I really wanted to hunt muzzleloader season in area 76 but don't have enough points, thats why I was considering area 49. I do have enough points to draw first rifle season in area 76. Do you think this is a better bet.
You need to go to more of a trophy unit for a reasonable chance at a 6 point. That's almost impossible when you kill 50% of the bulls each year (meaning nearly every legal bull). 49 is not a trophy managed unit, just a crowd controlled unit. 76 is more up your alley.
Access is the best for any unit in the state probably. There's basically only a tiny amount of private land, the rest is public. There's lots of wilderness, but there's plenty of standard national forest, even some trails that you can run ATVs on. If you can't find access in 76 you're really doing something wrong.
For most on here there is a dream trip floating up around in their heads but there is a question of how to pay for it. This has been a problem for all hunters that wish for that elusive moose, bear, goat, sheep, elk, deer, or any other hunt where you are required to hire a guide or you choose to hire one for that hunt of a lifetime.
First off I am not a financial planner I am just a hunter that learned a long time ago that even with a great job there are going to be some...
