Who's NOT putting in, would be the better question.  Me, I'll be in with 13 points but don't expect to draw. I'm trying to decide whether to put in for one of the antlerless hunts. I think I will. Can't eat antlers.

If a guy doesn't care about antlers might as well put in for a cow tag.  I'm out but hope a bunch of you on here draw.   :chuckle:


I'll be sheep hunting this fall if I have my way.

Maine is a really long drive.
I have some local knowledge there if you need.

THANKS.  About as far as Alaska was.  Hoping gas is still in the 2.00 range by then.  I was squeezing out proverbial bricks this last year when the draw happened and it was over $4

right...it is about the same distance i guess. you might look at a bear tag while you're there...lots of them, not sure of the details though.

my stepdad was just north of there this past fall fishing atlantics and the guide was calling bulls in while they were fishing.

I'd rather catch an Atlantic than shoot a bear.

I'm applying for all three OIL tags, 10 or 11 points for sheep and 9 or 10 for goat and moose.  I'll probably put in for an antlerless moose hunt, I could really use the meat as a newlywed.  But my true heart lies in a goat tag!

Putting in for ghost numbers on OIL tags but sheep.  Everything else will require more time than I can commit right now, but I've only got 1 point for each :P

The sheep units I'm applying for are in my backyard for the most part :chuckle:

While I can see your point about the time requirement, you can usually find some time somewhere.  It may not be the hunt of your dreams, but there is lots of help on this site to make it happen.  I personally think ghost points on OIL tags is a :bdid:, unless you absolutely know you are not available, like the military.  These tags are hard enough to get drawn for, each year you are not in the drawing means you have zero chance.  You have to look at your hunting lifespan with these tags.  Yes, you might be young, but the drawing odds on these tags still are not in your favor.  Most people that put in for these tags will never be drawn, and every year that you're not in the drawing reduces your chances even more.

 :yeah:  I agree 110%. When your laying on your death bed I seriously doubt your going to be thinking "I wish I had worked one more week", but its quite possible you could be thinking "man I wish I had drawn one of those OIL tags"

 On a side note, you wont see me complain about all you ghost point guys, knock yourselves out. Thats just less competition for me and my family :IBCOOL:

I have 11 points this year I will be putting in like always. It will probably be a person who has never hunted and his/her first year putting in for moose that draws the tag. We will see :dunno:

There was a woman out there this past season that drew her first year.
