I would be so bummed if I finally drew the permit and then got this news. With the amount of moisture and awesome feed we've had so far this year I may gamble and keep the tag. Id be in there scouting now. Tough decision to make though. :bash:

Huh, glad I didn't pull that ML bull tag I applied for this year. Tough choice for the tag holders!

I'd keep it, you have just as much chance of pulling it with one point next year as you do with 10 points.

I'll give them credit for giving you the option of getting your points back - they don't do that all the time.

Must be overly busy schedule if theyíre allowing that. Thatís a tough choice to have to make.

Go with your gut. If you aren't a gambler you better send er on back :twocents:

334 is still open with that tag. I heard about a decent bull being killed there.

That's a shame. I spotted a bachelor group right off of 82 on the training center a few weeks ago coming back from Ellensburg. There was at least four in the group sporting really developed racks, a few them really tall and symmetrical. They seemed too impressive for that time of year. And yes, the browse was still pretty green and robust from the rains. Hope it works out for you.

The month of September is when the Japanese train. Iím pretty sure after that itís more accessible to hunt. My buddy works out of State with a two week on two week off schedule and doesnít have much flexibility. I think he going to turn his tag back and try again when he has a little bit more free time. Good luck to all that do decide to hunt it 👍
