I can understand why poeple put in for ghost points, but I cant do it you just never know if its your year. If its a long awaited tag you will find a way to make it. :twocents:

Sitting out a year on the moose permits, or any of the once in a lifetime hunts, is a very bad thing!    :yike:

 Especially this year, because if you draw next year the tag will cost three times as much!  You might as well take your chances this year and if drawn you'll save $200 on the tag, from what it will cost in the future.

OK, you convinced me........I'm out for good then.  You guys won't have to compete with me anymore.  I'll quit throwing away my money now on those permits that I will never draw......
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

$150 in tags = 37.5 gallons of gas = at least one trip from Wetside to Eastside

If you shoot a moose, give a quarter away for a tank of gas and come home with 3 quarters for the freezer.

If hunting is about the buget , then possibly hunting isn't in one's heart . there's so many little vices we have that in a years time we could save the money if we choose to do so .
My wife told me that I hunt way more than I did when we first got married. I said yeah I know isn't it great !

Hunter Ed Incentive Permits are out. Not sure on the others.  Anyone have experience in GMU 290 Desert Area in the last couple years?
