Drew it 5 years ago, killed  a 5 point, lots of elk and I didn't buy the permit and glad I didn't. My only choice also. Draw it and I will get you some info. Even lend you my maps. modern for me

Not sure how you figure you have 20% chance of drawing this year....more likely have 20% chance of drawing it in next 5 to 10 years.

I'm talking about the muzzy bull tag NOT quality. have u looked at the points spread by hunt choice and/or hunt name/ category?.  I have 17 points. I understand there is the random/luck factor that messes it all %'s up.
I have developed an equation that has been validated by Out Door Central and wdfw. 
just joking...lol.

Look at the topo maps. It's big country.

" 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

All depends on where a guy wants to hunt. With a white river Hancock permit you could drive around all day every day

It's more fun and you can see a lot more up in the alpine, my  :twocents: anyway.  Hunting that requires a lot of hiking over rugged ground.  I did 30+ miles in a few days with my buddy last year, so yes get in the best shape you can

Looks like I will be driving around with my wife's Grandpa in the unit.  He is in his 90s so we will not get to far from the road. Man can he shoot though, Old world war 11 Marine and he is still a hell of a shot. looking forward to driving him around again this year.

Hope for a good early snow storm.   The buck creek flats and huckleberry ridge will be prime :tup:
