Struck out on Last Draw

Well, I struck out on my last draw for the year when Arizona didn't draw my name for my Kaibab deer hunt this year.  I thought that I would have a chance but no such luck. 

Now I'll just have to have fun with my Colorado muzzle loader hunt for elk in unit 61, Utah general deer, and possibly a general season elk tag in Utah.  I am leaving the deer alone in Colorado this year due to the elk tag.  After waiting 17 years that is going to be my main priority.

But come next year I have a trip in the works.  More about that one later.

While it is a slight bummer

While it is a slight bummer you didn't draw, maybe it's good you don't spread yourself too thin.  That 61 tag could be awesome, focus on that one. Plus, it's not like 3 hunts between Co and UT is chump change...... Wink

I have a vision of one year

I have a vision of one year to start hunting in August and end in February along with hitting 4 or 5 states while doing it.  All this would be while hunting deer, elk, antelope, and javelina. 

One can only dream.

Maybe you'll get that Kaibab

Maybe you'll get that Kaibab tag next year. This is what my fall looks like so far:

New Mexico: Archery deer
Arizona: Rifle coues deer
Texas: Still waiting for the results of their very limited public hunts.
Colorado: This year I just got a point for elk which I plan on using next year. I now have a total of three points.

Good luck on your hunts!

I figured that it would be a

I figured that it would be a long shot this year so I actually put in for the hunt instead of just a point.  I have 7 or 8 now I think. 

I'll proabably draw Arizona next year since I have a 95% chance of drawing my ML tag in Utah.  I should of drew it this year but 9 of us had max points and there were only 10 nonresident tags offered.  So 5 went to max point holders and the rest into the draw.  Some lucky person drew with 0 points. 

I am also planning a trip to South Africa next spring so I can throw that into the works for the luck of the draw.  I could keep my taxidermest quite busy next summer and fall if all my plans work out.

I look forward to reading about your Africa hunt.
