I was told NV did their draw yesterday and results will be posted tomorrow
Looks to be true...video is long, cut minute 8
It's been the Friday before Memorial day for the past dozen years. What would cause them to change this year? I don't have timd to watch the video. Ed F
They already did the draw on Monday, by law results posted within 48 hours. They live-streamed the draw on Monday so results will be out sometime Wednesday at the latest.
State law once the draw was complete the results have to be posted within 48 hours.
Other than AZ which will definitely be a long shot, NV is my last hope for a home run...
I watched the video at 8 minutes... Wednesday it is. One positive thing to come out of all this chaos. Good luck. Ed F
What Ed said...Fingers Crossed, daddy needs a tag! Lol
Working all night so should get front row seating:-)
Good luck to all you guys in the lotto!
Hope to hear of at least a couple Bowsiters winning one of those big jackpot tags!
Having to get up twice each night to pee is finally going to pay off!!!!
Tilzbow thats funny! Not sure I will look until morning. If I draw a sheep or elk tag think I would be too excited to sleep. The Year I drew my Oregon sheep tag I didn't fall asleep until 3 am.
Tilzbow, that's hilarious.
10 PM here when it's midnight there, so I won't have to wait till the Sioux Alarm wakes me up.
Hell, Ike, it may still be midnight in AK before they get them up...
Working these nights is tough on a guy... Especially a non-night owl! If I do draw a good one over there, most likely not sleep all day and be screwed for tomorrow night!
Good luck gents, still working here and holding out for the midnight madness.
I think they're entering the tags that were successful first because I got one and the rest still just show as "Entered."
A tag I didn't mean to put in for... wrong unit. I don't know how I screwed that up. Unit 32/34 Pronghorn. Put in for any weapon season because I can't hunt the archery season due to my sheep hunt and planned to hunt archery during the rifle hunt. Put in for the right season, wrong unit. I can't believe I did that.
Looks like the silver state tags have drawn - no luck there.
Looks like I won deer and antelope tags so far with elk, California sheep and desert sheep still pending...
All results are posted now. Mine shows unsuccessful across the board.
Unsuccessful across the board for me- Come on Wyoming!!!!
Well something didn’t work right. I got no email but every application I have shows a nasty red “unsuccessful”. It will be Wyoming deer and antelope this year. That’s not a bad consolidation prize.
Got the email. Successful for deer and antelope. Nada for the rest of them...
Not Successful in all
Didn’t want to shoot a big bull anyway.
Or deer or sheep :^)
Double Digit Points Curse continues for me dang it! on Sheep & Elk
Good for you Tavis!
Good luck, Robb
Pronghorn for me....24 points for sheep now!
Thought I drew mule deer for a second, until I looked closer!...............but no 0-fer-5. Congrats to those who drew.
Archery Elk 111-115 , Nevada has been good to me. I have drawn Deer, Elk, Antelope, Desert Sheep & California Sheep over the years!
That’s why we gamble in Nevada Mark!
Congratulations on a great elk tag and on the previous ones in Nevada!
negative on NV.
Damn Mark, I’m a lifetime resident and have been applying for 43 years and that’s more species than I’ve drawn. Congrats to you!!!
I came up empty with over 20 points for 2 species of sheep and mountain goat. 7 points for cow elk wasn’t even enough. Total of 11 swings in my home state with a minimum of 6 points and nothing. I’m in shock! Looks like I’ll be fishing a bunch this fall....
Nothing, again, 0 for 27 this year on limited draws again this year. I guess a good year in a way not to draw.
Ouch!....alot of whiffs for you NV folks.
Pulled an archery deer tag with 4 points. Pumped to chase fuzzy horned muleys in NV again!
Mark, Wow congrats on drawing the best elk tag on the planet. PM or text me once you get your maps or familiar with the unit. I was lucky enough to hunt it back in 2007. Passed on a 400” twice, a 380” and many more. Ended up harvesting a 350”.
Nada for me. No surprise.
I figured out what I did. I meant to click on PH 21, 22 as second choice and accidentally clicked on 32, 34. I'm considering turning the tag back in because I can draw a better tag in Wyoming.
Late Archery Muley tag...3rd Choice!
Good for you Mark
Not sure if ya need any intel or not but I did a Photo/Scouting gig last July over there and I've hunted Muleys and Antelope over the years with in those very units.
See my link above for the pix.
Good luck, Robb
PS~~ remember the Muzzy Muley buck hunters have their Opening week the Last week of your Bow Bull dates.....if memory serves me right---
What's the Muzzy Muley buck hunters ? I'll take all the information I can get. Thanks
Excited that I drew archery elk for 104, 108, 121 and archery deer 241-245. The draw gods have been good to me this year.
Heck yea! Another great elk tag!
Muzzleloader Muley Buck hunters...….
Good luck, Robb
Ha Ha, guess I don't look too sharp!
No worries Mark
Sometimes when we are very excited, we just glaze over something!!
Late archery deer for me !
Nevada was good to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks, to the people that offered help! A lot of great people in ELY!!!!!!!!!
Hell of a bull! Congratulations!
Yeah, but can you make a sandwich?
Absolutely incredible bull!!!! Congratulations!!!
greg simon, that's funny! Yes, peanut butter.
CONGRATS on a BEAUTIFUL bull!
Holy moly!!!! Congrats. Beautiful!
Where are the other 19 guys
1boonr, I prefer hunting by myself. I did call a friend in Ely & he showed up with three other gentlemen to break it down & pack it out. People that didn't know me from Adam! There are some great sportsmen in Ely!!!!!!
Congrats, good god what length on that thing.
That second picture is even better!
Never ceases to amaze me how great most hunters are. Most are more than willing to drop everything and help out in about any situation.
There is a little more to this story guys. In 2015 I drew a Shiras tag in Idaho. Turns out there were no outfitters or guides in that unit. So, I asked for some help on Bowsite and a few days later Mark replied” I think I can help”. Well , Mark helped my wife and I scout and even planned a few days off to hunt with me. But on day one I killed a bull when I was really scouting. It was a bull Mark saw chasing cows on his way to work and put a note on my truck ! Then , just as in this story 4 of his friends who didn’t know me from Adam showed up and packed him out! Then they refused any payment , gifts , dinner , meat etc. , just kind people glad to help a stranger. We have become great friends and he has even been to LA ( lower Alabama) to hunt with me and hang out with my family and friends. What goes around comes around and that sometimes applies to kindness. Nobody deserves this bull and the help from strangers more than the man you see in these pictures. Never had someone be more genuinely nice and unselfish As Mark and couldn’t be happier for him. And in case you are wondering this is no fluke. He’s killed many trophies with his bow including desert and RM bighorn sheep and is a world class houndsman Way to go Mark!!
Wow....that's all I got....just "Wow"! Care to share any details or the story?
Thanks for the “rest of the story” Albert! Good things happen to good people! ;-)
I LOVE to hear stories like this! TRUE SPORTSMEN!
Albert, Thanks for the kind words my friend. I gained a lot of pleasure helping you on your hunt, plus a great friendship! Best of luck to you & your boys in New Mexico! Send pictures ??
Stud of a bull! Congrats!!!
What a bull! Congrats Mark! Looking forward to hearing the story
Thanks for the back story, glidingindian. Sounds like good people.
Mark, sorry, but you can't kill bulls like that in cotton camo jeans and a Carhartt jacket. lol
Congrats to all! IMO....the backstory of friends and strangers helping each other is just as important as the kill itself. Well done gents!
A great bull, and in these challenging times, perhaps an even greater story. Congrats!
Great job! And sounds well deserved. I’m still jealous.
This story made my Labor day. Congratulations, Mark!
