Title: Who's hunting what this year?
Post by: mnbogboy on June 03, 2021, 12:05:15 PM
June 17 is the drawing for Wyoming deer and antelope tags. My applications are in and hoping for good luck. I applied for a couple of areas where I've held tags in the past. Actually have camping spots in mind and a good idea where to start.

I'm in for draw on antelope, mule deer, moose and elk. Hopefully get drawn for something this year. I'm in the highest "pool" to be drawn from in everything.

I'm in for Moose, then just a Whitetail and grouse over the counter.

Was drawn for bull elk in unit 5a here in AZ.  Drew a tag same unit 2 years ago but a nasty snowstorm shut all roads down for the first 2 days and only had 1 day to hunt an area we hadn't scouted due to limited access and FR closed.  Saw 2 while looking for a place to settle into but nothing once settled in.

In the rifle deer draw, will put in for antelope when the draw opens.

Deer should be a sure thing and I get antelope every other year and this should be the "get it" year. We'll see.

As to @jvw2008 might as well wish for a world record if you're wishing that small.

1.087" is the current record if you're wishing for a record go < 1"

Good luck to all in their drawings and good luck to Dave & Jerry in your quest for a world record. I'm pretty sure Dave will get there first, if he hasn't already  been there. 1 inch or 1 moa?

Whitetails in LA and TN.  Will hunt my home ground hard this year.  We have already started the prep.  Feral hogs and coyotes will be tune-up targets of opportunity.

This may be the smartest guy on the forum LOL

Current IBS World records

1.087" LG @ 1000 5 shot group
.336" LG @ 600 5 shot group
.311" HG @ 600 5 shot group

I shot a .865" 600 yd 5 shot group (.144 MOA) at Elbow Lake 2 years ago and can't really remember my best 1000 yd 5 shot group, low 3" or high 2" IIRC

Rob Unerlt from WI shot a .772" 5 shot @ 600 last weekend in Humboldt SD

Personally I think it will take an advance in equipment, tuning and/or a pile of luck to break any of these records.

And a really calm day!!

I'll be concentrating on elk general archery season starting last weekend in August, deer, and bear will also be on the menu at the same time, but putting my energy into elk.
I get a second season for deer in November when they are in the rut.
Wife gets a general deer tag for western Oregon for a month also.
Got a buddy I met on AS that's coming up for opening weekend of rifle and last week of season if hes not successfull on the opener.

I need to take time off work to get out and hunt.
I've had a knee operation just before Xmas and only just feeling like if I walked in I could get out again.

Hope you heal up well before hunting seasons begin.

It's here the rut is pretty much finished but we can hunt All year now so I'll get out in a couple of weeks as life is starting to slow down again.
I took a trip out yesterday to scout around and find a spot I'll be able to sit and wait, and if I get one I can get them vehicle close so not too much carrying.

Just put in for the deer draw here in AZ.  Mule and Coues.  In it more for the hunt then the kill.  Time spent with the old man doing something new to both of us is most important.

You guys will have a great time making great memories.
