WY unit 22, i can hunt unit 5 starting 10/1. Crazy excited. I also drew cow bison. This is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations Don!

Congratulations! Will be following your hunt! Hope you have a great one! That cow bison could be fun, too!

May have to bite the bullet and start trying to draw in 5.

I did not apply for sheep this year as I already had a couple of hunts. Probably a mistake, based on what Wyoming has done… I think I am at 23 points for sheep and 24 after I buy another point.

What about your moose license?

Cow bison will be a chore to get on but can be done. Hunt that as early as you can then as late as you can into Jan. when they move over to the NER.

Congratulations Don, you thought you'd draw a Moose tag. But you ended up with Sheep & Bison!!!!!!

From: DonVathome
03-May-22
No moose tag. Unit 22 sheep has exactly 1 NR tag. I had 22 points. Given the new 10% quota all it took was ONE of the 300 guys with more sheep points then me to apply and I would not have drawn. I figured for sure someone with more points would pick that hunt. I also think they might have not wanted to risk it and wen for unit 5. Odds are not out yet but I bet 5 jumped a lot. I drew and harvested a cow bison 7-8 years ago on the NER. After that I hunted cow elk on the NER every year except 2022 (did not draw access). I know things have got tougher and cow bison do not migrate on like before.

Any help anyone is willing to offer about finding sheep in unit 22, unit 5 outside wilderness and finding cow bison will be greatly appreciated.

I am DIY all the way.

RBHS has been my lifelong dream. I drew CO bow about 15 years ago and killed myself for 17 days. I misjudged yardage by a couple yards and grazed a 3/4 curl broomed ram just below his heart. He was ok. I was not.

This is very very likely my only other chance at a Rocky Bighorn in my lifetime. I would be lying if I said I am not choked up about this.

Congrats Don! Look forward to seeing your hunt here.

Don the odds are out now. You beat 1:5 odds to draw your ram tag.

From: greg simon

Maybe contact Nick Muche for some advice. Kidding!!! Good luck man!!!!!

Way to go Don...

Good deal, Don!

Go get 'em !!

From: DonVathome

1:5 for sheep is great but sill far from a sure thing. For more apps in my point pool then every before. I was VERY lucky no one else with more points applied!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am lucky/surprised. Still in shock.

Unit 5 cleared out all guys over 22 points except 1. Always new apps. What will drastically affect guys in my pool (23 points after todays draw) is how many guys drop out and if half the high point guys still just apply points every year. I did the math and used past data and figured I was sure to draw unit 5 by 2027.

Ironically I had better odds at my moose tag which I did not draw!!!!!!!!!!

From: DonVathome
03-May-22
I only had a 13% at cow bison and 20% at sheep. Lot's of luck this year. I also got engaged a couple weeks ago - so life is good!
