    1st or 2nd Antelope Season

    Well the pronghorn will be first, late August. With a month between the deer.

    1st or 2nd Antelope Season

    We'll see. Normally I don't check web forums or F&G sites for draw results posting often. This time is different. But it seems ODFW picked this year to change their posting policy to more like Wyoming, waiting until exact advertised date.

    1st or 2nd Antelope Season

    No luck in the Wyoming draw, so for me it all comes down to Oregon. Waiting impatiently.

    Maine Moose Draw Online

    Just wish they'd lose the bonus point peddling & outfitter welfare. Or at least publish how many point packs they sold. ........Can't even calculate accurate odds. No tag for me.

    Maine Moose Draw Online

    Anyone else watching this online moose draw Saturday? How many convoluted points do you have? They claim I have 100 total by adding the formula values each year. Probably gives me a 2-3% chance. Been wanting to attend one of these with friends for years but too far away. This may be the...

    My letter to ODFW.

    Was foolish enough to buy into the Oregon system as a NR years ago in the hopes of a Big 3 elk hunt. That finally happened last year after a 22 year wait. This year I am making a major play to burn both my deer & lope points in an effort to exit their system permanently. Very little...

    1st or 2nd Antelope Season

    Seed numbers came out pretty good for both my pronghorn & deer applications, should I have any competition. There was only one other NR in my point pool between both hunts last year so looks good. I applied in same unit for both, Warner.

    1st or 2nd Antelope Season

    For now that's what I put on my app because I have not drawn anything this year and I want to go somewhere. I got until Sunday to change if I want.

    1st or 2nd Antelope Season

    A guide I talked to said the archery season pressure already educated many of the mature bucks to lay low by the 1st rifle. And that it took the rut to drag them back out. Another factor for me is if no point savers jumped in, I should have a 100% chance for the 2nd season tag, and only a 50%...

    1st or 2nd Antelope Season

    Wanted to get opinions on picking between a first season pronghorn hunt or a rut hunt. I have a pile of pronghorn points in Oregon I will try to burn this year. These were accumulated as a residual of getting in their game decades ago for a Big 3 elk tag. I was finally able to draw that hunt...

    2020 goals/desires

    My goal is to stop any more wheels from falling off my now 60 year old body. As soon as I heal one part, another one breaks. The latest is what appears to be a torn rotator cuff. I am currently afraid to pull my bow to see what happens. It’s that bad. Can’t sleep on my left side. Great I got...

    Unit 45 Elk- first rifle

    Had a friend do that same hunt when you were there. He did a drop camp with similar results. I’ve only done the early archery in 45, back when NR’s could draw. Last time that happened was 2011. I would not do that rifle late hunt up in that high country. I hope to return some day.
