    I drew a buck tag and doe tag this year for the Cascades and a cow elk tag that runs from February to March 2019.

    Will probably pick up over the counter bear and cougar tags just to help out the Oregon state employee retirement fund....

    Dang mine not that nice--- NM Antelope 3,000...ugh...but I like to hunt antelope..
    Axis/Blackbuck--free if they will stand long enough for me or the kiddos
    Whitetail deer (3 bucks and a bunch of does--MLD permit)
    Aoudad ram--usually take one ram a year--maybe just help a friend hunt there first.
    Hogs and Coyote--anytime I can happen on one.

    I didn't draw my much wanted bighorn sheep tag--11 years almost everywhere--CO,NM, WY,NV,OR,UT,AZ,MT...hopefully one day that will come true--...then I am a "stones" throw away! :) Didn't do so hot on a mule deer draw either.

    No antelope tags here. Was able to pick up a surplus cow tag in the Breaks. Did drawa trophy mule deer in the missions. Once in a lifetime. Everything else is over the counter. Just needs to start raining so we can start hunting muleys on Sept 15. If the weather doesn't break it is very possible they will shut the woods down.

    My friend from Whitefish drew a cow tag in the breaks last year. I came out to share the adventure. Great time. ZERO elk let alone "surplus cows" it had been crazy dry too and no browse=0 elk I guess. We were hunting above the CR. One guy had a bull pegged from early scouting and that was it in the entire campground. It was also 60 and windy. Gave the ride back thru Glacier new meaning for beauty with the snow on the peaks and fall color blazing around the lake. Hope the elk have wandered back for you Steve.

    Darn not looking to bad. Only drew my antlerless deer tag and buck tag, and bull moose tag this year. Next year will be better I think.

    Michigan base license, which covers a lot of small critters, and my combo deer will be it for me this year :/. It does save me a lot of money though!
