    Thank you for everyone's thoughts. I'm in for 13B rifle only this year. Probably the toughest hunting i have made in many years and I came oh so close to burning them on 12A West Late.

    Odds for sheep? For residents it runs between about 1 in 80 to 1 in 1000 depending on the tag.

    Out of 10 million possible numbers, his application number is only 9051 larger than the seed number. That is within 0.09% of the seed number on his sheep application for a tag with about 0.8% odds. ...

    A good hitch in the plan. For Oregon sheep, my son has a very good application number compared to the seed number for the sheep draw. His number is about 8 times better than he needs to draw the...

    With the shear number of 180 bucks I heard of reported on at the end of the 12AW hunt last year (terrible drought year) I have to believe those bucks will be putting on 10+" of horn which should...

    I am one step closer to pulling the trigger on Option 2

    Option 2? I think I am noticing a pattern! Ha ha.

    I truly appreciate your thoughts. When you have 20 years invested in a tag I really appreciate the thoughts of others when contemplating a...

    It will be an "either or" as far as my mule deer hunt or my wife's Coues deer hunt. My wife is happy to do either one, just so she gets to hang out with me and go to Arizona. :) We could then even...

    Honestly I am on the fence and going back and forth...ha ha. Today I am leaning to drawing the tag. Last week I was going to hold out.

    .

    That is a really good way to look at it. I've used that same reasoning in the past to jump on a tag I could draw.

    It seems to boil down to several really fun hunts versus one hunt for a...

    Thanks for the input. I know there is a 95% chance we would not have any issues.

    In my experience, when deer are just going hard horn, they start changing their patterns pretty dramatically and get much harder to hunt. If it were me, I wouldn't want to plan my hunt with that...

    I would definitely hunt BEFORE they go hard horn, which is typically around Sept 5 in areas I have been. I am sure other guys better know when this will happen there. The moon is also dark on...

    So I decided in my early 20's (the mid 1980s) that I wanted a grand slam and figured I needed to draw my bighorn and desert to pull that off. I was able to achieve that goal at 37 years old and have...
