    As soon as checks and form are received by the outfitter you are confirmed.

    I would like to try to get regestered into the hunt for 2013 for myself and my hunting buddy. Perfectly willing to send a down payment imediately if we still have a chance at getting in. I see we will need to purchase a preference point by Sept 30th. That's no problem. Is there still time to register or are you alreay filled up?

    Please state clearly your intentions to immediately send in your form and check.

    that is correct, by myself so I can pair up with anyone, I have shot a lot of game at 300-500 yards but in hunting rifles, heavy sporters. I am having a 7mm mag built in a long range platform so this will be great for me to learn. I hunt horseback at leaset once a year and will work hard at camp chores or anything needed.
    Will be in WY next week for goats and mule deer, so for my first WY elk this will be great.
