Crappy year...

Draw results for the 2012 season here in wyoming and I drew almost nothing. My same old late season whitetail tag which was good until I realized they changed it and my honey holes are no longer included in the tag. I also drew an early season cow elk tag, nothing too great, so looks Like instead of looking for the giant buck or bull I will be looking for that ultimate shot.

Re: Crappy year...

You're getting to be quite the junkie! I've got a picture from National Geographic showing a crocodile/alligator in the Bighorn Basin Wyoming. I'm labeling it the only thing Mike didn't kill in Wyoming in the last year. Of course that was from before global warming cut their numbers. Maybe USFWS will make that their next transplant, and you'll get a crack at one yet.
We're batting zero here as well. A doe tag is it so far. I screwed up my Oregon stuff so not even getting points there. Wyoming, Utah and Nevada points only this year. Getting a friend through hunter ed, and helping him fill his youth tag will be the high point. They did extend our cat season making it more feasible to call one. There are a couple of spots I've been wanting to try for a few years. Calling a bear remains on my bucket list.
Any OTC, rut or late whitetail you know of in Wy?

Re: Crappy year...

I've looked, not hard, and haven't found one. Always looking at something to get out of our jungles. We have good whitetail, but no general season rut hunts. They have added some draws that look good but pretty stiff odds usually. Probably track the ATV, and get more predator oriented.

Re: Crappy year...

I drew my Oregon Deer tag for the first time in 8 FREAKIN' YEARS!!
So I'm stoaked!
But with being the new guy, working for a Central Oregon POWERHOUSE construction company, I figured id better buy points for Elk, Spring Bear, Antelope, & Antlerless Deer. I don't have enough seniority or $ to waste points on any other draws & not be able to go. I'll just go General season Bear, & Elk whenever I can get away with it.
This is the first tag of any kind I've drawn since my Elk tag in 08'!! That ended horribly! No Elk, (didn't even see one till after the season) then to top it off, I got out of the woods & back into radio reception in time to here the disastrous election results Now that was a BAD Elk season!
Aside from that, I'm so sick & tired of Oregon Department of Wildlife jacking me around that ill likely hunt out of state from now on once my points run out. It's just not worth the ever increasing prices for less quality game, & less odds of actually filling the freezer IF your lucky enough to draw. I'll go general season still if its convienient, but I'm taking my $ elsewhere for the draws etc. Idaho, Montana, & maybe even Wyoming

Oh well. At least I drew 1 tag this year, plus General Season Bear is usually pretty good to me. I gotta try and stay positive.

Harper,
Where are you in Wa. st.?

Man! I don't know what to tell you. Almost nothing? With a cow elk tag and a
white tail's? LOL maybe I need to move to Wyoming.

After 11 years in a row and before that for about 10 years off and on, I finally got a
Bull Elk tag in Nevada. I'm all excited and thankful to the Lord for that.

Good luck on you hunts and try to enjoy them as much as possible.
