Where in southeastern Utah?? When would the hunt be? I might be able to schedule that to coincide with a cast/blast I want to do down there..... How much would the tag be?? It might be worth it to me to get some venison in the freezer this year but I'd need more info.
Right now the tags are saying the hunt will go until 10-19, we are trying to get it extended. But with the migration starting and such I am not sure for how long it would be extended for. The tags will be for our fields by Orangeville. This will not be a guided hunt but an assisted hunt. Either I will be there or my brother to help and assist you so you will know which fields you will be able to hunt in. For Fat Bass $10.00 will not be enough for me to let people on our property. I could even trade hunt for a hunt. (goose, ducks, pheasants, etc...)
I would think that I should be able to sale a voucher for somewhere between $300-$500. It is just depending on how bad someone would like some meat this winter. Someone make me a reasonable offer and see what happens. If anyone is interested they can reach me on my cell 801-635-6249.
I'm with Dkhntrdstn on this one. I would be willing to go maybe 50 bucks, if it was rifle. I have already shot a deer this year with the bow. I haven't taken anything with a rifle for quite a while and this would be the perfect oppurtunity to break it out again.
Maybe you should put an ad up on the board at a country club somewhere...seems a little steep, but those fellers seem to have plenty of money. For what it's worth, I know of some cow tags that went for about what you are asking.
I've seen guys listing deer-doe/elk-cow tags on ksl.com before. It seemed like last year I saw a guy selling cow elk shoots for like $300-600.
I know you are trying to make a dollar or two - and that is cool. I totally respect that. But one thing you might consider is to find a kid or two in your area who NEED to go hunting. Give him/her the tag and take him/her out for a good day and harvest a deer. I helped a kid like that out when I lived in Nebraska. Then I ended up moving. That kid needed some more days out hunting. I could talk with him in ways different than his Dad could (I was very good friends with his Dad and he appreciated the help with his boy very much.) I look back and wish I could have helped the kid more before I moved. A good kid but he needed a solid adult to look up to. You might could do that with a couple of the tags. Just a thought.
Another thought is to find a family down that way, of one of the lost miners. See if they need some venison. Not much money in either idea, but the payment would be far more.
Yikes... yeah, that just put me out of the bidding. Sorry man... thats a nice offer on the tag but the price is way out of my budget. I agree, lower price, yeah, I'd jump on it to go take one with a bow but not for even $150. Sorry, I'm a cheapskate.
I was planning on just giving the tags away anyways, I just wanted to see if anyone was interested in purchasing the tag first. I guess greed was getting to me.
I did get a bunch of tags to where just family members can shoot and we are planning on donating the venison to needy families.
Riverrat if I remember right you are just getting into Bow hunting, is this correct? If so I would not have a problem with giving you a tag, if I have any left after giving them to kids I know who have yet to kill a first animal. Fat bass since you will be down there hunting and still would be interested in a doe tag, I will hand one to you. I am not for someone shooting them with hand guns though, we have high dollar sprinkling system in the fields and I would be to scared that one of the shots from the pistol will miss the doe and hit a line. But I am sure you are sure of your shot before you take it and nothing will happen. I should have an answer of how many tags I have left after my brother hands some out, later this week and will let who ever is still interested contact me on first come first served.
Wow Humpy, thats a really nice offer of you. Yeah, I'm just getting started.... my first year actually hunting big game with any weapon.... so I'm a total newbie. I agree with the giving them to kids first..... I can always just wait till next year and get in the draw for an archery tag. I certainly won't be picky either this year in a field or next year where ever. Again, thanks a bunch for the offer... thats really nice. Let me know when you've given away as many as you can and if you have any left over, I'd like to come out and pay you a visit. I would be willing to trade hunts with you also if thats what you'd like to do. :wink:
Hey Humpy - if you can, get a few pictures of one or two of the kids with their first deer and post them up here. We'd love to share that moment. Nothing better than a kid with his/her first deer! A doe or fork horn buck might as well be a 200" monster.
