I hope this is finally the year!!

Been waiting a long time for the opportunity. Even if it's only a cow tag, just getting to camp and experience the backcountry elk habitat will be an amazing experience! Getting an elk will be nice too! Dancing

You'll draw something.  There's nothing like a high country elk hunt.  I'm betting you'll at least have a cow tag and will love the hunt.

Probably, I just hope it's my 1st or 2nd choice, and not the 4th. But I'll make the best of anything for sure! Yes

Good luck on your draw. Like

Good luck on your draw. Like most folks I hate the 2 month wait to see what or if you draw and what choice you get. If my luck holds out my wife and I should draw our first choice which is an either sex ML tags this year. If you draw I am sure you will not be disappointed in a backcountry elk hunt. Hope to see a post on you drawing and photos after your hunt.

If we draw our either sex

If we draw our either sex tags we will be hunting unit 12/23. If we get our second choice, cow, we will be hunting in unit 55. Either hunt will be great and look forward to seeing if and what we draw.
