    Todd from ND called me just now for the 2nd time. His wife said: "Yes, honey, I love you so much that I wouldn't think of not letting you go on this fabulous hunt!" :)

    Actually, I don't know exactly what she said but Todd says it was some form of "yes" and he's in.

    I have spoken with the owners at non-typical and I believe I'm going to be in on this as well. I sent you an email Len. My only issue is that I won't know for sure if I can get those weeks for vacation until about mid Oct. I suppose I will go ahead and send my deposit, and If for some reason I cant get those weeks then perhaps someone would like to purchase my deposit. I'm going to apply for my preference point tomorrow. When is the actual drawing for the tags held. In other words when will I know for sure that I have a tag and will actually be able to go on this hunt. If I don't get drawn for this I plan to make other arrangements. I have waited years to go on an elk hunt and I decided 2014 was going to be the year. SO, I plan to hunt an elk somewhere in 2014. Hopefully it will be with you guys. My Dad will be coming along as a non hunting guest. I see this is a 2on1 guided hunt so if there is anyone else here that is planning to go and would like to partner up and work as a shooter spotter team send me a PM. I live in KY so if you are close enough perhaps we can get together and do some shooting. I have access to some pretty good shooting facilities.

    Len, we talked last week. I'd like to bring myself and 2 others. That would be for 3 hunting spots. Do you have room? Where do I send the check? Do I send you the money for the license or apply myself?

    I just got home last night. Looks like we've been busy committing.

    So do we have:

    Hornhunter32 for 1

    backyardsniper for 1 plus non-hunter guest

    huntinfool18 for 1

    Fdhoward for 3

    Len B. for 1

    I'll have to check but Robb and I may have changed this to 8 LRH hunters PLUS me. If that's correct there's room for 2 more if those above actually send in their stuff.

    So guys out there who are still on the fence, there is still room for you today.

    Send deposit and contract to outfitter. Buy point this week and tell outfitter when it is done.

    Preference point purchased, I even got one for mule deer as well. If this hunt goes good maybe I'll be back in 2015 for the deer. I have the hunt application form printed and filled out I'll have it and the deposit in the mail shortly.

    Contract and deposit for myself sent to the outfitter.
    I might have missed this but I'm assuming this is a general tag for Wyoming residents?
