tag numbers are up considerably in two of the units I apply for. That kinda SUCKS.

Look at the bright side, in a couple years you can be guaranteed to harvest a nice young raghorn for good eating if you're lucky to beat the crowd to the bull. Makes it fun!

A bad day hunting is better than a good day doing just about anything else...

Funny that the regs just came out today, but there are 2 OTC elk hunts that already started 3 days ago...

I have been putting in for that tag for 15 years and I finally thought I had enough bonus points to get drawn for it and they remove the hunt! Sucks doesn't even begin to express my disappointment

Why would they pull that hunt after 15+ years?  Are the antelope not faring well down there, or are they becoming monster trophies?  What is your theory?

In all fairness, those have been 365 day hunts since inception several years ago. Anyone following the OTC hunts are well aware of the dates.
To many a city man there comes a time when the great town wearies him. He hates its sights and smells and clangor. Every duty is a task and every caller is a bore. There come visions of green fields and far-rolling hills, of tall forests and cool, swift flowing streams. He yearns for the thrill of the chase, for the keen-eyed silent stalking; or, rod in hand, he would seek that mysterious pool where the father of all trout lurks for his lure. - Horace Kephart

Sorry but you are wrong. The two hunts that started on Jan 1st are not open 365 days. They are only for 92 days. They close on. March 31st. If you had been following the OTC hunts you would know this.

The legal wildlife changes, but that OTC hunt runs the entire year. From any elk, Jan 1-March 31, then picks up again on April 1 -July 31 for bull, then Aug 1 thru the end of the year for any elk. There is no break in the season, only any elk to bull back to any elk.
