Love it Nick!

What time are these card charges hitting for you? Curious if it's still happening or already done?

From: Norseman
01-Mar-19
Pretty much done. But it may be later for your CC company to post pending or credit limit drops

From: JDECK

Hit for two NR elk tags!

Burned my 13 Elk points last year and didn't think lightning could strike twice. Thank god for Loyalty and hunter Ed points. Don't know which unit but all good.

Oh hell, George!

Some of you may have WAAAAAY too much confidence in the AZ system. Don't start loading the truck yet just because of a CC hit. Year before last, I applied for archery elk and pronghorn point only. My CC was hit for the elk tag amount. When the portal information was uploaded, my portal said unsuccessfull for elk and successful for a rifle pronghorn hunt. Again, I put in for archery elk, and pronghorn point only. Final result from AZ Game and Fish was NO tag, and lame excuse that the computer had a glitch.

From: JRABQ

Congrats Jesse! Nothing for me yet.

Congrats to those that drew! There looks to be quite a few already. I'll check later tonight. Very excited to get out of work and get home..... TODDY

From: Scoot

No hit. Once again pain, misery, and dejection

From: trperk1

Nothing yet....killing me. Should have cashed in on a rifle hunt.

From: BGbasbhat
01-Mar-19
Hope you're wrong pirogue! I remember when that happened though...but i'm putting on my rose-colored glasses at the moment for my rut bull tag.....I'll be p*ssing and moaning if you're right! Let's hope technology has advanced!

From: pav

NADA....honestly wasn't expecting a hit. Congrats to those successful in the draw!

Proud owner of 1 more lope and elk point. Congrats fellas!

From: Whip

It seems that point creep crept up on me again. AZ hasn't taken any of my money today.

From: Trial153

Stugots for me

From: CK
01-Mar-19
Looks like I drew early archery elk and archery antelope. I'm still skeptical that this is a glitch.

01-Mar-19
Have to think positive...I did look again just to make sure I hadn't been hallucinating...Lol

From: AZBUGLER
01-Mar-19
Of you’re hit, you have a tag. Not sure what happened with Pirogue but I’ve never heard of that happening to anyone else. I have no doubts it did, but extremely unlikely. Congrats Bowsiters! Don’t hesitate to look me up when you’re in town.

From: Scar Finga
01-Mar-19
Congratulations to those that dew a tag! Nothing here for us.... WAHHHH!

From: Vids
01-Mar-19
It's obvious there is a glitch in the system, my CC hasn't been hit yet.

Up to 7 points now....

From: Native Okie
01-Mar-19
No way! I just checked my CC......got the big middle finger from AZ again!

Congrats to you sumbeaches who drew!

From: KB

I’m hit. Likely November, but still long odds. I’ll take it!

From: DPowers

I am headed to az!!

From: PeteD

Hmmmm, I’m still holding out hope!

From: pirogue
02-Mar-19
AZbugler, I would have thought it was also unlikely, but it definitely happened.

From: sukie
02-Mar-19
One of those guys, early archery elk w/7 pts. Either 3a-c or 3b! Gonna pick up a lottery ticket tomorrow. Second AZ tag in 6 years.

From: AZBUGLER
02-Mar-19
DPowers, awesome! Congratulations!

From: TD
02-Mar-19
Congrats Ike!

Not lookin' good here, I keep telling myself I really didn't want a tag this year anyway.... then I get a slap in the back of the head from the guy on my other shoulder who's sayin' "yeah, sure.... what did you put in for then dum bass...."

It's always enjoyable to get on these type threads in the early AM and see the happy and sad posts.

Happy for all that drew--------->

Good luck, Robb

Zero for me. Always next time!

19 points for me, I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel

From: bowhunter1
02-Mar-19
16 points ,,,now it's going to be a big decision what to do in the future ,,,do I wait for 5 to 6 more years now for unit 9 ,, or do I still put in for 3a ,I am 52 this year ,,,

From: Rockbass
02-Mar-19
Only 15 points for me and I thought I had a good chance this year but no such deal. I will have to enjoy the Arizona Elk hunt through the excellent stories and photographs of fellow bowsiters once again.

From: trperk1
02-Mar-19
bowhunter1 - I'm ahead of you in age (54) and behind you in points (12). Nonetheless, struggling with the same internal debate. I had a plan until AZ put the cap on NR. Now, how long will I hold on? Should I cash in on mid tier unit (hunted 5B S previously and was great) or just rifle hunt? Should I keep going and bow hunt AZ for retirement gift?? Tough decisions

From: Lee
02-Mar-19
You guys with 15 points are you just applying for the BEST units in the state and that’s why you aren’t drawing? Seems incredible that you still have 5 or 6 more years to go. I’ve drawn 3 tags in 18 years...

From: KHunter
02-Mar-19
bowhunter1,

you may be dreaming to think you have a shot at 9 in 5-6 years if at 16 points today. Presume you have studied the points to draw trend for nonres. you may be 12 years away if that soon.

From: AZBUGLER
02-Mar-19
Bowhunter1, easy choice if it were me. I’d go hunting! You may have 1-2 years wait for a 3c tag too. Have you considered unit 1 also?

02-Mar-19
For you dreamers holding out for the big stuff, I had 21 points going into the draw, applied for unit 9 archery and I got............................................0

Dreamers!

Hit for $650... its been a long time since last chasing elk in AZ. :^)

From: 2 Points
03-Mar-19
All I got was a 9 tag!!! Yeah Babyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

03-Mar-19
^^^ Just a 9 tag huh?!? Lol...Way to go G!

From: StickFlicker
03-Mar-19
I didn't get any hits, but if I IDENTIFY as a hunter with an elk tag, the government run Game & Fish has to allow me to hunt them, right? Otherwise, they're violating my rights.

From: AZBUGLER
03-Mar-19
Garth congrats!

From: HEAD DOCTOR
03-Mar-19
My hunting partner just called me this afternoon. We were charged Saturday night for a cow elk tag for the 5th year in a row. I can NOT believe it. At our age... 70's we can not afford to wait for a Bull tag. We would rather be hunting elk than roasting in the desert.

From: AZBUGLER
04-Mar-19
Congratulations Dennis!

From: elk assasin
04-Mar-19
well if they are finished with the draw I have made another donation and acquired another point will turn 70 this fall starting to wonder if I am going to pass on before I hunt elk in Arizona. A NR with 15 points now

From: 2 Points
04-Mar-19
assassin, I sent you a PM

04-Mar-19
No luck for me but that's okay, I already drew Wyoming.

I'll still make use of my AZ license and go out and chase some deer next December...

Now I'll just be applying for NM long shots and I'll have to decide if I want to cash in Colorado points and try to draw or just buy a preference point this year...

From: bartl17
04-Mar-19
Card was hit on the 2nd. Looks like I am going to either unit 9 or 5bs for early archery. Totally shocked. Only 7 points. I will be 63 years old. Probably my last chance for elk in Arizona.

From: TODDY
05-Mar-19
Well I waited until last night to check and seemed to have struck out. Now onto "Plan B". Congrats to those that drew! TODDY

From: 2 Points

bartl17, yell if you need any pointers in those units.

From: bigbuck
06-Mar-19
Well another point for me ,was really hoping this year as the years are also creeping up on me ,I know how you feel elk assassin!!!!!

From: PECO
06-Mar-19
This time of year always amazes me. You guys are getting credit card hits and I haven't even applied in Colorado yet.

From: creed
06-Mar-19
The hits are still happening. My wife and her friend got a hit tonight on the cc for $270. I was shocked!

From: TODDY
06-Mar-19
Well thanks creed, you made me look again, only to be rejected a second time! Lol! Any idea when the portal will be updated? TODDY

Tomorrow...

From: bowbender77
07-Mar-19
WOW ! My wife just found out that she drew on a very late charge from Game & Fish. Happy wife....happy life!

07-Mar-19
Any NR out there that drew unit 9 with 21 points or more?

From: Gus
08-Mar-19
waiting to find out which unit. I thought we were supposed to find out today. Anyone know when they will update us on this.

From: 'Ike'
08-Mar-19
Tonight at 1700! :-) Plus, you already know you drew the 'Mid-winter' hunt!!! Lol...Yes, I've been talking to Matt!!!

From: Matt
08-Mar-19
Sucks for guys who drew the mid-winter hunts, burning all those points to chase bulls after their antlers have dropped....

From: dmandoes
08-Mar-19
Dinkshooter; Chubbytuna on MM had 23 points to get unit 9 archery.

08-Mar-19
Up now
