Thanks man, I was just about to post the same thing. I didn't draw my 1st season either sex tag, but I got the cow tag in the same area. That way I can at least hunt with the rest of the guys. Now I've got to wait until the deer draw to finalize my elk AND deer plans.

Me and my dad drew second choice cow muzzle tags and uncle drew a bull muzzle tag. Me and dad got our points for bull tags next year. Hoping to draw a muzzle buck tag to go with the cow. We'll see, excited none the less.
