What big game tags have you secured this year? What type of weapon do you hope to use?
Here at DPG we are hoping for several tags.
CO Elk- 338LMAI, 7STW
WY Deer-6.5x47 Lapua

Re: 2013 Big Game Hunts

This was a rough year for me, only drew an elk tag for Colorado with my 2nd choice. They dropped the number of antelope tags by a ton in the areas I hunt, so I missed my tag there. Hopefully all of these preference points will go to good use in the next year or two!

Just an FYI for anyone who is hunting Colorado, all tags are now posted in the 'Draw Results/Preference Points' section. Good luck to all!

Edit: I will be using my 300 RUM for the elk hunt.

New Mexico Mule Deer hunt on private land (14,000 acres) in the Gila Mountains. I think I'm going to take my Tikka T3 lite 270wsm and 150gr bergers. So far I've been able to hit steel out to 800 yards.

New Mexico for both Elk and Mule Deer with my buddy. I'm very excited and going to pickup my 300RUM from the smith today!

NM Mule Deer (apparently you have to be from out of state to draw a NM Elk tag). Probably use my 6mm Remington.

Re: 2013 Big Game Hunts

Well I struck out for special deer and elk permits in Montana so it's back to scouting a few new areas and keeping my eye on proven ones. Its nice to find fur targets for those 300 grain bergers right now my wall would have a lot of rocks hanging on it this spring as time hasn't allowed for chasing many bears.
