Huh...bummer...haven't heard of too many folks drawing special tags this year. I wonder how the WDFW coffers are doing? I put in for 7 (ouch $ more than usual) and got one master hunter elk tag for the peshastin area, which is a total crapshoot in terms of the hunt even happening let alone me be available during the timeframe they might want someone to come over to deal with some problem elk. I don't like hunting elk that way (designated wilderness backpacking hunt is my style), but it's a second or third chance to fill the freezer if I can't produce during the regular season. A bit dissapointed with 7 apps and nothing of any consequence really, but that's the way it goes!

Hey, BTW, might seem like a silly question, but what powder funnel are you using on the 7mmAM? I'm guessing its the same shoulder configuration or close to my 338AX and I already drilled out my old RCBS powder funnel with a 9/16 bit to fit on the case, but the wall was then so thin that it's cracking and won't last much longer...

    Sounds like you put in for about the same amount of permits as I did. Even if they do build up their "coffers", they'll figure some way to blow it on something besides game management.

    I know what it was like when my dad hunted and I know what it was like when I was young. Unfortunately, I now know what it's like today and it's not something to brag about.

    I use Satern funnels for all of my reloading. They're the best I've found.

    I always go home with a smile on my face after a day of shooting. It's the best therapy there is.

    Roy, I meant to get this posted earlier so you'd be able to get some sleep after seeing the original groups. This is what it usually does so I don't get too excited when I steer it a little crooked some times.
