.
I've never been to unit 61 in my life, but for some reason this is where I want to go. I have elk hunted in 62 and 70. Would you wait untill you get enough points to rifle hunt or would you apply for a muzzleloader tag? I don't think I'm interested in an archery hunt.
Are there any units one could draw on second choice?
Thanks so much, Jay.
Wish you all the best in the draw.
