I have a few points for deer and elk in OR because I bought them when applying for sheep there. It's not very likely that I will draw (obviously). I am building points for mule deer/rocky mountain elk in other states. So my question is it worth it for some limited draw opportunities for Blacktails and Roosevelt Elk? I know most hunts are OTC for these but LE hunts seem to have much higher success rates and usually better dates.

$170 or so isn't a ton of money but I would feel better if I had a plan to actually hunt there someday, instead it feels more like throwing money at a lottery that will never pay off. I want to hunt both species someday. WA doesn't seem like a good option, and CA elk is impossible. So OR seems like the best option.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
