22 points for Quality Elk.  Hoping this is finally my year... :rolleyes:

I'm one of those horrible westsiders that usually doesn't put in on the east side to try and take one of YOUR elk permits.  :chuckle: My main reason for the multi is the ability to appy east, if my multi ends up not being used after that, then I'll be on a OIL hunt looking for a 350+ bull !!

I hope you get lucky like I did in 2021 when I finally drew Multi elk with 11 points and was able to put in for eastside where I was lucky to draw a quality tag also with 11 points.

thats why I wanted multi elk. Put in for eastside permits and when I didnít draw I was going to chase westside elk. Hopefully you will draw your eastside permit!

Thanks you guys for the wishes, up to 28 points this year!  clockum archery would be pretty sweet!  Definitely not trying for one of those rifle rut tags, just seems waaaay too impossible.

I think Muzzy would be the way to go but this year it is a late opener so I would do Archery if it were me but alas I had drew it a couple years ago and at 51 this year will never see it again I would guess.

Muzzy is very tempting, Iíd prefer that. But more archery tags gives me a (false) sense of better odds .

We would all have better odds if they got rid of all the bonus points tomorrow.  Make it random.

I know they wonít due to the revenue but they should if they wanted to improve the draw.

still over two weeks left to put in....... so stupid how long they have the draws open.  Not sure about how the odds could get better, just too many hunters and not enough tags anymore.
