I'm trying to plan my buddies and my trip to hunt hopefully drawn Bull elk tag (HAHAHAHA 1st yr draw HAHAHAHAH) but more then likely an OTC 2-3rd season gun or Left over tag. I might try and get a WY and or CO OTC ARchery tag also.

any one help me get off on the right foot. I really dont care about points....ok i'm fibbing HA! I do want points but i would rather my first time ever be fun and sucessful. Thanks guys. This is going to happen so the more help hte better!

If you draw a tag in Utah you will have the possibility of a great hunt and a great bull but. The odds of drawing a limited entry bull tag for a non resident the first year is out there a ways. Utah uses a bonus point system instead of a preference point system, in that you may draw with no points or it may take you 10 years or more to draw. When I drew my Book Cliff tag for an elk I had 9 bonus points witch isn't too bad. The problem is that my nephew had put in and drew the same tag twice before I had my first one. He drew the first time with no points and after the 5 year waiting period he drew the second tag with 1 point.. Utah does have some any bull areas but most of the state is spike only for the over the counter tags.
