Utah's hitting cards
Looks like I drew Book Cliffs archery mule deer, should be awesome.
I'll wait til my rejection email :( that way I can still think I have a chance for longer
I just got hit for a general deer tag. Still hoping for elk.
Congrats Matt that’s awesome!
Man I dislike my Capital One card for several reasons, but top on the list is they are soooooo slow to show charges. At least I hope that's the issue.......
Congrats Matt. Good luck on the hunt. Hopefully I can overtake the creep and draw that tag of these years.
Utah took my money again!
Congrats, Matt! How many points did it take to draw it?
Got dang lucky and drew a bighorn sheep tag that I was not expecting! Archery only tag.....unreal!
General archery deer for me
Yeah, whatever Matt, bite me…
I'm in for books also.. just about 6pts short... congrats funnest mule deer hunt in utah.. crazy amount of deer..
Damn Twinetickler...You did get dang lucky!!
I drew a non resident archery elk permit. Pretty fired up
Robb, don’t you dare come hear and tell us you pulled another coveted Limited Enty tag outta your ass. :)
Nice, congrats guys...Except Matt!
Good for you Walt!!
The Dirty Devil unit has been putting out some nice Rams-------->
Enjoy the Bookies Matt.
Good luck, Robb
That's my tag, Matt...have a blast! Did you draw random or bonus tag?
I've got a pending charge this morning for a gen deer tag.
Congrats to everyone drawing the awesome LE tags!
Yes , I drew , now just have to see what LE unit for deer ,, Tom
Either my little brother or I drew Wasatch muzzleloader elk. Won’t be sure until emails are sent.
Unsuccessful in Utah once again! 18 points.
No CC hits... Must mean another dry run for Utah!
No Desert, Moose or Elk again. Oh well when I started applying 19 years ago I knew it would eventually be a retirement hunt by the time I drew.
Early this morning I was nearly suicidal/homicidal after getting a text from credit card telling me they declined payment to Utah for an elk tag.
But Utah is very forgiving in their draw process (Thank You!!), just got the email saying I got Wasatch archery elk!
Email this afternoon confirms I really suck at drawing limited tags out west! Persistence will pay off for me sometime. I hope........ TODDY
Got the email today. I now have 21 points.
No dice on LE elk. This is the year to have it from a timing perspective! General archery deer only.
0-5 in Utah. Already drew NR LE elk (2010) and LE deer (2019)...so wasn't expecting much.
The E-mails are out and I have my results.
We're officially over 1/2 way through the application season as far as results go.
I guess I should buy a lottery ticket. Book Cliffs South Elk with 0 points.
No LE elk and no Gen deer for me. Last year my odds were 100% and 95%. Something changed.
With the later dates and Covid keeping people in the USA I’ll bet apps were way up and some high point holders cashes in. I should have drawn Fishlake archery with 17 points.
You didn’t draw Fishlake with 17 points ???!!!!!
A friend of a friend drew the NR Beaver elk tag. Lucky dog also drew archery sheep in CO this year.
YZF-88 No sir, to my great surprise I did not draw it! Already had it planned. Utah hates me.
I was hoping some one would have drawn the LE Oak Creek buck tag or the OIL Oak Creek Ram tag (Cali sub-species of the Rocky Ram) as I did some Chukar hunting on the mountain in Dec/Jan and I sure saw some nice bucks a a few nice Rams.
It would be fun to share some intel.
Good luck, Robb
I'm that someone that drew one of the two the archery ram tags on the Oak Creek. Would love any intel on a big old ram!
I drew south slope diamond mtn for deer, I really wanted that tag .
bowhunter1: I was competing with you for that tag. Congratulations! How many points?
SteveB— I had 16 points , have you hunted that unit ?
I got an email that our group was successful for Mule Deer Dedicated Hunter, San Juan/Abajo Mnt.
My wife’s buddy drew the bookcliffs LE roadless elk tag two years ago...turned it in Did not draw last year, which she should have since she turned the tag in… Then again didn’t draw this year even though she was ahead of everyone with points...I don’t get this goofy state Any ideas??
Jake, how do you know she was ahead of everyone in points? Given this year's later dates, I expect some high point holders who have previously just bought points or only applied for the "best" hunt have now entered the draw for more reasonable hunts with their points.
Especially when dates or rules change, past results are not necessarily indicative of future outcomes.
Jake Brake, if she was putting in for BCR archery, there is only one tag now, so it is random. They also stole the muzzleloader tag out of that unit so there are no NR tags for that. The only one she could have “more points” that everyone else is the any weapon tag where there is still one max point NR tag and one random NR tag.
Good points guys...thanks
I just don’t understand how you draw, turn it back and not automatically get it the following year...that should be a given
What are your hunt dates Walt?
Late like the other bow only Ram tags?
Hey Robb, yes Nov 20 - Dec 12. I hope a few make it through the two early any weapon hunts. They should be pretty heavy in the rut at that time....I hope
No doubt, some Rutting activity still.
I'll toss ya some intel
Well, I was looking at my credit card and noticed a $1000 charge from Utah DFG which can only be LE elk. I double checked my results and it says I was unsuccessful, so that could only mean that my dad drew (I put my dad in a few different state's draws). I had told him to check his email when the results came out, but he didn't see the email. Sure enough, I had him check again and it was in his spam folder and he drew West Desert Deep creek LE bull elk archery. Looks like I'll be in Utah this September!
I was able to draw a rifle elk tag for the Wasatch.
Congrats to your dad, Ike! I bet you'll have just as much fun as if you'd drawn the tag yourself....maybe even more!
Good luck Ike! That should be an interesting hunt, I've heard lots of wide ranging opinions on the deep creeks. I'm sure you guys will have a great time no matter what.
Have fun out there with your dad, Ike!
Good for your Dad Iddy!
Maybe tie in a visit to Great Basin NP on the Nv. side of the border when your on a scouting trip.
Anything I can do, let me know.
Good luck, Robb
