Nada. Not surprised.

No go for me....yet again. I think this makes 22 years of applying for Idaho sheep.

Little brother drew his moose in SE Idaho. Guess I will be rifle bearer and on the butcher team.

I have high hopes for this hunt. A friend hunted there in 2014 and saw a lot of bulls and one really big one.

Here's a picture of some he passed on

It looks like a genes in the area are strong for single point brow tines.

I would agree that one was a shooter!

I had a friend in Alaska who shot a number of BIG (68" was his last) bulls but they were all double brow tines. Finding the complete package in one rack can be a challenge. This whole once in a lifetime adds even more pressure.

I appreciate that Akbob...but I am used to itlaugh

I put in for 23 hunts this year, and about as many last year and most other year since I was in my teens. I have only drawn that moose tag and one hard to get deer tag. I'll take what I can get without complaint...general deer and elk, plus some easy antelope draws...

I did finally draw a decent (~25% odds) caribou tag in Alaska this year, so I got that going for me.
