Just got charged for LE elk!! Don't know if its my daughters rifle tag or my archery tag. Either way we had 1 and 0 points respectively.

09-May-18
Whoot, say it isn’t so...Congrats!

From: Don K
09-May-18
This is the one time I want a 800 dollar charge on my credit card!! Congrats

From: YZF-88
09-May-18
Also got charged for one general deer tag. Still expecting at least one more.

09-May-18
A week earlier than last year. Maybe we'll get the email next week.

From: Treeline
09-May-18
Nothing showing up on my card yet...

"Either way we had 1 and 0 points respectively."

So much for the point creep theory in UT. Congrats!

Wow, didn't expect that. Either me or my son are hunting moose, sheep, or bison.

From: YZF-88
09-May-18
Holy crap Randy, is there even more than one random tag for the OIL hunts you applied for?

From: Big Fin
09-May-18
YZF - Nope, none of them have more than a single NR random tag.

From: sticksender
09-May-18
Exciting Big Fin. Now the torture is the wait! We went through the same thing in '15 when my son & I had both applied for the same LE hunts on the same card.

From: Don K
09-May-18
Yea!!! L.E. Elk!! Utah here I come

From: otcWill

Big Fin, I sure hope this is not some cruel hoax as my card is showing the same thing. My angst is if it is Goat or Desert Sheep!!!

From: Bowhunter
09-May-18
Nothin yet:(

09-May-18
Why Why Why the wait... urrghhh 3rd year waiting

From: Native Okie
10-May-18
Nothing for me yet.

10-May-18
Great there goes 2 of the couple dozen OIL tags...

JK, grats to both of you guys!

From: grubby
10-May-18
I cant wait to see how this pans out! Randy, any way it goes should make for some good shows.

10-May-18
Congrats Steve and Randy! Hope it holds true.

10-May-18
Got mine.. WooHoo Time to start buyin more stuff I don't need to celebrate..

From: JRABQ
10-May-18
Congrats to those drawn so far, I'm still holding out hope for something, UT is one western state I have not hunted yet.

From: bradbear
10-May-18
I know when my CC was hit with the OIL fee years back, it was a very exciting wait to see which I drew. CONGRATS!

From: Sandbrew
10-May-18
Congrats Big Fin- Hoping it's sheep karma for helping out the RMBS last month. Sandbrew

From: YZF-88
10-May-18
I wouldn't freak out if you haven't been charged yet. Many haven't even been hit for general deer tags (myself included).

From: Bowhunter
10-May-18
Well that makes me feel better I was allready losing hope! Will they finish hitting cards today?

From: HDE
10-May-18
My card records charges fairly quick, so I'm more confident than not that UT will follow my NM results...

10-May-18
I'm pretty sure it takes them a few days to hit all the cards.

From: KHunter
10-May-18
Yzf are you looking at pending authorization or only looking for actual charges posted after the pending authorization period has completed. Huge different timeframe each shows up.

They conduct and draw and hit cards for the deer and elk before touch the OIL stuff. Since many have pending authorization for OIL tags I am dubious you have a deer tag coming but no pending authorization already on file. I could be wrong but every year guys totally misread what is actually happening.

As for me I believe I know I have no drawn tags thinking they are done hitting cards already.

From: YZF-88
10-May-18
I am looking at actual charges to my card. My co-workers still don't have charges for general deer tags. Many of us put in for 100% draw tags as well.

10-May-18
KHunter, that's not how I understand it from years past just reading about people getting their cards hit. They do have an order for which they do the draw, but they don't have an order in which they hit cards. They do the entire draw, then start hitting cards (how I understand it).

From: Nesser
10-May-18
Certainly seems like guys are paying for tags today. I’m on the cusp of an LE deer tag so I’ve checked my cc about 10 times so far this morning.

From: Don K
10-May-18
I have Chase for my card and it showed up last night about 8 and its showing as pending. Now I gotta talk my wife into wanting to go to Vegas to visit her mom. Then I can scoot over to the Southwest Desert to scout. :) Just gotta sell it right

From: bowhunter1
10-May-18
Has anyone been hit for deer?

From: Nesser
10-May-18
My thoughts exactly

From: HDE
10-May-18
"Has anyone been hit for deer?"

Yes, lots in fact. Just not on this forum.

10-May-18
I got hit for a general rifle deer tag. I just booked a hunt with Scott Limmer last week too.

Wonder if I can return the tag to Utah? My first year applying.

From: bowhunter1
10-May-18
S##t, I thought I would get the cliffs this year ,

From: HDE
10-May-18
You can surrender with LE and OIL, not sure about general.

10-May-18
Hahaha I don't know what I am so eager every year top be disappointed!!!!

From: Bowhunter
10-May-18
Nothing today:( not looking good

10-May-18
I got archery deer for Beaver..

From: YZF-88
10-May-18
Just got the 2nd general archery deer charge I was expecting.

11-May-18
Right on EF Stick a Beaver!!!

From: Treeline
11-May-18
No hits here. Looks like another year of donations of license and app fees to UT...

From: Dikndirt
11-May-18
Well it appears my Utah muley streak will end this year.... 1st time I wont have a tag in 48 years.... feels kinda strange.

From: bowbender77

Results by email, Friday 11th 9:14 P.M. UNSUCCESSFUL on 5 applications :>( poop!

From: KHunter

The "Filmore-Beaver" area always cracks me up. Stay classy, Utah!

From: YZF-88
12-May-18
Just got the email. Can't believe I'm saying this but I'm glad I didn't draw archery elk. My daughter did draw a late rifle tag!

From: kevin3006
12-May-18
Seems I was successful on a random Book Cliffs / Wild Horse Bench hunters choice bison tag. What a shocker. OIL tag was not something that I really planned on. Any info would be appreciated.

12-May-18
Congrats on the Bison tag. Do you know if Pope & Young accept bison from the Book Cliffs? I tend to think they haven’t officially added that area?

From: pav
12-May-18
Seven more points in Utah. Given my hunt schedule for 2018, can't say I'm too disappointed.

From: Shrewski
12-May-18
Boy o boy, Utah is getting efficient. Desert sheep and Elk were what I started with in Utah so have double the points of everything else. I drew a random Mountain Goat tag!

From: sticksender
12-May-18
Wow congrats Shrewski!

From: Trial153
12-May-18
I got my email today! Talk about depressing! Lol

Wow what tag Big Fin! Congrats!

12-May-18
Congrats to Kevin, Randy and Steve on their Bison and Goat tags. If you need help packing out that monster beast let me know:)

Congrats and enjoy the ride! C

From: otcWill

Grats boys! Clean miss across the board for me

From: Ron Niziolek
12-May-18
Congrats Randy - you drew my bison tag:) Now going into next year with 20 points. Can't wait to hear how your hunt goes.

From: Trial153
12-May-18
The email they sent me ...talk about depressing. Lol

From: Bowhunter
12-May-18
Nothin yet no email or cc hit?

Grats Big Fin, looking forward to seeing that show, that ought to be a good one.

9 more points for me.

Congrats Fin!!

Got my email as well !

From: JSW
12-May-18
Apparently they gave out 2 NR archery tags for Henry Mt bison. I received an email this morning stating that I was successful. It looks like Randy and I will be chasing the same bison. I've been dreaming about this for 20 years.

From: Native Okie
13-May-18
Dang, congrats Jim!

From: Outdoordan
13-May-18
It looks like lightning struck twice for me, Wyoming moose and Utah Elk!

13-May-18
Wow, grats. Busy August to October for you. GL.

From: HDE
13-May-18
A recent email just confirmed my suspicion that my UT app would follow my NM apps. No matter, my kids have enough hunts to keep me busy this fall/winter. Still waiting on my daughter's results.

Besides, if I feel like I need to go, there are a couple of OTC opportunities out there...

13-May-18
Nate, wishing you and your kids the best of times on your hunts.

Jim, you seem to have had some good luck the past couple years. Grats!

From: BULELK1
13-May-18
That is Great news to read so many of our Bowsite Family drew in my home state!!

Anything I can do to help ya'll out, feel free to reach-out.

I just got back from up in Wyo last week and it was wonderful to be away from the internet!! haha

Awesome 2 Bowsiters got the bison archery tags.

From: Treeline
13-May-18
Some awesome tags pulled in UT! Congratulations!

Kevin got my bison tag! So going into it in '19 like Ron at 20 PP's. Maybe Ron and I will be the lucky ones next year in the Bookcliffs and the Henrys...

From: HDE
13-May-18
Thanks Ike

From: HDE
13-May-18
I counted 9 and there are a lot more than just this forum. That number would increase for the random draws if they did away with expo tags...

The only thing max points do for you in UT is help you on the first half of the allocated tags for a hunt. There are no guarantees unless you're the only guy or there are enough tags the first go around.

For a point system, UT has the best.

From: Shrewski
13-May-18
Utah’s point system was MUCH better before SWF stole all those NR tags. Now it is very hard for a guy who has been putting in for over 20 years to PLAN on drawing in most units.

From: HDE
13-May-18
^^^ DNR isn't innocent either...

From: uteangler
13-May-18
I gained some more points. Congrats to those that drew! And good luck this fall!

From: MeanMachine
14-May-18
Began applying in the year 2000. 66 Bonus points accumulated and still no nonresident tag in the great state of Utah. Depressing but I'm not quitting anytime soon! Congrats to those who drew and keep trying to those who didn't.

From: Bigdan
14-May-18
Got my email nothing but bonus points

From: Quinn @work
14-May-18
No emails or pending transactions on card yet? Anyone else?

From: Mad Trapper
15-May-18
You guys who pulled the Henry Bison tags, how many points did you have? I will have 19 for next year.

From: 4blade
15-May-18
I have a charge from last friday for deer that has cleared the bank but no email yet.
