    Max points for Wyoming?

    Soooooo, yeah. I'm sitting on max points for deer in Wyoming as a non-resident (I know I know - no one has any business having max points for deer in Wyoming). I've had other things going on in years past so I've just been buying points. This year might be an ideal year for me to actually apply...

    So, I'm trying to get an accurate velocity reading for my new rifle set up. I personally do not own a chronograph but my brother-in-law does and he would let me use it anytime.

    Remember when...

    Remember back when having a LE elk tag meant that shooting a bull smaller then 370" meant utter failure?? Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but it really seems like times have change over the past 10 years. I'm not sure whether that's a bad thing or a good thing! It seems to me that it's...

    Currently I have 12 points for deer here in Utah and max points for deer in Wyoming. Over the past couple of years I have been trying to put a value on bonus points (JUST FOR FUN).

    So each year I try to increase my hunting budget by a bit. so I recently confronted the wife and "told" her that my hunt budget for 2012 will be $2,000.
