I call those tags "Sucker Tags". Very low success rate unless you have a pack of K-9s and access to the woods before the closure date. It can be done, but those that have tagged out on this hunt without dogs, are lucky or, smarter than your average Bear hunter.Go down to your local Walmart and buy one OTC when they go on sale later this month?
I've thought about that too. I've been applying for the multi season tag on a unit that only gives out I think 6 permits. I'm in it this long, I just as well stick it out until I draw the permit I want. I could mess up the odds by applying for a fall tag on the same unit, and actually draw it. I'm not jumping ship now. To close to the shore.You might want to look into putting in for a different unit.
I know its just weird! I drew a Bear Archery only tag back in 96 (I think) First time applying and drew. Back then, you could hunt the spring and fall seasons. Bait and dogs were allowed for pursuing. Of course you couldn't run dogs over your bait, but why would you anyway?I feel your pain, 14 is a good number but just wait till you are up there with me with 17 unsuccessful emails. I've waited longer to draw a dang bear tag than it took to draw 2 LE elk tags!
You drew the Multi Season with 13???:shock::shock: If I were you, buy a Lotto ticket, head to Wendover, and whatever else you can think of because the luck of the Irish is with you.Manti North. I know the area well and have hunted it for deer and elk quite a bit but never for bear. It is the premium so I have the entire year to hunt.
I know of two others that drew this tag this year, both had 17 points!! There are definitely more than a few bears there. A tip, stick to the deepest, darkest, nastiest canyons you can find!Manti North. I know the area well and have hunted it for deer and elk quite a bit but never for bear.

I hear you loud and clear! I'll never draw another LE Elk tag again in this state. I'll let the young guns go for it and I'll sit back and watch. So I'm leaving the point system and saving the application fee for fuel. Thanks Biden for jumping the fuel cost! I might be able to buy enough gas to push a piss ants scooter around a Cheerio.Did not draw one myself. Lucky I have one in the Pope and Young already. Age will catch up with me before I draw again.
