I'm thinking next Mon, Tues or Wed for results. Sound about right? This is my last attempt at an elk tag this year. I'm generally pretty optimistic with my western draws and continue to be disappointed in the results. So I'm trying a new approach this time thinking there ain't a chance in h3ll of me drawing a tag hoping maybe that's all it takes. Lol! Good luck everyone that applied! TODDY

Next week

05-May-22
Come on Utah, you were good to me once let’s do it again! Good luck everyone.

From: Tilzbow

Utah results being released before NV’s application deadline of May 10 would be great but it’s probably not going to happen.

Hell, I just got a 2022 Bronco after 643 days of waiting so maybe this is the month I draw a premium non-resident tag.

From: BULELK1

Most every year it's right around Mothers Day wknd.

This year MDWnd is a wknd early.

See ya in September TODDY!!! haha

Good luck, Robb

From: Quinn @work
06-May-22
I always think there's no chance in hell I'll draw that way I'm not as disappointed.

From: nmwapiti

My last chance for a bull tag this year. Trying to cash in some points for a decent hunt.

Good luck everyone!

From: RIDGEMAN

I got an email from Utah with the draw results on May 12 last year.

After not drawing any random tag in 8 states since 2011 despite 15-25 points, I have become desensitized to draw results posting. LOL. It's not that I haven't drawn anything, but they have ALL been in preference based systems. That includes this year, where I'm burning my CO elk points. But surely I'll get a longshot hit again someday. Problem is now I'm 62 with declined fitness level. I don't even pay attention to results posting dates. Only reason I knew Utah is close was this thread. Good luck to all, because these days it takes a LOT. Sympathetic to entry level hunters.

guys on monster muleys are posting screenshots of current credit card charges. Looks like its happening

From: nmwapiti

Charge for buck deer just showed up.

From: Old Bow
12-May-22
It’s pretty fast so if it don’t happen within the next few hours it’s pretty much over ….?

From: nmwapiti
12-May-22
Think I got my elk tag too. Says buck, but it's $285. Elk amount.

12-May-22
Nice!

From: YZF-88
12-May-22
Just general deer for my kid and I. Bummed. All of my charges happen within an hour window…and that was a few hours ago.

12-May-22
Nada, all long shots as it was…Congrats guys!

From: Bowboy
12-May-22
Jason is was a mistake on the elk:)

From: Predeter

Nothing for me yet and I was banking on a Gen Deer tag. Fingers still crossed!

12-May-22
Not over until you get that Email! ;-)

From: Treeline
12-May-22
When will the emails go out?

From: DonVathome
12-May-22
Wow. $1,000 for elk. Not sure what is going to happen this fall. I drew WY sheep & bison. Drawing is great but 3 huge tags is something to think about. South slope mid rifle elk.

From: DonVathome
12-May-22
My sheep tag starts 10/1. This tag starts 10/8. I might be turning my tag in for no refund and get my points back. My first Utah tag. Fudge. There is no way I can do both hunts justice.

From: DonVathome
12-May-22
Unless I drew San Juan early rifle :) That was my second choice and highly unlikely, but I would be able to make that hunt happen.

12-May-22
Don such a shame your drawing so many hunts this year. Pretty bad luck so far.

Just received this text from my credit card company. Now what? I guess I’ll call UT and see what the issue is and have them fix it if possible. Anyone else have the charge declined before? I think maybe the card was replaced since application day.

From: DonVathome
13-May-22
Several years I had to change CC's - you can do it online, might be to late. Call UTAH asap. I THINK they give you a few days to pay. I have had bad years when I should have drawn and I have good years where i drew a lot. This is a good year - but also with my points it is getting "likely". I am really stuck on what to do. I got engaged and we are planning a wedding. If I drop $10k on 3 big hunts DIYI will have to say yes to pretty much anything my fiancée wants for the wedding. Her and I are paying for the wedding.

From what I read I can get a refund from Utah and keep my points - but not gain a point. Not gaining a point hurts - but with opening days 1 week apart and the beginning of the season being my best chances, I am really in a pickle. This is a GREAT problem to have so not complaining just thinking on the keyboard.

From: Predeter
13-May-22
Pending charge showed up this morning. Looks like my fall is back on track!

From: MQQSE
13-May-22
Sounds like I have until June 6 to pay for the declined charge. Someone in the household is getting an elk tag.

From: otcWill
13-May-22
I drew the random San Juan archery bull tag. Yes, I'll gladly change my handle.

Gonna be a helluva year

From: YZF-88
13-May-22
Don. If you turn it back in do you get a point for this year? I thought they changed it so you don’t because they are trying to get people to stop turning them in at the last second. Did I read right that you drew the Diamond Mtn tag…as a non-resident? If so….damn you have choices to make!

From: Beav
13-May-22
Will you lucky SOB!! Happy for you!!

From: Bowboy
13-May-22
Dang Will your having a great year of drawing tags

From: YZF-88
13-May-22
Congratulations Will. Can’t wait to hear about it!

From: Quinn @work
13-May-22
Wow Will! That’s awesome congrats. …….Even if you did just draw my tag. Now I don’t even have to check my card.

From: pav
13-May-22
Congrats Will! Absolutely going to be a helluva year!

From: Zim
13-May-22
Congrats to all you Bowsiters who drew. Hope you all have great experiences. Some sweet tags listed here.

From: otcWill
13-May-22
Apologies for the fake news. I checked last year's email by accident and it was Central mountain Nebo I drew. Still excited but not quite San Juan.

From: Scoot
13-May-22
HOLY SHIT Will!!! That's absolutely amazing news! Many congrats to you!

From: Wirehair
13-May-22
$2200.00 charge on my card. I’m dying to know what it is. Congrats fellas.

From: Treeline
13-May-22
Gonna have to change my handle to OTC Treeline...

Congratulations on a great tag Will!

From: Bowboy
13-May-22
I bet that $2200 is for a bison tag

From: Treeline
13-May-22
I have a set of $1 and -$1 charges on my card from Utah... No big hitters though? Not sure what that means, yet...

With 23 bison points, hopefully get that tag soon...

13-May-22
Tavis it sounds like the wanted to screw with you by showing you a charge then giving you the money back lol

From: Treeline
13-May-22
It definitely has me guessing!

From: Orion
13-May-22
Pending 1000 charge on my card Le Elk. Not sure if it's for me or one of my two kids. My kids only had a couple of bonus points as they are 13 and 14.

13-May-22
Nice, good to see they're still hitting some...

From: c3
13-May-22
Vernon Archery Deer for me this year. Hard to believe as it's only my second LE tag in the 37 years I've lived in Utah :)

Actually put in for it to just get out of the deer points game and back to elk, but now that I have that coming my way, I'm pretty excited to give it a go and I can focus on elk again next year.

Cheers, Pete

13-May-22
I have a $1000 charge for "UTAH BUCKS PERMIT Salt Lake City UT" What would that be?

13-May-22
Looks like a Limited entry elk charge. So either I drew the South Slope Diamond Mtn Archery with 10 points or my son drew Cache North Limited entry with 1 point... NR of course.

13-May-22
Way to go Pete...

From: Grasshopper
13-May-22
Had to cash in my 20 deer points before I die. Friday the 13th, ain't so scary anymore.

I drew south slope archery deer, mid august start. Norcal, If you need intelligence, lemme know. Time to get the truck and camper ready for a preliminary boots on ground fact finding mission.

Congrats Will, and all others.

After a crappy year last year with very few days afield, this year is looking better so far.

MQQSE, I had the archery tag last year for that hunt ,

From: Zim

Adam, How many points you have? I see it’s like 2% in the random. Good job.

From: MQQSE
13-May-22
Ken I must have had 13 or so since my first was the year we could all start applying for everything. I’ve drawn deer twice, bison once, antelope once and now elk in UT.

These long shot draws are the fun ones for sure.

From: pav
13-May-22
Nada...unsuccessful across the board. Already burned my LE elk (2010) and LE deer (2019) preference points in Utah...so all apps are 100% random draw going forward.

deserthunter, our emails went to spam (they always do), so you might check there. I guess I need to white-list [email protected] which is the sender's email address.

Checked spam and nothing. Still quite a few people on other forums that have not received emails either. As of this morning.

My son hasnt gotten a email yet, and the website doesnt show anything yet

From: KHunter
17-May-22
Don K, He can take comfort in knowing he did not draw if no credit card hit.

Or he can call and they will tell him the bad news over the phone. Or good news if he had a CC hit.
