    Yea, I can't do a 6 day hunt 30 hours from home. I scratched it. Worrying about the 8 day alternative too. I could scout for a few days prior but it's mostly a spot/stalk unit.

    Look at you Zim! Wish I could get a shot at that tag. All I've been able to draw in the VV was turkey

    Ya well that was a long time ago. No Internet apps. No HF or EJ. 22% NR quota. Odds were like 1 in 15 for archery.

    That was actually my first western hunt of any kind.

    No, I think it was 15% back then. Memory faded. It would be my 1st choice every year if I could apply there, even over the Gila.

    I put in for a different unit that only has seasons 1 and 2. 15 days for the first, 6 for the second. I put in first choice season 1 and second choice season 2.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    15/7 day maybe. Seasons are short enough, don't short yourself.

    It takes a while in most cases to get an archery kill. Last good archery elk tag I had took me 11 days to seal the deal. With that short of seasons you either need to be local with plenty of scouting time or go guided. IMHO

    I'm no expert but I like mid September best typically. That's when the rut seems like it at its peak typically. Have an awesome hunt everyone! God bless you all and may you have successful hunts.
