I was wondering what the "backdoor" method was.  If what you describe is right then I did get my first choice elk tag - COOL!!!  Now instead of the suspense of learning my tag fate I am now eagerly waiting for October to be here!!!

looks like I'm all set now

Pretty much everything my group thought we'd draw, got drawn.  I did gamble with my work schedule a little bit and had my girlfriend put in for a 4th season tag that I can't tag along with (so she probably won't use), so other than that, things look good.  And it looks like I'll be able to have the time I need for an extended archery hunt.

I'll have a good time on my elk hunt. I'm hoping for some kind of deer tag from the leftover list.

I did not draw my 2nd or 3rd

I did not draw my 2nd or 3rd choice according to people at a other forums.  For those who drew there should be a 500 level code.  I only have a 400 level code and the 500 did not come up like others have. 

2012 - 481 NON RES ELK APP

2012 - 059 HABITAT STAMP WITH A LICENSE

 

Oh well, looks like OTC, now I have to decide whether I will do an archery hunt or 2nd season rifle.

Looks like the boy and I are

Looks like the boy and I are going to unit 10, 4th season for cows.  Not our first choices, but should be a good hunt.  Hopefully not too cold.  I'm kind of a fair weather September & October elk hunter.

All that worry for nothing. 

All that worry for nothing.  I should just wait a few days later to look next year....

Drew my first choice elk tag (a 1st season cow rifle tag in my honey hole), will also be picking up an OTC either sex archery elk tag.

Got my second choice antelope tag (late season doe), and will also pick up an OTC either sex antelope archery tag.  I should draw my WY tag as well, so hopefully I can score on one of those hunts.

Aso got my second choice deer tag (3rd season rifle buck).  Bummed I'm not going to be chasing muleys with the bow this year....but that should give me a good excuse to hold out a bit longer on elk and goats, without trying to fit a deer hunt into the mix.

I drew 2nd choice

I drew my 2nd choice, MZ cow in 35, 36, 361. Looking forward to a good hunt. I need to figure out the best way to pop a cow during or near the rut. Should be fun. Last year all I saw was bulls during MZ, but only two of them.
