    Thanks! Points will be banked for sure! That Dall hunt I mentioned yesterday is a lot more feasible now.

    It's at an oil refinery in my area. Will make life busy for a few years, but an ultimate improvement in the long run.

    I'll be hunting OTC elk in Colorado with my wife in September. This spring I may be going back to turkey hunt in Wisconsin. Outside of that I'll probably just be bowhunting Missouri like usual. There is a chance that I will buy Illinois tags too, just have to wait and see.

    Haven't decided if I want to jump into the game of points or just use that money for hunts.

    As far as tags go..

    Whitetail
    Ohio Whitetail
    Kentucky Whitetail
    Indiana Whitetail (Giving up on hunting PA)
    Would also like to try Nebraska but not sure if I'll have that kind of time.
    Iowa points

    Elk
    Hunting Colorado or Idaho
    Kentucky Draw
    PA points

    Any reason you only put in for a point in Maine rather then try to draw?

    I know right now I don't have the funds to take full advantage of a tag like that. So in the mean time Ill just add up the points until I know I will be able to afford the trip. Id hate to get drawn on something like that and not be able to go.

    I can totally understand that. if you decide to draw I have a ton of experience in all the western zones, mostly 7 and 8 . With the right info it's something you can do on your own easy enough if you have the time.

    Wow thanks. I have absolutely no experience what so ever in that neck of the woods or with moose for that matter. Im 38 and just now starting to be able to get out of TX and see what else is out there. Just wish I would have been able to start 10 yrs ago. Better late than never I guess.

    Mule deer in Nevada. Still want to have a couple of successful seasons before I pursue bigger game.
