    Second Drawing

    Did anyone get their second draw tags yet? I received my doe tag. I thought it was fast considering the payment deadline was July 16th.

    Second Drawing

    Ouch! I hate it when draw odds are published and see that you're on the wrong side of the coin flip. Years ago I had a seven years in a row of applying for a coin toss draw and didn't get it.

    2021 draw odds are out

    I saw some NR archery deer hunts that are really easy to draw. Of course easy to draw tags are usually low success.

    2021 draw odds are out

    It's hard to watch the odds for hunts get worse every year. I wonder how bad they have to get before that nonrefundable game hunting license becomes a deterrent. I think it worked out to about $30 per application because I submitted 4 applications. I guess I need to apply for everything to...

    Pig Hide Tanned

    My brother smoked a pork belly the other day and fried some cracklings. It was good. I remember my Grandmother talk about when they killed hogs during the depression and how much she loved fresh cracklings. The rest of the pig was smoked or salted because they didn't have electricity. I bet $5...

    It smelled pretty good during the smoking process.

    It would be stylish.

    Pig Hide Tanned

    I did a hide myself. I substituted eggs for brains and smoked it. Now I have to oil it to make it soft.

    I got a doe pronghorn tag to go with my pronghorn buck tag. :)

    Your best wind story from WY…

    I peed on the side of the south of Rocksprings and the wind blew it to Cheyenne. They got lucky because I was able to "hold" the gas station sushi to a proper facility :)

    CO - Credit Cards: Any hits yet?

    I've got pronghorn. I don't know what choice yet.

    CO - Credit Cards: Any hits yet?

    I got my second choice deer, but I'm most excited about my moose point. :)

    CO - Credit Cards: Any hits yet?

    I got a CC fee. Are we sure it's deer because I'm in for pronghorn too? If it's deer it has to be a 2nd to 4th choice because I went for points.

    No dice for me! I had a 1% chance. :)

    ELK

    The February elk draw results sure were nice. I remember back when NR and antelope were applied for in mid March and we had to wait until June for results. I think that helped a little to increase draw odds.

    CO - Credit Cards: Any hits yet?

    Yep. The most valuable lesson I learned from that movie is to check the suitcase full of money for a transponder. I also really want a shotgun suppressor. :)

    I believe they post at 10 MST. I like to log in on all my devices to help crash the system. ;)

    Here's from my records for what I drew last year.: Deer billed on 6/2 and emailed 6/3. (Tuesday and Wednesday) Pronghorn billed on 6/4 and emailed 6/4 (Thursday) Nonresident

    Texas Draw 2020

    The skull on the left is from 2010 (aged mature by the biologist) and right is from last year. The right skull appears bigger. Left is from South Texas (Chaparral) and Right is Black Gap. The left skull has much greater teeth wear, they're worn flat.

    Texas Draw 2020

    I'll have to find my other skull and post a picture of them together. I'm curious now.

    Texas Draw 2020

    I don't think it was an old javelina, it's yellow because I haven't degreased it yet. I like to eat them too. I made all trail bologna out of this one. One day I want to make tamales from one.

    2B tag drawn in New Mexico

    I've hunted there twice and shot small bucks, but a friend killed a 150ish 4x4. First rifle hunts. One year the migration had started and I bet we saw hundreds of does and forks every day. They were walking through camp, and it was fun to watch. I would take that tag without hesitation.

    Spring Turkey strategies

    My favorite screw up is when I get up for a "P" break only to flush the gobbler that was silently coming in from behind.

    Seriously?

    All that silver skin and membranes disappear when you can the meat. They disappear into the best wild game broth while the meat just falls apart.

    Anyone change or add an application?

    Yes.

    Colorado point creep

    I applied for a point and late whitetail hunts. Maybe I'll get to see a new area and get some food.
  33. BigChiefJ

    Deadline Extended

    Well I "upgraded" my application to a higher point hunt. Now I probably won't draw, but one applicant with less points will get my original April 6th choice. I figure this is my year to draw in NM. :)

    Colorado point creep

    I forgot to mention where I originally applied. It's changed about 19 times since the original "deadline". :)

    Deadline Extended

    I still have time to change or stick with my original application. Sometimes a random draw is easier because there's no points to worry about wasting. I'm turkey hunting today.

    Deadline Extended

    I was getting errors at 7:59 and finally got back in about 8:02. The modify choice was gone then. I was even put in a queue like when trying to buy leftover licenses.
  37. BigChiefJ

    Deadline Extended

    I saw it crash because I was logged in to see if the ability to modify an application disappeared at the deadline. Maybe I was part of crashing the system. ;) It's like trying to be logged in for the moment draw results are posted.

    Deadline Extended

    After the agonizing process to decide and use points, they extend the deadline! Now I have to keep thinking about whether or not to use those points. Thanks Colorado!

    Colorado point creep

    I sent 14 points for a hunt that took 6 last year. I'm going to hunt instead of chasing points!
