I just changed back to 2nd

I just changed back to 2nd rifle for buck. I was trying to avoid hunting with all those hunters, but it's better than not hunting at all. I still have ek for ML season, so all is good.

Thanks all!

Thanks all!  This is like a combination of swinging at a pinata with a blindfold, and playing battleship with an opponent who cheats.

What is the rationale of an early April deadline with no advanced info on the quotas?  I understand the alleged need to assess the herds beforehand.  Why not set the deadline in late May?

This is probably the only state lottery where the odds are set after you place your bet.

Yeah... pass the cheese, and I'll stop whining. LOL

not sure

I'd imagine its because of paper applications, which are time consuming to load into a program.  Wouldn't surprise me if they did away with paper apps eventually to speed things up.  They also want the draw done early enough in the year so that people can plan their vacation/hunt. 

So, why it takes so long to get that done is partly because we have seasons going on until the end of January.  They have to compile and analyze harvest stats and population surveys, then model the population.  And there's a lot more than just elk populations to analyze.  The Commission probably doesn't want to have to meet every week (they have real jobs too) during the winter to approve this stuff piecemeal.  Once the quotas are approved, this all happens pretty quickly now, pretty much two draws per week after that May meeting.

I might be upset if it wasn't

I might be upset if it wasn't such a beautiful state to live in with lots of elk.  Yes

Oh!  Big smile I had preference points on my mind, and couldn't figure out what you were saying.
