Has anyone out there been lucky enough to get a lottery bighorn tag in Oregon?
from what i've learned about the state, they have good bighorn numbers and habitat, but they do not have preference points, so getting a tag may litterally be improbable in your lifetime.
some of the statistics say your odds yearly are 1/2500. and since they have no point system, they never improve.
i'm seriously thinking about applying for this hunt, but didn't really know anyone who's done it.
i would like to hear some stories if you've gotten the tag. how's access to these areas? can you drive close to the hunting areas, like within 5 miles?
is this endeavor just a lesson in patience and futility.
