Yes this was my plan is just start applying and hopefully have that oh shot moment.  Any oil tag a cross the country seems like it is a lottery so I don't have my hopes up at all.  My main concern was applying for a unit, and if lighting strikes and I get drawn, have it be mostly private.  Thanks for all the in put.

Do you only get 1 selection per species?  Not like washington where you get 4

Just randomly pick a unit, odds are you wont draw anyway.  Don't give it too much brain power.  If lightening strikes and you do end up drawing the Oh #$%$ factor will just go up knowing you don't have a clue what units you put in for.

 :yeah: pretty much how I roll, I figure drawing a tag is way harder than finding a sheep or goat in a crappy unit anyways  :chuckle: just send it
 
I do agree with this strategy if you apply for oil in multiple states. Forgot 1 important thing
Once you draw make sure you get on every hunting forum you have never been on. Post something like I I have never been to this unit or state. However I have been e-scouting and researching online. Not afraid to burn some boot leather but wont set eyes on the unit until the 3-4 days of vacation I have for this tag. I cant believe I drew this tag and just want to do it justice. Not asking for honey holes but I will take them! Pm me seems like forum members really appreciate these posts 😂😂😂😂

Yup, MM is a good one for this. The locals are real friendly over there. Extra credit if you drew on less than 10 points too :chuckle:

Pretty much, you can pick a 2nd choice but you wont draw a 2nd choice

All the sheep hunts are solid. All 7 non resident tags between both species  :chuckle:

Goats are about the same. How many points do you have for each?
Karl, how good do you think the desert hunts really are.  Would probably rather by one of those, get the tax deduction and have the money go to conservation as opposed to going to Mexico.  I am already booked down there but have been really contemplating the strategy.  Might be too late, but in the end, my guess is here you would be slightly less trophy quality most likely, maybe a bit more money but close, but a whole lot safer staying in the states.
