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.
