A big thank you to all of you who attended the Fundraiser. Another successful night that will fund the many projects that we will support.
If you are looking for inexpensive tags, a wolf tag in Idaho is only $31.75 each and you can buy several. Idaho estimated a peak of over 1500 of these darlings and has extended quotas and seasons again. Idaho has a lot of habitat, but it takes a lot of ungulates to feed this level of apex predators.
Big Game Draws -
Washington spring bear applications are due February 28th.
A lot of permits available and a great time to be outdoors. And, a chance to do a little about the predator problem we have here.
Wyoming applications for Moose, Sheep, and Mountain goat is March 2nd
Moose and Sheep have preference points, Goats do not. Wyoming gives 75% of the tags to the maximum preference point holders and 25% go in the random draw. The random draw does not care about the number of points, so everyone has a chance. The one thing to look into is whether the unit has a random draw. Data is on the Wyoming website.
Utah applications are due March 5th
Utah is a great state to apply. The license is only $65.00 and the application fee is $10.00 per species. They have points, but half the chances go to the random draw in any draw. You can apply for all species, but you can only draw one. That has (dumb as it is),
kept me from applying for the best elk tag in the state, which I points enough to draw. I wanted and drew the bison tag, and now I want a sheep tag. Utah offers both Rocky and Desert. So, if you are an optimist that thinks you will draw, the sequence of what draws first is important. They draw limited entry deer, then elk, then antelope, then the sheep, moose, mountain goat and bison, and last is the general season deer. So, if you draw a deer, elk, or antelope, there went your chance at a sheep, moose, goat or bison. But, then again, they have some of the best elk, and deer areas anywhere.
