If it is general rifle odd are it was for your first choice, very few make it to the second round.

Archery it could be any of your choices, muzzle loader is about the same as general rifle.

I have such bad luck at the draw, I can’t even get my rejection letter yet.
Firearrow I feel your pain man. I am a resident of Utah and was pretty surprised to not draw my Antelope tag with five preference points. At least I did draw my general archery deer tag. Hope your able to get an OTC tag or something so you can get some hunting in this fall.

I got it today. Nada. But I “should” draw a unit 21 deer tag in CO, and I will be going to WY on a antelope hunt with my middle son. He turns 12 this year and will be behind the trigger finally. I’m really looking forward to that hunt.

But there is still hope for NV, MT, ID, and here in CA. But I’m not holding my breath.

I might be getting with you on the unit 21 info.

My brother in law put in for second season there and should have enough points to draw so we'll see. I'll be the guide on the hunt. All I have ever done in that unit is hunt rabbits in January. I have some pretty good info from a friend that hunted it last year also so we might need to compare notes.

That would be much appreciated. I’ve been looking at GE a lot and each time I get more excited. I have 9 points and I think it usually takes about 6 to draw. It sounds like this should be a fun hunt. Looking over deer until you find one you like. I’m not a trophy hunter, and to be honest it will be hard for me to not shoot the first buck I see. I hope to get there a few days early to scout. I hope that calms my urge to shoot the first buck.

Don't feel lonely, Utah doesn't want any of my non resident money.

If it wasn't for my lifetime license that I purchased way back in 1987 I wouldn't have a deer tag. But depending on what I draw in Wyoming I may not even hunt Utah for the first time in over 50 years.

That's cool, The pics of your wife's hunt were great. Can't wait to read the story and see pics. I have 19 points after this year. I sure hope I get a chance to experience that hunt before I'm to old!
Hope you have a great hunt!
