Being from MO we're not quite up on the points preference system or the zones.
Are there any OTC tags for muleys or antelopes? I assume if there is it's for certain areas. Whats the chances of drawing a tag your first year? Is there a buddy system (one draws the other does too)? What area's would you recommend. Can I still buy preference points for next year?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
You have until the 30th to buy a point, I would for sure get one for whatever you wish to hunt. Their are no OTC that I know of, just leftover tags. You had better be on the ball to get one of those, they go in seconds! You can draw a tag your first year, but this will most likely be either a less desired area or the special draw. The special side of the draw is for guys that are willing to pay extra to get a tag, its very pricey. So its wait and build points or pay to play. Their are units you can go with one point for deer and lope, but its gona be tough to do both. We did it last year and had a ball, but it just about killed us. I would recommend picking one animal! Points are rounded if you apply together.
