    Well without saying exact spots, I'm in for a bear preference point (because some day...), an elk point plus a cow tag in the Western Slopes, a deer point plus a 2nd season deer tag, and an antelope tag using my 2 points there and hoping for a good draw.

    The one I'm crossing my fingers for is that pronghorn. My daughter turns 10 in August, still a year too young to hunt on her own tag but I took her out for a "father/daughter" elk trip last year and she had a blast. We saw a bunch of doe in easy range - if only we had the right tag. I knew she was hooked when she begged to come on another trip before we even got home! If we have another good trip, we'll get her hunter-ed course done and she'll be ready for her own tag in 2020. Can't wait...

    It is all up in the air for me. I am helping my brother in law on a hunt in unit 21. He has enough points for second season to guarantee a tag but would have to wait another dozen years for a better tag. And with him being 75 he isn't getting any younger.

    My deer hunt is questionable. I usually put in for a ML tag but we also have enough points to draw a better than average antelope tag in Wyoming so I don't want to screw up that tag.

    So in the end I'll more than likely put in for points for deer, and antelope, and go for a late season cow elk tag. The only thing that might screw that up is if I draw my bison tag over in Utah.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    I hope you get that bison tag! I can't wait to get a bison tag one day!

    Elk, deer, pronghorn points. Also asked for the leftover list in case something good fits my schedule.

    Will be applying for my 26th Non Resident Elk preference point. Hoping in a couple of years to have enough points to draw a muzzleloader tag in one of the northwest units.
    I do like the new system where they don't hold on to your money for months just for applying for a pref point, but I cringe at having to pay about $50 to buy a point each year now.

    Still in limbo...

    I still have a few days to unwind it.

    It looks like I'm all in for this year. I booked a 1 on I guided elk hunt (MZL season), and decided to pick up a deer tag (elk-9+ pts, deer-0 pts.). I will have a fishing lic. with the elk tag and need to get the small game lic. to apply this year. So, to use them all will hike into an area chain of lakes and do some bird hunting, fishing, and acclimating before the big hunt. My inclination is to give it a full week, and may even resurrect my early trips by not bringing any food along.
