I’m wanting to hunt the dunes for elk but with point creep do you think with 12 points I will ever get the chance to hunt there?

Maybe in 30ish years. If you just want to hunt there and don't care about what elk tag you have in your pocket, once you burn your points go with a type 2 or put in for a cow tag. At least you'd still get to experience elk hunting there.
Good luck on whatever you decide!

If nobody drop out, you are looking at over 50 years. Assuming a decent amount of people pass, quit applying, settle for something else, etc- your best case scenario (other than hitting the random lottery at some point) is about 25 years. There are other open terrain hunts where you can shoot a good bull that you could draw sooner.

Thanks everyone for your help and input.

I am thinking now of burning my points for next year and go with a outfitter in unit 61, Shoshone Lodge Outfitters.

I have sent a email to them looking for some details. Waiting on their reply.

Do any of you have personal experiences with this outfitter?
