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!

Pretty sure after drawing a moose tag, you're banned from the LL

I can't think of any reasons that I don't want to draw, and I don't want to lie. So I'll have to use a different strategy and ask the draw gods to let me draw more than one special permit this year. How about a bull moose permit and a quality deer or elk permit? I turned 50 this year, so let's just call it a late 50th birthday present. Also I haven't drawn anything since the bighorn tag in 2014, so I'm definitely due. It's been 13 years since I've drawn Quality elk.   :o

We see more Elk during odd years than we do even years. So I’m sure we will get drawn this year.

Too many OIL tags for me.  If I draw, I will complete the hat trick :yike:

I don't want to draw because I'd rather be tuna fishing in September.

that is, unless I draw.

Drawing a quality tag is kind of like the Mariners going to the World Series. Every spring there’s talk about “this is the year”, and 17 years later you’re still waiting...

I satisfied my goat desires just following jackelopes thread last year. A goat tag for me would be unnecessary at this point and a waste.

My wall space is limited, the last I need to do is whack a 370”+ bull and stress over where I’ll hang’em

Good one! I have the same problem. It would especially be a problem if I drew moose and quality elk both this year.   :yike:
