    Colorado's weighted point fee for sheep?

    What's the consensus on the $100 preference point/weighted point for sheep in Colorado? I'm sitting at 3 pref and 18 weighted points. Can't see how purchasing another weighted point will help me much in the nonresident draw. Any thoughts?

    Alternate tag 065 deer.

    Received an email from NDOW, stating that I have been selected for this tag. To say I'm surprised is an understatement. Lived in the Elko area for 18 years, so I'm familiar with 065. Have there been any big fires out there this year?

    Wy G&F website..WTF?

    I wonder how much money was wasted on creating this? Who thought making a toolbar that covers 40% of the page was a good idea?

    2014: What a year!!

    I've always wondered what too many tags would look like, and this year I got to experience it. I'm fairly certain I won't be able to repeat the hunting season my family had in 2014. First up was my daughter"s bison on Aug 15th. This hunt lasted less than an hour: Next up was my...

    Wyoming Moose

    After a week of hunting (My plan A bull got whacked by someone else), a couple of friends located this old guy for me. A plan was put together to push the small pocket of quakies where my bull, three other bulls, and a cow had bedded in. The drive worked perfectly, and I was able to connect...

    Nevada ewe hunts

    Anyone have information regarding this new hunt? What specie, Cali or desert? Will there be any non-resident permits? I've called a couple of NDOW offices, and the people I talked to weren't quite sure of the specifics.

    Kids and antelope 2012

    Like I've said before, kids and antelope hunting go together like peas and carrots. Had 2 great hunts this past week. The first was with my 13 yr old daughter this past Wednesday. With her first buck tag in hand we set out to find her a decent one. We made a great stalk, and she connected on...

    Antelope and kids II

    Goforbroke's post got me thinking how special Wyoming antelope hunting is. This past Sunday I was able to take two of my kids out to look for some doe antelope. This was my 12 yr old daughter's first big-game animal. Quite a proud moment for both her and me! This was my 15 yr old's...

    Got my Wyoming bull.

    I had a quick hunt, finding this bull about an hour into the opening morning. A short stalk and one shot later, I had my largest bull elk to date.

    A 16yr old's Wyo Moose

    Two days after my Colorado deer hunt, a friend of mine called me to see if I can help with his son's moose hunt. They hadn't been successful in locating a good bull, and his son had missed a couple of little bulls. The morning we headed out, the weather had turned cold, and there was quite a...

    WY area 31-1!

    My 14 year old drew this on his first try as a resident. We hunted cows there last year, and saw an amazing number of bulls. Can't wait to share this experience with my son!

    Awfully quiet after Wyo draw

    It sure seems that MM members didn't fare well this year. Usually there are a bunch of guys who got lucky with a moose or sheep tag. I thought my wife a was sure deal with her points, but it seems every year she misses it by just a wee bit. Best of luck to all with those coveted tags!

    Will 10 non-ressy points be enough....

    to draw a 2nd season 21 deer tag this year? I hope it will be because I applied yesterday. Best of luck to all in the draws!

    WY Moose: where did you apply?

    Now that the application period is over, where did everyone apply? Put the wife in for area 27, resident, with 9 points. Last year this was 100% draw with 9, 20% with 8. Hope she draws! Best of luck to all that applied!

    My $27 binocs are nice.

    Stopped by the Lehi Cabela's today. I bought the Cabela's Euro 10x42. Total cost was 747. I had $570 in Cabela's points to spend. I got my promo gift card activated for $150, so my binos basically ended up costing me $27. Very nice optics for the price!

    Wy moose apps & economy?

    According the the G&F, elk applications were down 14% from last year. I'm thinking the moose applications will show a larger decrease, as people will wait and pay the $75 for points only. I applied my wife in an area that has been 100% draw the last 4 years for a non-ressy with 8 points. She...

    Last year's ram: he won!

    Just found out that my ram from last year won first place in the Wyoming Guides and Outfitter's Association 2007 big game awards. Another cool thing is the first place animal is called the Courtney Feeley memorial award. Best of luck to all that have sheep hunts this fall!
