I've had a regular tag for several years. You get to hunt the same seasons for whitetails, which runs through 12/1 and includes either sex. The only difference is the regular tag allows you to hunt muleys as well when it's open in that unit.

Totally depends on the unit. The whitetail only tag seasons are different than the general tag seasons for many of them.

Here is a very specific example as we are talking about the panhandle units primarily. In Unit 6, the whitetail tags sold out before the regular tags. I was trying not to name the unit, but who cares at this point since I chose not to buy a tag when my number came up. It's just odd to me that the whitetail only tags sold out before the regular tags.

I think addicted1 might have nailed it as there are way more regular tags than whitetail tags in the unit. Maybe many guys were buying both a regular and whitetail at the same time, thus selling out the whitetail tags at least and 2 hours before the regular tags.

Correct. The unit I hunt has different seasons. Only the WT tag allows hunting in the rut.

That's not true. Many of the regular tags (specifically in the panhandle) let you hunt the first couple weeks of November, which many agree that the 8th -15th is "peak" rut. I'm not saying it is, but there are regular tags that allow you to hunt muleys in what many consider the rut. :twocents:

Yesterday was the last day of the deer season in most Panahandle units.

I misunderstood the discussion. I thought thatís what they were talking about.

You cannot buy a 2nd tag until August, so nobody was buying both a regular and whitetail only

I thought the same thing as you Andrew. However, after purchasing my whitetail tag in person, I got on the site and logged in when my online number came up 9:45am PST. It actually allowed me to purchase a regular deer tag even though I had just purchased the whitetail tag. I put the regular deer tag in my cart and even went to checkout to see if it still would allow me to purchase it and it did. At that point, I hit the back button and removed it from my cart.

Yup there was definitely a glitch because a guy I work with bought 2 deer tags because all of the elk tags he wanted were gone. The real question is will they realize it and call him to pick one and refund the other before they mail out the tags?

Yes, I too discovered this after purchasing my general tag. Got back in line and let me purchase a WT tag, I did not actually purchase it as I didnít really want the tag (added to cart and went all they way to checkout). I was just curious as to why I was noticing WT tags selling so fast in areas that it doesnít make a lot of sense. Seems that some may have noticed this and possibly taken a general tag and WT tag. If true, itís pretty easy fix for fish and game if they decide to correct it.

Last year we bought the ďWhitetail OnlyĒ because we had no intention of being there during the time that the season would be open for Mule Deer. Thought we were being generous.  :chuckle:
