Re: Wyoming Elk Draw Results
Unfortunately sometimes we gotta make compromises in order to hunt and put some good memories behind us while we are still young. My favorite area is unit 9 in AZ. I drew an archery tag years ago, then after many more I drew a cow tag just to hunt in the unit. I picked up sheds that would make you weep openly! Talk about extortion, you have to have a non-refundable $140. hunting license just to put in to the draw! At 50 if I keep trying AZ I'll go broke and never hunt 9 with a rifle.
When I lived in AZ I used to hunt mulies in the Kaibab and think nothing of it. Now I live in NYC (I know, I know, don't say it!) and I'd give my right arm to go back but I don't have the patience (and years left) to collect the 15 points.
But in only my first try with 1 point and the special, I'll be hunting elk in western WY with Rob Wiley of Non-Typical Outfitters and I'm sure it will be lots of fun. I may not shoot a 400 class bull but at least I'll be in the game. And with 2 mulie points Rob and I will be chasing trophy mulies in 2010.
It's like with the chicks........I've never had a 10 but I've had five 2s!
