Most of us got out tags.....so our group will have a total of 8 tags...not counting some that will up there with us but not camping with us. My wife and I both drew two doe tags each..so we should have plenty of antelope meat for some more summer sausage and jerky.
I just checked the results when I read this and found out that we did in fact draw our any antelope tags as expected with three preference points. We didn't apply for any doe tags as I was short of money at the time but if it's anything like normal I will still be able to pick some up as leftovers later when they go on sale.
Only 3 months to go and we'll all be hunting again.
First of all, if you haven't gone winter backpacking, it needs to happen in the near future. It puts a very unique twist on the summer version of the activity. Yes, it's cold but it's nothing that being prepared can't remedy. Beyond it's therapeutic and recreational value, I think it is a very good tool for the big game hunter as well. I don't think that you can spend too much time getting to know the ins and outs of the area that you hunt. And there is no better way to gain experience in...
