Alright guys, the deadline has passed. So what hunts did you put in for this year? I have 12 NR elk points and I put in for the Wasatch late rifle hunt. The hunt dates are the exact same dates as our rifle season for whitetails back home, so if I draw I will miss my first home opening day in my 32 years of deer hunting.

I put in for Pauns deer, desert sheep with 11 points and I also put in for mountain goat, moose and cow bison. I figure I have as much chance as a fart in a wind storm but you never know

I'd miss deer season for any elk hunt *****!!! Especially one where you get to shoot at big Bulls haha

I'm in for cwmu deer and desert big horn. I'm on the waiting period for elk and am a dedicated hunter so I've got a tag for the next little while

GS Deer on the Manti South
LE Elk Manti South
Moose Point
Black Bear (multi-season)

I organize the entries for our entire party of 5 so our apps are very similar except I put the two youngsters in for LE Deer and RM Bighorn instead of LE Elk and Moose.

General Deer- Wasatch East any weapon (Lifetime License)
LE Elk- San Juan early rifle (18 points---pipe dream)
Bison- Book Cliffs hunters choice (5 points---even bigger pipe dream)
Bear- Fall Wasatch West (1 point)

Almost guaranteed to only have a deer tag, and then will likely buy a general elk tag as well. But if luck strikes, I'll take it!

DS Deer (4 Points) - Group of two 1. FL TL, Monroe, Dutton, Panguitch, Boulder

LE Bear (0 points) - Bonus Point

LE Deer (0 Points) - Group of two Paunsaugunt Rifle

LE Elk (7 points) - Book Cliffs Late Rifle (Switched form Monroe Early, decided Utah DWR needed $10 more dollars for a tag that I won't draw)

LE Pronghorn (5 points) - Nine Mile Myton Bench Rifle

OIL Moose (6 points) - North Slope Summit

OIL Mountain Goat (0 points) - Uintas Central

OIL Bison (0 points)- Book Cliffs

OIL Rocky BigHorn (6 points) - Book Cliffs

OIL Desert Bighorn (0 points)- San Rafael

Should draw GS Deer and gain a point, but all of the rest are shots in the dark.

General Deer - nothing, acquired a CWMU tag for this year
LE Elk - La Sal Muzzleloader
Mountain Goat - High Uintah's West
Bear - La Sal spot/stalk

I am really interested to see what type of change the magnified scope on muzzleloaders ruling will do to the draw odds. A good buddy of mine and I applied for the elk hunt together and we each will have 11 points for the drawing. Generally it has taken 8-9 points to draw the La Sal ml tag, I am hoping that the 2-3 bonus point buffer that we have will be enough! I can't wait for the end of May, and then hopefully a summer full of scouting trips!

Put the wife and I both in for General season deer on the cache as a group. should get that.

put us both in for the late rifle hunt on cache south as individuals. i have 1 elk point and she has 0 but if one of us draws, will just get spike tag for the other and make a good time out of it.

Book Cliffs Late elk with 1 point.

Preference point for general deer. My dad should be guaranteed a draw this year, and one tag is enough for us. We're hoping for Thousand lakes, but if he draws his second choice, it won't break my heart...

It's also our first year applying for OIAL tags. I'm in for a Desert bighorn tag with 0 points. I've calculated my odds of drawing as roughly 1 in 1500.

At this point, my dad is too old to make it to the top of any OIAL point pool, so he wasn't even going to bother trying for one. I told him I'd pay his app fee if he did, so he chose Bighorn Sheep on Antelope Island.

And in case you're wondering, I absolutely refuse to calculate his drawing odds. :mrgreen: I don't think I want to know how much of a chance my $10 bought him.
