Somebody has to know somebody who knows somebody that knows somebody that's seen a pic of his harvests from this year, come on people...

Pennsylvania tag has been filled.  That is according to fellow chuck shooters I correspond with from Pennsylvania.  Sheep tag was filled on Eaton's ranch according to six or eight different people I have spoken to.  IDK anything about the other tags

The Commission just recently revised the rules so that Reichert can't kill a bull in GMU 334 this year...

That didn't clear anything up.  The next loop hole is plain as day with this wording. Technically any unit open for elk hunting is open for bull elk.  Even in an antlerless only unit you could end up shooting a calf bull, so you just legally shot a bull in that unit.  If you could shoot that bull then you could use one of these tags to shoot any other bull.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

It specifically lists GMU 334 as not being open. Problem solved. It should have always been that way. But I still don't agree with Reichert exploiting that issue, and claiming that it wasn't clear.

It clears up the GMU 334 confusion but leaves open the possibility of hunting elk in a GMU open to antlerless elk only, because antlerless elk can be bulls.

What units are only open to antlerless elk?

I don't know of any presently but there could be in the future at which time they'd need to rewrite the WAC.

Oh it's perfectly clear to me for 334 but then again it was perfectly clear to me when it obviously wasn't to a hunter that goes after these trophy bulls all the time.  I can just see that there is a way around this new rule maybe not in 334 and maybe not in any units under the current regs.  But if down the line they change another units regs to be similar to 334 they will have to address this issue again.

That "loophole" was located ex post facto by Steven Hormel.  It was not even on the radar of anyone who was claiming that Morgan Grant had granted permiSession to shoot that bull
