Sdot.What tags did everyone put in for this year?
If anyone is from Alaska (or hunts here) I can give locations for the ones we put in for, but as far as species go, we did our usual Dall's sheep, bison, caribou, and moose. We skipped on the Alaska elk tags this year (we have an archery elk hunt in New Mexico already planned this fall, assuming we draw), and you don't need draw tags to hunt deer where we'd go.
We don't have to buy tickets for special hunt raffles here in WA until July, but im gonna go for the 3 deer tag this year and I might also put in for the mountain goat hunt. Moose is kind of pointless because they only issue 2 tags for the entire state - I think almost 7000 people bought tickets for that raffle last year.
Regardless of whether or not I get drawn for those, ill get a deer, elk, bear and cougar tag like every other year. I want to make an effort to get a deer, elk and black bear this year. Then I'm going to California for turkey in the spring.
I've always wanted to hunt caribou, moose, dalls sheep and bison. Sounds fucking cool. Those are all expensive trips though.
