Its more school than work.  I've put school off long enough after graduating and probably wont have the time to cut class and scout for moose or goat.  With sheep I live within 30 minutes of 2 units that I have hunted all my life, much easier for me.

Hell if I drew the tag my boss would probably cut work and come with me :chuckle:

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

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:
I drew last year, used a ghost draw in '05. Moved to Western Washington from Chewelah that year and had no time to take off of work to hunt.  :rolleyes:

Took me 20 years to finally draw the moose last year. I be now trying to get my last special species tag for Wa., sheep and also a second goat tag, I drew one in the Olympics before the point system on first try.

I only put in the Selkirk unit and 49 unit. I have 13 points but so do 1000's of other people  :bash: Would love to get it but not planning my vacation on it.  :chuckle: That will be antelope hunting in August
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

You should put in for Huckleberry and three forks also. There's lots of moose in those too.

I will apply of course but I think I want to focus on getting my antelope this year, 400 pound color phase bear and another 180 class whitetail. I have to tell my self all these things so I don't get depressed when I don't get drawn.  :chuckle:

 :yeah:

Antelope is my #1 priority this year (mostly 'cause I think I have an outside chance of being drawn for that one in MT).  I only have 4 points for Moose, 7 for Elk, and 4 for Deer.  Bought all the raffle tags though.

????? you live close to 108 and 111????  I Elk hunt close to the border tons of moose. A good chance of getting a bigger Canaden Bull.

There's getting to be 45's in all units. My bull came in and at a quick glance I gave him a 50". Ended up being 43" :bash:

That tends to happen a lot PA.  Especially when they charge out of the brush at 15 yards.  Dang they look big!

I made 3 grunts, and he was right there below me. Came in stuck his head in the bank and started throwing dirt , mud and brush all over. Then he came right at me. Shot him at 37 yds. Should have taken my bow :bash:

Where you messed up was not having a couple live decoys with you. :chuckle:

Those units are to the East of me, I have thought of Three Forks, I've seen several in that area. It is only about an 1.5 hours from me and I've only been there five or so times. I just don't spend much time up that way. I just really know my way around 49 and Selkirk.

If you think he's 50", he's probably 40".  If he is 50", you aren't thinking or wondering if he's 50".  Rather, you are pissing your pants.
