General Buck.

That only cost me 10 points. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! 😅

No LE Bull Elk..... again.

Just wondering... does anybody offer special hunts for hunters using walkers and on oxygen bottles? I might be looking for one by the time I ever manage to get that tag. A mere 18 points just doesn’t go as far as it used to. 😵😵‍💫🤣

Drew a LE deer tag with 0 points. Also drew a youth any bull tag so that’s gonna be interesting since I have no idea what I’m doing with that. Might just have to turn it back in…
There is so little opportunity to draw the youth anybull tag. It's for youth 12-18 so only 6 chances and it's an OIL tag for the kid. Go and have a good time on the mountain with your kid. If you dont get an animal like when I went with my son, you'll still have added time with your kid doing something you'll love and talk about for a lifetime

Two pending charges for $40 here. They didn't show up 'til late last evening. Two $40 charges for my friend so he and I and two of the 6 sons between us will be hunting together. It's been a few years since the drawings have put us together on the mountain at the same time. I looking forward to it.

Incidentally, my neighbor got hit for two $40 and one $285. So either his 14 year old with no points is hunting the Manti or he is hunting the Manti with 3 points. Lucky. He took a 370 bull down there 8 years ago.

Drew dedicated hunter on Pine Valley. Does anyone on this thread know how many tags were cut from the unit this year? I was hoping my son would have drawn a LE Pauns permit with 17pts but nothing yet.

I need to apologize for some fake news. In my excitement I pulled up last year's email of my draws. It's actually Central Mountain Nebo I drew. Still excited but not quite San Juan 🙃.

Congrats to those that drew so far!
No need to apologize, the only thing hurt was the dream you had that you drew the San Juan. Hope you have a great hunt a get a Pisser!!!!!

I would keep that youth bull tag. Them are some of the best and funniest hunts I have been on. Great times with your kids and a lot of learning that comes with them hunts, successful or not. Always some great memories made on them.

I'm still waiting too.
Waiting for the $513 charge so I could attempt what my bud Bigwiffy accomplished last year. I'm afraid it's not coming however! :mad:

That archery only Yuba Lake South Samsquanch hunt is a fun tag! Hope you draw it!

About 13 hours after first hits, at 1228 am, a reputable card (venture - Capital One?) first sent alert of the hit.

Assuming that phone was on, full time.

They might be really stringing this out on the merchant side.

That’s the one I’m after!

I’m assuming it took just a couple more points than I had but since they had such a low success rate last year, I thought guys would bail out on the unit! I guess not.
I’ll reach out for help if I ever get lucky!

114 unsuccessful applications in a row for my brother in Utah. My youngest daughter was not born when he started applying and she may graduate college before he draws a tag. It is not even frustrating - only comical at this point. He is applying for archery tags in the mid tier units. Congrats to those who drew.

How many points does he have? Resident or Non-Resident?

That is crazy bad luck if a Resident - and would like to see his strategy and what units he is applying for.

Still weirded stuff going on. My daughter has a pending charge but no email, and my son has a successful email but no pending charge. Don't break faith yet!

They Will Change it before Your Hunt Starts!:D

You Want Me To Push The Other Way For The Change Now?
Do what you gotta do bess. But they ain't changing anything this year. I still support chages to have them go back to the way the rule used to read.

Naww, I'm good

I've killed a buck with a hawkens, I don't care to do it again. In fact it's my only muzzloader kill.

And I hope you don't think me sharing with you all my hunts is me trying to show off how good a hunter I am.

Fillmore ML deer tag!! Elkassassin-I need your blessing to use the new LR, scoped ML I bought a few months ago?? I have never used a scoped ML before and this might very well be my first and last. Then I can donate it to the Smithsonian with David's slingshot. DEAL??

Funny as the only deer I ever took with a ML was with a Hawkens as well. EA just might be onto something here! My shot with a Hawkens was only 24 yards!! I am pretty sure I broke the world record for missed shots last year in Colorado ML hunting. For whatever reason though, I keep coming back for more.

I found my Dear John email in the spam folder. Somehow my email account was sparing me another year of rejection. So if you’re not seeing the email check your spams.

What does "WITHDRAWN" mean on my email? I'm guessing it was the first app I withdrew then resubmitted. Farther down the email it says unsuccessful for general buck.
I had 1 point and had west desert, west as 3rd choice. There's no mathematical way I couldn't have drawn (unless people are desperate and there's more apps but that ain't it). UDWR is absolute garbage compared to NV. I'm done. I'll stick to Idaho I guess.

If it was your 3rd choice your point has no value. The only way you could have drawn is if there we're leftover tags for that unit. Looking at the draw odds from last year there was no leftover tags for that unit even for archery. And yes people are that desperate there are almost no tags leftover after the draw now. Also pretty sure they cut a bunch of tags on the west desert units so there was even less chance of there being leftover tags.

By all means stay in Nevada and Idaho, it's funny watching people complain about stuff and then threaten to stop putting in when you know damn well they won't.

Advice, if your gonna play the system make sure you understand it.

ended up drawing the muzzleloader hunt for cache - has an early 100 percent draw rate for non resident so not sure why I was surprised. Guess i need to buy a muzzleloader!

I like how the "Preference Point" emails say that you "Earned" a point.

How did I earn it? By giving you money for it?? That's called straight up buying. 🤪😅

They consider everyone's first choice before moving on to second, third etc. There is no mathematical way you could have drawn based on history. It's not like you were shut out of anything but an expensive trip to see very few if any deer.
