Oh there’s elk to be had. Buddy killed a 320 6x6 I there last year and another buddy killed a real heavy 5x5. The tags still not worth the hype is all. Guys “get lucky” and get a tag and think they have a elk in the freezer already. You don’t, and out of state you probably won’t. Like I said kill the first rag horn you see

So I was one of the lucky few who was able to buy an A tag this morning...however, my hunting partner was 10 seconds behind me and was SOL.  I'm really bummed right now because we had spent several hours planning and scouting with OnX and Google Earth.  I felt like we had a solid, fun game plan, but now it's all up in the air.  Anyone else get the Sawtooth tag?

your buddy will have a chance when the unsold outfitter tags go on sale Aug 1

I and a lot of others wanted to see it go to draw for many reasons, oh well. You can getcha a bull.
Get a wood tag or two.
If you hear woofs bail, run, drive 20 miles in the opposite direction!!
Plan 24 spots to hunt and move if you don’t get into em within 5 hours at a given spot.
After your hunt email IDFG and suggest that it goes to draw :)

What's the reasoning behind wanting it to go to a draw instead of it remaining under a limited quota?

Personally?
1. What 50+ year old NR has a snowball’s chance in hell of acquiring a tag within 3.5 seconds?
1a. This demand is at least 84% due to the fact that IDFG makes mention of this hunt once a month in blast emails or posts on their website

2. It would level the playing field

3. It would take 4-5 thousand applicants out of the current controlled hunt pool...because they’d be applying for Sawtooth A/B

Personally I think it should go to a draw to make it easier for the people who want one to get one ( to your point 1) and I’m not in that group. like I said and you echo the tag rush is all hype. After the first year of it being a draw there wouldn’t be as many applicants as there are current tag numbers because it’s not worth the draw. Locals could pick up the none drawn ones as leftovers and probably take there time doing it.

All in all though the system of hype probably benefits guys like me. This “ premier capped” unit gets a couple thousand elk hunters In it and the OTC units I hunt hover around 400
