Anybody else get drawn? Since they cut non resident tags back to ten percent, the draw is
almost impossible. Havent got drawn in 5 straight yrs.

Took about 10 tries because everything kept crashing.

All of the anticipation plus the "top secret backdoor" thread had my hopes high.

But......Unsuccessful.

My son and I were drawn for Unit 50 2nd archery. I let him know we won the lottery as I was dropping him off for school. I don’t think he believed me. I’m sure he’s going to have a hard time focusing today!

January archery (rut) deer tags got cut significantly across the board. The unit we always like to hunt now only offers, at best, 6 non resident tags for the January rut hunt, making it virtually impossible for a group to get drawn. Not interested in chasing deer in the heat of September. Just glad we got to go several times over the years. Didn't even put in for the draw this year for the first time in 9 years. Wish non-residents could get back to receiving 15-20% of the tag allotment. Good luck to all of you who drew a tag this year, hope you all kill something!

I was successful on my 2nd choice. First Archery. Rugged Unit with elk, not huge quantities but some good bulls. Going to be a rugged hard hunt. Will have to find water. I am pumped. I will need to try find another hunter somewhere to try to hook up with the next few months.

I didn’t draw but the crew I hunt with in New Mexico did pretty good. Lol. 3 elk tags, 3 deer tags, and an ibex tag to fill. I’ll purchase an OTC Barbary tag also. We’ll be pretty busy this fall and winter.
