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.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
