From: Grasshopper
21-Feb-19
I drew with 7 points. My buddy who wanted to put in for a general tag as a second choice did not. Guess I will be hunting solo...still stoked!

From: PushCoArcher
21-Feb-19
Struck out all around. Not a surprise with the bull tag but thought I'd at least draw my type 6. Oh well c'mon New Mexico!!

21-Feb-19
3rd time in 4yrs my son drew a random general. We’re pumped to say the least!

From: Mule Power
21-Feb-19
Is it just me or do the draw odds report for special elk not include the numbers for the general license?

From: BullSac
21-Feb-19
Mule, I don’t see it either

21-Feb-19
MP it was just added. Looks like 1 point in SPecial went from 97% last year to 17.56% this year

From: Z Barebow
21-Feb-19
No soup for me.

From: WapitiBob
21-Feb-19
1 point was 17% special gen

From: Steve H.
21-Feb-19
The leftover list with today's date shows ZERO leftover bull tags and ZERO leftover cow/calf tags--can this possibly be correct?????

From: Mule Power
21-Feb-19
17!!!!!!!!!! Holy $h1t

There are no leftovers until after the resident draw....

From: elkstabber

Wyoming General for me !!! Yahoo !!!

From: Mule Power
21-Feb-19
Looks like 2 points doesn’t cut it in the regular draw anymore either. Looks like it’ll take 2 in the special next year. Good to know people with points!

From: Inshart
21-Feb-19
Hell yes, with 2 points, we are in!

21-Feb-19
NaDa....I can't believe we didn't even draw our second choice that had leftover tags in July last year!

From: Elk369
21-Feb-19
No draw with 2 in General.

From: JL
21-Feb-19
Well....I didn't have a dog in the hunt, but I hear the elk taste better in MT. :)

From: hardcore247
21-Feb-19
For the guys looking for left over tags or cant believe they didn't draw a tag as a second choice when there were leftovers last year. You need to wait until the resident draw is over. Most if not all of the leftover tags come from the under subscribed resident tag allocations. Very few if any non resident tag allocations are under subscribed.

What I want to know is who are the 3 guys that drew the general tag with 12 points and who are the other 3 that drew it with 11.

From: ohiohunter
21-Feb-19
Drew Gen with 3pts

From: Mossyhorn
21-Feb-19
Drew special general with 1.66 avg between three of us.

From: Steve H.
21-Feb-19
I applied for an area that took between ~7 points last year and it went for TEN points this year. To me that suggests people bailing and cashing in points because of the higher price of points and licenses.

From: Shrewski
21-Feb-19
Or it became a darling of one of the draw services or was featured on a TV show.

I drew a cow tag I was after.

From: cnelk
21-Feb-19
That’s what I call a Wyoming feeding frenzy

Crazy point creep

21-Feb-19
hardcore247, could it be that those guys with 12 and 11 points donated their points on a group app with guys with fewer points so the average would have been much lower?

13 years waiting! Pinch me. Any guys with some knowledge to share on Elk unit 31? I’m so excited!! Planning on bow hunting a couple weeks before the rifle opens, then close the deal with the rifle if it comes to that. LETS GO!!

From: Scoot

No love for me.

From: Corn bore

Crave that's a good one there. I donated again.

General Tag here w/3 points

From: timberline53

53-9 is mine!

From: Bake
21-Feb-19
Nope. A little surprised really

From: Zim
21-Feb-19
No love in the random. Next is AZ & UT with 5% & 25% chances. If still zip will try to burn my OR points, where I have a great chance with 20. Congrats to those who drew.

21-Feb-19
Bam, finally...Regular draw with 12 points! Pretty spot on with odds!

From: hardcore247
21-Feb-19
cheesehead,

I think if that were the case the group would have shown up where there average was at. I averaged in with some friends last year and I am pretty sure we showed up at the point level of our average.

21-Feb-19
Nada

From: YZF-88
21-Feb-19
Wow, major point creep in the units I looked at. Yet again it's pretty much a point per year. Just ridiculous.

21-Feb-19
Nope ??

From: KSBOW
21-Feb-19
Still can't believe first time apply for Elk threw name in pot for Wyoming so why not with myself and a buddy and we drew. OTC Colorado will have to wait for another year, thanks Wyoming can't wait for September. This has been a dream since I started watching elk hunting videos, now its happening!!!

From: Bowfreak
21-Feb-19
I'm in. Draw odds played out almost identical to what I hoped for. There were guys with the same amount of points as I had that didn't draw so even though the odds were in my favor....I still needed a little luck.

From: LKH
21-Feb-19
4 of us put in. I had 4 and son had 6. Brother and his daughter had zero. The 2.5 gave us a near guarantee of drawing GEN and we did.

Giving up my points enabled me to hunt a couple weeks with my family while I still can. I'll be 72 this fall and have taken as big a bull as I ever will. The family hunt is a lot of fun and this will be the first year in a while we've had anything except cow tags.

I bet if you could talk to the 11 and 12 point guys they all have a story about why the hunt they are doing means more to them than a special unit.

That's awesome Larry...

Nuttin' for my group, but nothing expected with 1% random odds.

From: INbowdude

I'm elk hunting in 38 this fall! Yeah!

From: greg simon

General tags for myself and two of my brothers!

From: Native Okie
21-Feb-19
Out. My pool went up 2pts in special and down 2 in regular. Crazy...

From: Griz34
21-Feb-19
I applied for a unit that was 100% last year in the special draw and didn't draw. According to GoHunt I have 20% chance of drawing in Arizona. If I strike out there I'll just have to burn my Wyoming antelope points!

From: JTreeman
21-Feb-19
Nothing for me....

There were 12 less Regular tags issued this year from last year

From: BULELK1
22-Feb-19
Well, it is great to get on here this early AM and see the happy crowd!

The Dad & son from Louisiana did draw with their 3 points. While on the phone-speaker going helping them apply for the very first time in Wyoming, I told Don & Don jr., that I wasn't going to join the Group appl and have it average 2 instead of 3 with them both having 3 pts.

2 points was more in the 50/50 chance (2018) than 3 being prolly a lock to draw.

I didn't draw Gen elk with 0 points going in...………..'cheapie fee' of course

I did draw my RP cow/calf though so it will be just fine in my Wyoming Bow Elk camp this September!

So sorry for those that didn't hit the tag they wanted, dang it.

Good luck, Robb

Looks like Timberline53 and me are going to make an expedition to 53. Made it with 8 pts . Any thoughts on should I haul my mules from Va. or try to get hauled in by someone else? Been hunting Co. for over 20 years OTC last 7 with mules. Makes it nice in a lot of ways. Really looking froward to this chance to hunt this area.

From: Lost Arra
22-Feb-19
Struck out. I didn't expect a bull tag but I thought full price cow as second choice should be a winner. I thought wrong.

From: nmwapiti
22-Feb-19
Drew special general with 1. Meet ya there Bowboy :)

22-Feb-19
I just checked again. I still didn’t draw.

From: cnelk

From: Trial153

No tag for me.

22-Feb-19
It's going to be a great first hunt of my retirement!

From: KHNC
22-Feb-19
Nothing for me , zero points special General. Was hoping for a random gen tag.

From: Beendare
22-Feb-19
Unsuccessful in the special draw for a Gen tag and I had one PP.

I think I saw it was 97% last year in that draw with one PP, this year 17%

From: dickbird
22-Feb-19
Gen-lite tag with 2 pts here.

From: WapitiBob
22-Feb-19
"I think I saw it was 97% last year in that draw with one PP, this year 17%"

your odds were about 45% in the random

From: cnelk
22-Feb-19
"your odds were about 45% in the random"

Or 55% to get kicked in the nuts

22-Feb-19
Wyoming is prejudice against me, and didn't like my money I tried to give them for a lowly RP cow/calf tag. Unbelievable!
