Looking at GoHunt Im hoping a couple family members draw decent deer tags. Not guaranteed but odds are good odds for WA.

I drew the East side hunter education incentive tag for any Bull elk in GMU's 336-346 so I'm good, should be a great year.
After having my knee replaced a year ago, and turning 62 this month I'm running at about 50%, but in all honestly I get more excited helping youth get there first Deer or Elk

Congrats! I look forward to what you find (or already found) and how the hunt goes

That bull in your avatar is the one killed on I-90 a few years ago isn't it?  Congrats on your draw!

That's awesome!  How many points did you have?  I haven't drawn an HE tag for a few years.

Gzzz it takes forever. Hard to get excited. Still one more week to put in for tags. Then how long will it take? A month?

Youll always have the points but theres no guarantee there will be any tags for that category. Look at conflict goat if you want the proof.

I am looking forward to the draw. Odds are really slim this year but hoping someone I know draws a good tag.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Had a late whitetail HE tag a few years ago.  Weather didn't cooperate and I wound up eating it too(only had one weekend to hunt).  Good luck with the elk tag!   :tup:
