I just got my leftover letter today too. It's exactly the same list as in the drawing summary with tags that have a "current balance". Some DOW desk jockey told someone the other day that it wouldn't be the same. Wrong.
I'm doing my doe shooting/meat hunting in Wyoming this year (assuming I draw those at least-2 antelope, 2 deer hopefully), was looking forward to chasing something with antlers in my home state. And New Mexico just rained on my parade, then Nevada the week prior. The hits just keep on coming.
Maybe I'll just go to Nebraska and screw trying to draw a 4th season leftover tag here.
I love Pine Ridge deer hunting
Hope wyoming comes through for ya , a buddy of mine is going out for pronghorn if he gets a tag. Was hoping to see ya in 53...Your parade is due for a sunny day.. If all else fails you are more than welcome to come to Md .and shoot whitetails in my yard. somehow it's just not the same though...
Thanks man, I'll find something to chase around here this year. I'll still have 3 elk tags to use, two of which are for antlered game in Idaho, plus the OTC bull tag (which I try not to resort to using).
The record books, that are put out by Boone & Crocket and Pope & Young and where I live is Henry Kelsey they are a great way to research a state or a province for big game. This does take some time but the knowledge it gives you, can be very valuable. Not all hunters have their trophies recorded, as where I live after the Hanson Buck became the new world record typical Whitetail, we saw a flood of hunters and now that has happened, some hunters are shying away from the record books but...
