    I don't know how you guys with points do it! Im glad Im picking easy units and don't really have much invested in case I don't draw. I guess its a lot more exciting when you hit the jackpot though!

    ***That's exactly right IMO too. I should have just got a G tag a couple years ago and rented a horse and tack like I did a couple times up north back in the late 90s before this crappy PP system got started. Now with 5PPs I hate to waste a couple on G, but the one unit I have in mind just keeps creeping up a good 1/2 PP or better each year the last several years and now I'm in that trap we're talking about. I may just wait until 2015 when my best buddy out there retires and talk him into going into G with horses on a DIY for a week or more to try and get it done. Time will tell, but these residents that want a PP system are going to be in for a big surprise after about five years when they're stuck just like we are on that great unit they were going to draw when it's not working out for them.

    A big part of the problem the last few years is tag numbers have been cut so much in some units. If there werent alot less tags I dont think point creep would be near as bad. Im going to wait another year or 2 and see what happens. Most states I am building points in I have a good idea where I want to head with them but Wy deer I really got nothing yet. I have plenty of options for places to hunt leftover or otc so Im not real worried about it yet.

    That was the major thing that bit me last year. I partied with another guy who had max PPs and needed help on a good deer hunt because of his physical disability and we would have draw our tags if they hadn't cut 25 tags from the previous years numbers. I figured we were a shoein and then when I saw the final regs come out with thentag cut I sent him a PM and told him not to buy a plane ticket because we were on thin ice. All the tags went and ours was the next small pool of people and we would have drawn had those 25 tags still been there.

    The tag cuts got me on a 2nd choice deer tag last year too that I thought was a slam dunk. Atleast I got the antelope tag 2nd choice and got to hunt so it worked out fine. Points have gone up a bunch in some antelope units with the tag cuts too. Hopefully it improves in the next couple years or my WY antelope plan will be changing too.

    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.
    I agree, I think I'll just apply for another point and hope it gets better but then again it could get worse.

    The only reason I am building points for deer is because I am not sure where I really want to hunt. Right now I am learning region Y, I hunted C a couple times but its nearly impossible to draw it 2nd choice and the public land is very limited.
