How is everyone’s hunting season lining up? Anyone get any interesting tags?

I have a Dall sheep hunt end of August and moose in the middle of September.

Good luck everyone!

Got a Colorado 1st Rifle Elk tag in the mail this week, first tag I've ever drawn in my life. Absolutely can't wait. After that it will be whitetail archery and rifle here in Alabama. Hopefully in 3-5 years I'll work up to two "destination" hunts a year. For now its just one, and we are focusing on elk.

Picked up a Colorado Archery Mule Deer tag that'll get paired with an OTC archery bull tag. Hunting units 77, 771 mainly. Lots of low altitude Mulies, but I've always wanted one from the high country. :D

Collecting Colorado Elk points, aiming for unit 1 or 2... it'll be a while yet.

Did not draw Elk or Antelope in New Mexico. Two years in a row now.

Next year I'm aiming for at least a 4 state draw across 3-4 species per state. Probably AZ, NM, CO, and WY.

I was spoiled with a Black Bear hunt in Idaho a few years back. Would entertain going back for both Black Bear and Elk.

Congrats, tags in the mail= always a good felling.

Cool, sounds like a good trip.

Pulled two antelope doe tags in unit 26 in the main draw and another doe tag in the second draw in unit 109. I'm hoping to also draw a swan tag for our waterfowl hunt in ND this fall as well.

Decent year for me I suppose. Drew a 2nd choice mule deer tag in my home state of Oregon. Same unit I hunted last year, not great for bigger bucks but should be able to fill my tag and who knows maybe a big buck will appear:)

Also, drew a buck antelope tag in Wyoming in the unit I usually hunt and then 2 doe antelope tags in the leftover draw for another unit so should be fun.
Good luck to all this year - be sure to post pics of your hunts!!

I didn’t draw anything for Montana or Washington, looks like only general tags for me in Washington. But I do have guided moose hunt in northern BC coming October 4-16th. Pretty excited for that.

My 16yo daughter and I have NM pronghorn tags.
My older daughter has an AZ cow elk tag.
My 16yo daughter has a premium AZ mule deer tag.
Sounds like your about to fill a freezer, nice hunts, I am sure you will enjoy those hunts with your kids. Good luck.
My 8 year old is hitting the mountains with me for my Dall sheep hunt. He is so excited he can barely sleep.

Multi season and second deer tags in Wa.
Drew a rifle bull hunt in MT unit 270
Can’t wait to get back and find some bulls in Montana
Is that easy or west Montana? I used to hunt the Bitterroots of Idaho not too far from the Montana border, really nice region. Good luck.

Got a tag for a mule deer hunt in Idaho this October. First time going deer hunting since I was a kid, can't wait!
Good job getting back after it. I haven’t hunted Idaho for over a decade, I really like the Bitterroots. Good luck.
