I hope that Littlefoot joins us here!  He's the best!!!!  My tag of choice would also be archery Margaret.  The only problem with that tag is the risk of being shut down due to fire danger.  The only better tag would be a bull permit for the Loo-Wit!  It will probably never be offered though.

He's gone into hiding and nobody will hear from him till he's prepared his 2000th post for the other site. hopefully he'll come and take part in this site as well...that said...i want the tag polarbear just invented too :P
i think a bull tag somewhere in the southeast would be the cats ass...but i don't do the elk thing much yet so i don't know much about the tags/seasons/etc. i did see a huge bull there last fall in the blues.

Wenaha any method, watershed any method, walla walla any method. Asotin any.

West side Margaret or Toutle. I have 9 points and hope to draw either Margaret or Toutle bull. We scout both and have cams up. When my brother in law and i get drawn we will have the opportunity for a real nice bull.

I'm not picky.  I'd take any branch antlered bull tag at this time.  Coupled with the all season permit and I would be in heaven.

The Wenaha and WaterShed would be my two choices for sure!  Also Klicker Mountain which is Blue Creek "B" I think...  Seen lots of good bulls there while scouting for deer!

If I had the time I'd put in for eastside tags.  And if I didn't draw I'd hit the NE corner of the state.  I've scored bull's taken outa the Mettaline area that go 350 plus!  We found one dead one year that had gotten tangled up in the barbed wire fence.  It scores 369!  Saw one up there that was an honest 400 incher.  Took a plane ride up there about 6 yrs ago and circled what I thought was a 380 class bull standing in a pond on the same private ground that the dead fence bull was found on!!

The NE corner is as tough a hunt as they come. Very thick!!!!  I feel a bowhunter would have a great shot a tagging a 330-340 class bull.  It's an any bull hunt.  And the elk are far and few between.  But with alot of scouting you can find pockets of them.  It took my partner and I three years of very hard scouting and hunting deer to locate a good spot and even then it was real tough.

The NE corner has great bull's that are real hard to locate.  But most likley if you shoot a branched bull it will be close if not bigger than any other bull you've ever shot.
