Whether you take a week off to hunt deer in Washington or a week off to hunt deer in Idaho you are still gone a week so that is a mute point.

 You do mean "moot" point right Karl? ;)

Iím so beat down from 2018, Iím gonna need a couple of months to heal before I think about 2019.

It's all in the hands of the tag gods. But I'll be going somewhere fun & can't wait.  :chuckle:
 
Hoping for CO Elk, OR Antelope & MT Deer. Lots of points but who knows.  :dunno:

As a backup, I already went in & bought an ID elk tag. At least I can rifle hunt/camp in Sept for rutting Bulls.  :hunter:

Wait, you can buy ID elk tags *now* for 2019, and their modern season is during the rut? Is this OTC?

Yes they went on sale Sat Dec 1st. Here is the link letting you know tag availability:

https://idfg.idaho.gov/tag/quotas-nonresident

I missed out last year for an elk tag so didn't want to take any chances this year. Two elk zones sold out in the 1st 45 minutes this year. Other zones will take longer but I wouldn't wait too long.
 
Some mountain areas open Sept 15th OTC rifle.

to add to this a bit....they open early for a reason.  These are difficult units with aggressive terrain so purchase wisely :twocents:

Spent my lunch doing some wyoming research. I like that for elk, we get the results by the end of February so that helps a bunch.

I will have 13 qualitie elk and deer points.

After the 2018 draw there are roughly 3550 people with 13 or more points for 2019 in quality elk and they will have a total of 904,165 squared points.

There were only 860 quality elk permits last year and 25,000 people applied for them.

There were only 895 quality deer permits last year and 22,000 people applied for them.

Even with 13 points its not a "give me."
