    Kill the Trail Cam Bill

    I’m sure most of you all know that here in Nevada scopes are NOT legal during muzzleloader only hunts. I prefer it that way. It’s actually more fun hunting when you have to use skill to get closer. Muzzleloader hunts are my first of the choices in Nevada. I think it’s a more quality Hunt. If...

    Guide/outfitter recommendation for Boulder deer?

    One positive thing is your points never go away. There’s probably still a couple years before point creep will take over general season too bad. If we get a good wet year or two I will probably try to use my general season points also. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the general hunts. If...

    Kill the Trail Cam Bill

    Here’s my top three. Let’s see if elkassassin agrees. Shouldn’t be that hard to post your top three elk. 1- Drastically cut the tag numbers on general season rifle hunts. 2- Ban scopes on muzzleloader hunts. 3– Ban baiting.

    Pine Valley Dedicated Hunter

    Yes! The more time a person spends scouting and hunting a particular unit the more clues will be uncovered and knowledge gained.

    Guide/outfitter recommendation for Boulder deer?

    I get what you’re saying I have enough points to draw any general season in the state but I’m not excited about it. I’m not sure it’s worth the cost of the license and tag to go on a mediocre or likely even poor hunt. Then be unhappy with the results for what it cost to do it. Especially in a...

    Unit 53 Colorado Mule Deer

    I’ve never hunted it but I’ve been in the Gunnison basin and had a look around and it looks like great deer country. I know it used to be a monster buck area that ranked right up there with the best of them. I think it’s kind of been under the radar lately but I wouldn’t be surprised it is...

    Nevada Buck

    That’s a solid buck! You look familiar and so do those aspen trees LOL.

    Colorado Deer 23 PP...... would like to use this year

    Another thing to consider is all the people with that many points that have been applying for points only. I suspect a lot of those high point holders will be trying to draw tags this year.

    Colorado Deer 23 PP...... would like to use this year

    How many non res have 23 or more points? I would think a lot of them will be wanting to draw out this year. I would also think a high percentage of them will be applying for 3rd season. Might be better odds to draw 4th season this year.

    What do you expect for XX points?

    For a Mule Deer in states like Colorado Utah and Nevada non-residents should expect 160 class bucks to cost 17 points. 18 points: 170 19 points: 175 20 points: 180 And so on every point is worth 5 inches of score. So if you want a 200 inch deer you’ll need at least 24 points. And that’s for the...

    Pine Valley Dedicated Hunter

    Get yourself a paper map of the hunt unit and highlight all the water sources you can find on that map. Then take a drive and get familiar with the unit boundaries and the main roads that go through and learn the prominent landmarks and get a general lay of the land. Then start finding the...

    Non Res Guide Draw

    The application period Is four weeks long. If a person isn’t interested enough or resourceful enough to get their apps in on time without reminders or extensions then yes It is that simple. They shouldn’t apply.

    Non Res Guide Draw

    I do not agree with extending deadlines. In my opinion it’s just a money grab by NDOW. It penalizes the folks that apply on time by decreasing their draw odds. NDOW did the money grab last year with the regular draw with all their emails and advertising campaign urging and reminding people to...

    Unit 74 Early Rifle

    Good point Founder I agree with you 100% there. We really can’t put a worth on points. It’s not the same as it was 10 years ago or even five years ago. Things have changed it’s like inflation. It is what it is now. If you decide to invest your 18 points in a hunt that normally takes nine...

    Where did the 200 permits come from?

    Yes you can apply with a resident. You would average your points and Utah rounds down.

    Where did the 200 permits come from?

    Too bad Utah closed the buttnhole! Nevada did too!

    Where did the 200 permits come from?

    Looks like it’s going to take 18 points to pull a nonresident Vernon Muzzy tag in the bonus!

    2020 big game harvest data now online

    Why is there a discrepancy in permit numbers between the bonus point draw results pages and the harvest report data pages? Four instance hunt number 1001. Paunsaugunt archery buck deer. The bonus point draw results page says there was 25 permits for that hunt. The harvest data page says there...

    Yes that would be helpful but you can get that by using the hunt numbers. They are listed in the hunting regulations and also on the bonus point draw results pages.

    Taxidermist question

    Congratulations on taking a nice mature mule deer. I have to say I can see why you’re not happy with that mount. The ears aren’t right. It’s not a good position and he looks sleepy or half dead. I wouldn’t be able to look at that very long. I think I would either get it remounted or just get one...

    Utah trail cam tax

    I think a tax is a bad idea. Sure it will cut down on the amount of cams the regular guys use but it certainly won’t slow down the big money guys. Here’s what will happen if a tax is imposed: Big money guy buys a premium tag at the auction. He then hires big money outfitter for the hunt and big...

    Sad planning for your last hunt

    I get what you’re saying. I was thinking more about for your wife. It is a fairly easy hunt where you see a lot of deer in interesting country. Kind of like sightseeing and hunting at the same time. For you with 21 points you are out of the running for the top-tier hunts. I suggested the Pine...

    Sad planning for your last hunt

    You could do the Paunsaugunt Management rifle hunt. My son drew it last year with 21 nonresident points. We had a great time, killed a nice buck in some beautiful country. Another hunt that I think would be good is the Pine Valley limited entry muzzleloader hunt. The dates are late enough that...

    Expo on line

    I am not familiar with the rules. Can you buy multiple chances at each hunt or only one chance at multiple hunts?

    Expo on line

    I’m wondering what the average amount a person spends on drawings at the expo. Tri just said a few hundred. Is the average 100, 300, 500 or more?

    Non Res Guide Draw

    Good explanation. That does make sense. So for general big game quotas Would this year’s quota recommendations be based on last year’s success rate? For example would a high hunter success rate result in the following year having a higher quota or lower quota recommendation?

    Bruce Thanks for posting this. Would you please let me know where you got this info on increased quotas from 2020 and where I can find it? I have spoken to several Biologist with this question and they said quotas for 2021 will not be released until later in the year. They usually come out...

    POLL: Utah Trail Camera Ban

    POLL: Utah Trail Camera Ban

    I think what that means is if the camera was being used for official business such as by DWR or BLM. Then it needs to be tagged appropriately. At least that’s the way I understood it when I read the bill.

    Alton CWMU

    I know the Alton does have one Management tag available. Not sure if they would let regular Pauns management tag holders on their property or not. My son and I hunted the Rifle Management last year but by that time Most of the bucks and already moved further south. There is also an archery...

    Does anybody else think those look more like elk antlers than deer antlers? Either way I bet he’ll be glad when he finally sheds!
