Got the applications in. Buying a house has forced me to stay local this year, with the exception of my annual hunt with my Dad in Vermont. So, I put in for a doe tag, elk, and sheep out here in CA. The elk and sheep are long shots, so I won't hold my breath.
Will probably end up with the doe tag, and buy an OTC archery tag. Then it's only a wait of less than 3 months until dove and archery deer open up. Can't wait!
