I think they are going backwards this year in count. Maybe trying to throw people off to hurry and buy. Place has gone downhill. My buddy bought first morning right away and got number 1204

Are they still saying no does and 2pt are larger for deer?...I stopped buying the permit, but am wondering if they are still imposing these rules, even for youth?

Yes, I understand why...the deer numbers are way down, but I shake my head at the fact that it is over run with elk and yet they don't open it up for more elk harvest.

There's more to life than hunting...there's fishing too!

Same thing with no Doe harvest Iím not sure on youth special permits or not. Itís insane how the deer numbers have dropped since I started buying that pass probably 6-7 years ago. I didnít buy last year. They must have counted back I just got mine in the mail number like 673 or something

I think you're right on going backwards, I bought mine the first morning and got 1060 then bought my wife's and she got a lower number.
Shut up and Hunt!

The wife and I used to predator hunt all winter in there, always managed to kill coyotes and a couple bobcat, we only bought the pass for predator hunting. The changes a couple years ago just made it to expensive. There are alot of predators and it did seem like we had it to ourselves. Kind of miss it but not giving Hancock anymore money to manage their predators.

Just purchased my pass. Have not been in there since they went to the new purchase system. Do they mail out a packet with a window tag and gate key still?
