I'm guessing this hunt has fallen victim to point creap. When I got interested you could just pay for the more expensive tag and go on the hunt. The next year, you needed a point. So I started building points. I think I'm up to 3 points now and it's questionable that would draw even with the more expensive tag so I'm not even trying until I get another point. And creep will probably get me then.
My intent was to take my young son as an observer on some western hunts I used to do routinely....they used to be annual things...now I'm wondering if we can do them before he's in college.
