To whom it might concern the Virginia elk draw ends tomorrow.Last year was the first year they were hunted and 6 hunters were all successful.One bull weighed close to 900 lbs and scored close to 400.It’s a long shot but you never know.Good luck Lewis
Almost forgot about this. Figure cheap lottery ticket lol
finally a website that actually provides useful actionable info. Owe ya one.
Absolutely massive dead head was found in Va this year. I’ll try to find the pic….
Supposedly about 450”
Wow. That looks like a red stag not an elk dam. Now just need to draw the tag lol
KY and VA are growing some huge elk. The way VA works is there are no preference points. Every entry has the same chance every time. Pure chance.
The way it should be for such a small herd. And, that’s coming from a guy who’s never won anything in any raffle or draw.
Kentucky has always got my money. Now VA. But, one day I’m going to win something. I’ll take the shots on the gun raffles and such to hunt elk close to home. :^)
I put in this year, but it is a true lottery...I think the young man that killed that elk got the chance from his dad who won a bidding auction from RMEF and it cost more than my house....
You sound like you have the same luck as me. I hope one of us draws then lol
Me too. But, I’m rooting for me!!!!!!
However, if I draw Kentucky and VA, I’ll donate one of ‘em to you!!!!!! I’m a nice guy. And, I wouldn’t want to jinx myself. Elk hunting two states in one year, less then 2 hours from home, and less then 2 hours from one another would be more then I could process. :^)
How about this. If I draw both too, I will donate one to you then too.
No NR can apply
Sounds like a plan.
Thanks for the heads up Lewis! Just put in for my first elk lottery outside of Pa.............
Pretty easy! Anybody know when the deadline for Kentucky is?
KY deadline is April 30
Ok-thanks Shawn! Will have to check it out..................
Well someone has to draw. Best part is don't need a second morgtage to apply for it lol
Tried applying today. Could not locate where/how to apply on their website. It also kept locking up. Gave up.
It was really easy, but you need to have an account.

Only drawing 5 this year in VA. Still have a shot at KY and PA as well. I won't know what to do if I draw a tag close to home and don't have to spend all my time out west.
Only one NR tag if I read it correctly.
