    Resident advice for nonresident with 8pp

    So I have 8 preference points going into this application for antelope. For years I?ve been holding out for unit 67, but with point creep, I doubt I?d pull that tag this year which means another year of waiting. I?m getting the itch to go hunt a goat and was wondering about thought on cashing in the points for unit 83? Pros and cons of each? What would you do in this situation?

    83 is a good unit. I work that area some, personally with that many points I'd look at the areas 60-75. Think there's better choices in most of those hunt areas.

    I would pick an area under the radar. Lots of great antelope areas that don't get hyped.

    All Joking aside, could you draw 92? It looks pretty good on paper. Might have to draw it on a special draw. Not sure what it drew out at this year.

    Any unit requiring 6-8 points is going to yield a great hunt with plenty of access. I typically hunt units that a NR can draw with 2-3 points and have a great time. Make a list of units that required 6-8 points in 2018 and ask yourself what you want out of the hunt. Do you want to hunt upland birds and small game too? Do you want to do some Fishing? Do you want to stay in a certain town or park? Then pick the unit that gives you the most of what you want. I don't think there will be much difference in access or trophy quality in the units on such a list. For elk and deer, some units stand head and shoulders above the rest. This is not true of antelope, in my experience.
