Taunting the Draw Gods
« on: May 30, 2018, 08:11:29 AM »
I was just posting on another depressing "waiting for the draw odds" and another member's post got me thinking.  He was daring the draw gods by saying all of the reasons that he didn't want to draw.  I know when I was an Army Ranger we used to draw a "rain turtle" on the ground and pee on it, just to dare the weather gods to rain on us. 

So... list the reasons you DON'T want to draw a tag this year and dare the draw gods with me...

I have an 11 year old that I have to guide this season, and I'd really like to get him on his first bear, plus he's two-for-two on deer and we'll need to work hard to keep his streak going.
Already have Idaho deer and elk tags BOUGHT AND PAID FOR.  Plus I'm a school teacher and I DON"T HAVE TIME TO HUNT A GOOD TAG, since getting time off in the fall is next to impossible. 
Hear that Draw Gods?  I'M FINE WITH ANOTHER YEAR OF SEEING A WHOLE PAGE OF "NOT SELECTED"...
...SO BRING IT...

I'm having a house built, there's a bun in the oven at home, and we're preparing to move all this fall and winter.

I still want to draw  :chuckle:  I'm in for draws in Idaho and Washington, points for Wyoming.

I tossed the gauntlet down earlier this month by burning vacation on a trip to NC. I even ramped it up a notch by having a great time out there. BRING IT!!!

 :chuckle:  I like your style pathfinder.  Let me give this a try......

I really don't want to draw because I've got a few hundred hours of vacation time on the books, I've only got 3 deer tags so far this year,  weapons are all shooting good, I get my knee tuned up next weekend so I'll be very fit come fall, I've saved up too much gas money over the winter and spring.   

Wait I think I did that wrong :chuckle:

Maybe this is my problem I go into the drawing every year thinking this is my year.

Deer herds are in decline where I hunt so it would suck to get the Qtag.

I have nobody to help me pack out a goat so that would suck too.  :chuckle:

I still have half a freezer full of moose and mule deer meat.  I got drawn for Montana and will probably have a doe permit too.  Plus, I'M GOING TO BE THE KING OF THE LOSER LOUNGE!

I used up most of my vacation time going to Africa, I've got three new hunters and want to try and get them some decent hunts here, got a trip to Wyoming for Antelope planned, yup pretty much guarantees I'll draw a goat tag this year I'd say.
