    I've just been buying points the last few years, but decided to throw my name in the hat for deer and lopes last night.. Special draw for both, have about a 10% shot of drawing one of the other.. Which means I will draw one, and screw up some other plans somewhere else down the line.

    Fingers crossed?!?!

    ****What makes you think that with only a 10% chance at drawing either one that you will draw one of them, or were you just joking?

    i would personally rethink 89 deer unless you can do some serious preseason scouting and have a minimum of 1 week to hunt

    Ya, and after reading all the bleak reports I am still searching for that elusive deer unit worthy of unloading max points. Ain't finding it! Time runnin out.

    ****Just joking.. Hence the screwing up other plans part.

    I'm not planning on drawing for quite some time, but I might as well let the state borrow some of my money for another 3 months, and then give it back, less my preference points. 10% chance > 0% chance

    I believe it. I have no idea where I would burn max points right now!

    On a side note I jumped into the Antelope draw for unit 75!! Driven through there a hand full of times and looked like some good country to hunt

    I'm thinking the same thing with my 5 PPs and wonder with the PP creep whether to even buy any more or chuck it as a lost cause and just keep hunting my leftover tags every year where I'm happy while I save up for one last high country guided hunt before I croak!

    Seems like right now for deer you either need max points or no points. I have 3 and sometimes I wish I didnt have any because there are regions I would like to hunt I could draw with 0 points but cant 2nd choice and dont feel they are worth the points either.
