    Hunter Ed in April, still waiting for bonus point

    We went a few weeks ago and he said my son will get the bonus point for the draw but it will not show until after the draw. He reiterated multiple times that just because it does not show on the portal does not mean it is not there.

    Hypothetical draw question

    Game and Fish said it doesn’t matter if it is turned in or not. If they draw they are not eligible for a tag transfer. I asked these questions when I transferred the first tag to my son to prepare for future years and other kids that would be hunting soon. I asked about point guard and veterans donation and Game and Fish said it does not matter. If they are drawn they cannot receive a transfer. if you follow the theory above your kid will be SOL.

    Hypothetical draw question

    Maybe if you get the right GF employee. My son has had two transferred tags and both times they checked to make sure he was not drawn. I also specifically asked about this and they said it was not allowed but there may be some employees that do not check.

    Hypothetical draw question

    No, you cannot pass down a tag to a child that was drawn. When you go to the Game and Fish Office to transfer the tag that is one of the first things they ask. If they drew a tag they cannot take a transfer.

    Hunter Education Field Day?

    My son just went last week to Ben Avery. They held four courses and they sold out quick. Just keep checking the site, the courses pop up randomly. There still has not been an announcement that it is required and the instructor last week said they have a lot of catching up to do.

    Pressure washing skull

    It probably could be done but some areas would be tough to get everything out. I have done probably 20+ skulls and they are tough even when they are not boiled long enough. The Dawn and baking soda helps get the grease out too. Some people use OxiClean as well.

    Pressure washing skull

    You have to boil it first. Pressure washing alone will not get everything off of the skull. Lots of videos on YouTube and it is pretty easy. I picked up a frier at Cabelas and a tub big enough for an elk at CalRanch.

    RV Awning replacement

    It is really easy to do yourself. I just did mine a few weeks ago and it took about an hour. Under $200 for a 17’ awning. Plenty of videos on YouTube.
