It is often interesting to look at the list after it comes out and see where you stand with the tag that you drew. I put in for a deer archery tag for my second choice and drew it. Looking at the left overs there are only 4 left. Also my 4th season cow elk tag as a second draw isn't a gimme anymore since there are no left overs for my area.
There is good and bad it all depends on the unit. A lot of the left over cow elk tags will depend on some snow to push them off of the private property and onto either the forest service or BLM. Also for what is left you should know the area that you are buying a tag for and not go into it blind.
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...
