    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...

    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...

    Draw Results Date

    Does anyone know the chance of getting the Colorado elk draw results by June 1st? I just did points last year, but I recall reading some threads on CDOW website issues last year. I saw Toprut listed June 3rd as the post date, but thought in previous years results posted in late May. I am...

    Unit 87 Deer

    So I ended up drawing my unit 87 deer tag and got my maps. I lined up a trip with my wife to visit family in Colorado & Nevada as an excuse to scout and hunt the archery opener for perhaps a week. Then plan to return for the late October rifle season. Curious if anyone has drawn this tag in...

    Max Deer Points 87 or 102

    I'm done waiting and ready to hunt so I really want to burn my WY max deer points this year. Haven't drawn anything anywhere else as well. I've narrowed my deer choice down to either 87 or 102. Wanted to get thoughts on this. Big factor is my wife will accompany me. Her first time on any hunt...

    102 Deer

    Anyone know if the deer quality has nudged up any in 101/102 lately? I saw this is the 3rd year since they lowered the quota. I got max points and the only options I see are to burn my points there or split them with a buddy for Region G. But I'm concerned if my body will hold up in G any...

    ORDFW Login Problem

    Anyone else having trouble logging in to their ORDFW profile page? I've been trying for 3 days, trying 4 browsers via 2 different computers, and all I get is a "Captcha Error" whatever that is. Emailed ORDFW and got no explanation, just said try another browser. Google Chrome works best OK...

    Hunting Partner for Montana Leftover General Unit

    Looking for a hunting partner to do a Montana archery elk hunt with general leftover tags. 300+ points yet drew nothing in 8 states. Been a long while since I hunted OTC, but can't stand missing another September in the Rockies. Solo backpacked previously, but getting older now (55), with some...

    Maine's Outfitter Welfare

    Why am I not surprised? Yet again special interest groups line the pocket of a legislator to abandon the public trust. This time it's Maine's Troy Jackson. Want to know...

    Maine & NH Moose in Huntin Fool

    Just got my latest issue of HF and I see Maine & Hew Hampshire moose made their debuts as anticipated. But for anyone who thinks their draw odds are accurate, think again. When I drew NH in 2012 I calculated my odds at ~1%, and that was figured taking into account my 8 points. Now HF posts it's...

    I think it's about the time I got the most cash shipped out. Anyone else figure what will be refunded earliest pending no luck? WY bison, CO sheep, NM elk, CO elk/deer/lope..........? I think over $6K out this year.

    Plantar Fasciitis -

    The gift that keeps on giving. Maybe due to my age of 53, but this crap will just not go away. This is my 7th month of pain. My workout regiment has ground to a halt for the first time since my teens. I can't do a dam thing. Had this a few times years ago but heel inserts got rid of it...

    Unit 12 Late Deer Options

    My buddy and I are one point below max for AZ deer and seriously considering burning points this year, as we have drawn only one other tag for a Sept elk hunt. Dates seem a little later than typical? Curious to get some thoughts. We are thinking of maybe 12B. Anyone been on any of the 12...
