Well, I am now up to 13 preference points and drew my second choice for archery in 444. Next year I will start to look in to the ranching for wildlife permits for both deer and antelope.

Critter,

Just curious, why not 21 3rd season? Something against it?

Third season I hunt deer in Utah since I have a lifetime license there and it is an automatic license. I am keeping my options open here in Colorado and may try a black powder season in the right area. I have hunted deer in the Book Cliffs in Utah just across the border from 21 and have seen some great deer so that is a possibility. My biggest problem is hunting 5 states for deer and elk and keeping all the seasons in line so that I don't screw myself up with two great hunts for the same week.

Got a point and drew a 2nd choice tag hopefully next year I will cash in on a great tag.

Got it Critter. I just started collecting UT points myself and was interested in BC's, how many years did it take or should I expect to wait?

Utah's point system is a joke. For everything except for general deer they give out "Bonus" points instead of preference points. The bonus points only give you a little bit more chance to draw out. I had a relative draw out twice while I was waiting to draw the same tag the first time. He drew his first tag with no points then had to wait 5 years to put back in for the draw. He drew his second tag 2 years after he could put back in. It took me 9 years to draw the Book Cliff elk tag and at 7:05 on the opening I had a 379 bull on the ground. Now I am trying to draw a Book Cliff muzzle loader tag and have 9 points for that, along with 10 points for a Buffalo tag. My favorite past time in the early part of the year is to put in for tags that I just can't draw. It is a good thing that I retired last year and have all this time to hunt, now if I could just draw the right tags.

Critter, I do the same thing. I put in for all sorts of stuff I had little chance of actually drawing. I always say there is no offseason, just scouting season, hunting season(s) and application season. I got points all over the west, and I'm in for moose drawings in the northeast (Maine, VT, NH), almost none of which I have any hope of actually drawing. But I'm very careful not to try to schedule too many things too close to each other.

lmao, crazy, but i guess someones got to get them and since I only have to buy the license once every two years, it's not to bad. Guess I'll just plan on general every few years....thanks for the info. Oh, and for $10 i believe, I am collecting bonus also.
