I try to go on an out of state hunt every year. Last year was muley and pronghorn,wyoming. Year before was Colorado archery elk OTC with my grown kids. Before that was prongs with the kids in Wyoming. Before that Wyoming rifle elk and OTC elk in Colorado. I have the most fun when the kids can go but it's pretty hard for kids to get enough time off in todays work society and with their own family pressures. We have just as big a time getting leftover and OTC tags and it does make it easier to schedule hunts. This year I was fortunate to draw a general elk in Wyoming, second choice, and a cow tag. Am still trying to figure out if I should put in for a prong or just buy leftovers and hope the kids can come along for a long weekend. Decisions ,decisions! Anyways lots of options. Good luck to you in whatever you come up with.
