    The results have been out for quite a while but I haven't seen anything other than Norsepeaks' thread about his fiance drawing 2 great tags.

    Did anybody in Wa. draw anything?

    My wife and I both drew any buck permits for the Cowiche area. It's an any buck permit and starts after regular elk season. It wasn't our first choice but it still gives us some additional hunting time.

    Big fat goose egg here. That's four years running.
    I did find $50 on the floor at Home Depot recently, that's about as lucky as I've got lately.
    Nice draw on your deer tags, just before the rut, that should guarantee some meat in the freezer. Congrats!

    No tags here. My wife and I together have 16 deer points and still didn't get drawn. We put in together for a couple different late season hunts around Wenatchee. Guess I should have slipped a little extra donation in.:D

    May have to just go spot for Dick instead.

    I only had about 4 points for deer and my wife had 0, none, nada, zip.

    And yet the game department says the preference points are to help you and give you a better chance. Yah right.:rolleyes:

    A few years back my hunting buddy and I had no elk points at the time and yet we both drew special permits.

    I may be willing to trade the spotting offer for some packing though.:rolleyes:

    That's 3 years out of 5 drawing a cow tag for me. What, isn't everybody else doing the same?! :)

    What unit did you draw for?

    And by the way, congratulations on drawing. There's not any better meat than a cow elk.;)

    We would probably be in for the packing part. I think it is just luck of the draw. Preference points don't seem to help.
