    Another off range oryx down!

    I hit the jackpot drawing some exceptional tags this year and one of those tags was off range oryx! The first morning, my girlfriend Cindy spotted an oryx, but it was on the range and off limits. Later that morning, we snubbed a young bull that was off the range but pretty small and not what we...

    Nevada archery success!

    It was day 10 of a 23 day archery season and the weather was very hot and dry. Bulls were bugling but not really chasing cows or rutting very hard. A few bulls had started gathering cows but it was still mostly pre rut. I found a good hiding spot up against a pine tree that was on a small ridge...

    Unit 104, 108 and 121 archery elk

    I have this archery elk tag and wondered if anyone on MM has hunted this unit during the archery season? I have talked to several guys who had the rifle tag and they have generously shared info/experiences from their rifle hunts. I spent 5 days in the unit last week and will scout for about a...

    Unit 49 bull moose after 19 years!!!

    After 19 years of applying, I finally hit the jackpot and drew CO moose! Luckily, I know the unit really well since I hunted sheep there in 2017 and elk in 2020. Can't wait to get up there and start looking for bulls! Luckily, I retired a year ago and so now I have time to hunt the whole season...

    Archery/Muzzy elk on the Bosque Del Oso

    If you are considering applying for an early season elk tag on the Bosque, you should read this first. I decided to post this warning to archery and muzzy elk hunters because I have talked to some very disappointed guys hunting the Bosque Del Oso in the past few years. I have hunted the Bosque 4...

    Bad news if you liked the reissue process

    I just read in the Turkey brochure that the reissue process is changing in 2021. I believe it's safe to assume this change will also be in effect next fall.... Bad news for those of us who like the current process. Looks like they are going back to the old way of posting a list of reissue tags...

    Unit 17 bighorn sheep

    If anyone is still looking for a bighorn sheep in unit 17, send me a PM. I saw some dandys last weekend while antelope hunting. I was shocked to see them in the low country like that but there were 6 rams together and one was an absolute brute! Hoopscoach

    Ethical dilemma

    I need some help from my community of hunters out there. I have a friend who I encouraged to get into hunting because they love eating game meat and were very excited about filling their freezer. I helped them draw a ranching for wildlife cow tag and they also have a slam dunk doe tag for CO...

    Caribou, Oryx, Elk, Deer or Antelope

    I’m retiring in June and plan to do as much hunting in the next few years as humanly possible! I have done a few hunt swaps with good results and will now have enough time to be a more available host and a more flexible guest! Here are the hunt options I have to offer: Alaska Caribou (archery)...

    Unit 11 antelope

    I was one of the lucky bastards to snag a unit 11 buck tag from the reissue list today. With my nephews weekend antelope hunt and work committments, I won't make it to unit 11 until probably Wednesday. Looks like the unit is full of BLM land and I can't imagine it will be hard to find goats but...

    Anyone get a CC hit for Bear?

    The recaps say there were 2 of us at my point total and only one of us drew so I'm literally 50/50. I'm really hoping to draw as this is a good year for that tag but no CC hit so far... "Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud"

    AK archery caribou for ???

    I'm going to put this out there to see how much interest there would be for swapping an Alaska caribou hunt in 2018? I've been hunting caribou (DIY) in Alaska for 7 years and have learned how it can be done very reasonably! This hunt is best done in August and i recommend you partner up with a...

    Unit 44 second season deer suggestions

    My nephew picked up a second season unit 44 deer tag off the reissue list last week and I wondered if anyone had some advice for us. He's 15, never killed a mule deer buck and is not going to be picky at all! I would guess the first branch antlered deer that gives us a shot will be in trouble:)...

    If you are planning to hunt AK in 2017... read this before January 1st

    Most already know this but I will post it here anyway! Tag prices for AK are going to double in 2017 but you can still purchase your 2017 tags at the old prices up until Dec. 31st. If you are thinking of hunting AK in 2017, you can save yourself several hundred dollars by committing now and...

    Late season cow in 61

    Hi guys, My 14 year old nephew has a cow tag for the late season in unit 61. I've hunted 61 but during early season but never this late in the year. I assume there is enough snow on the mountain by now and that the elk have moved to lower elevations. Can anyone recommend some areas that might...

    2015 Dalton highway caribou hunt

    2015 AK caribou hunt It's been said that when you hunt caribou on the Dalton highway, it's either feast or famine. In 2014 we experienced famine conditions for 6 solid days and only by pure luck were able to fill 2 out of 3 tags on the last day of our hunt. However, this year we enjoyed an...

    Anyone used Knight Canyon packout service in unit 61?

    I spoke with Bill on the phone and he seems like a great guy to work with and they don't appear to be too busy guiding hunters to be available. Their prices are very reasonable and I'm pretty sure he said they could pack out game anywhere in unit 61. I liked Austin but he can only go so far...

    Anyone with beetles in CO

    Alaska Caribou: I usually hunt solo on the Alaskan haul road but this year I was joined by my good friend Ron from Alabama.

    WY general elk for AK caribou

    I am looking for some WY general elk tag help. I will be in Alaska from late May to mid August so I'm not able to do much scouting for my WY general elk tag.

    Question for the WY experts!

    I should know the answer to this but I'm still figuring things out in WY and am not sure where to look. Can a non resident do a drop camp in a wilderness area with an outfitter or does it have to be a fully guided hunt? Thanks in advance. Hoopscoach "Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud"
