Congrats to all the OIL tag winners. There should be lots of good stories and pics to come. I was lucky enough to draw a cow elk tag and a second deer tag also. I'm going to start a thread soon to document this season. It's my goal to get a bear, deer, elk and moose in one season. Bear will be first up in a little over 2 weeks. I'm supper excited about this hunting season! 2015 is going to be my best hunting season so far.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not!

Boom. The Holy Grail of sheep tags. Please..................................................................keep us in the loop. A thread like your elk hunt thread last year with lots of photos will do perfectly, Ernie. Can't wait to see how this plays out. You're going to shoot him with a Sapphire Hawk, right?

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

It's a little stressful to have drawn the damn thing!! I'm trying to adopt the attitude that I'm just gonna scout and hunt my ass off and be happy... Even if I only kill a little 185 ram.... Hehehe

Seriously though... It's hard to grasp the true opportunity. Last year the MT auction tag was filled in this unit and the tag was bought for $450,000.

I'll start a thread as soon as I get up there and start scouting!

And the 185 part was said tongue in cheek!! I'd be happy as a lark with a 180 with my longbow! Rifle, that's a different story! The only time I'll limit myself to bow is the first ten days, when the tag is archery only.

Here is my 7 year old that was unable to go with us because he came down with a cold just before the hunt along with myself as we drop off my moose at the taxidermist.

Kettle Range-East Okanogan Any Moose with 20 points
(Also drew ML-Upper Smith Creek Cow, MF-Skagit Quality Deer, and MF-Palouse Buck)

Skagit quality that's a weird area for a quality tag.  :dunno:

If we get early snow that would not be good for you.  :twocents:

Yeah, not really quality in terms of antlers, but I used to love hunting up there with my cousins around Ross Lake during the late hunts they used to have.  I did kill a big 5x7 blacktail up near the Ross Lake powerline above Buster Brown Flat in 85, but mostly it was just fun hunting and with snow it was actually even better.  Tom used to let us hunt out of the Ross Lake resort with him after they were closed for the season.  The unfortunate thing is I drew the Late Palouse whitetail tag too and it's probably the better tag.  I always look at quality as fewer hunters, better hunt timing, and good numbers of deer/bucks.  The Palouse tag has all that and it's much closer to home.  I got lucky and killed my moose on Oct 1st, so I'll probably be going deer hunting in November after all.

Congrats Highside74, that's a damn fine looking bull.  Very nice.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
If I ageed with you, then we'd both be wrong.
