    Regs are out

    The managing for quality works yes. Is that the right thing to do is the real question. Most of our units are over hunted, but I see tags getting harder to get each year. It's a tough situation. I like the idea of keeping some units for quality and some units for opportunity.

    Unit 21 herd

    Be ready to shoot some coyotes. They are everywhere in that unit.

    Trail Cam BAN

    There is no good cutoff for this. Which season is the cut off? There are seasons year round. Deer, Elk, Sheep, Bear? I don't see a cutoff date as a reasonable alternative.

    Trail Cam BAN

    I realize that, I don't think I've even seen a tank even on the strip with more than 10-12 cameras on it. How often do you need to check them? Doesn't that defeat the purpose? It's not like all 10 guys are checking them daily. Even if they were, it's not rear round, probably right before or during the hunt. Don't you think waterholes get that much pressure from archery elk hunters anyways even if cameras were banned? A guy sitting the bank of the waterhole for the two week archery hunt puts more pressure on the game than 10 guys driving in for 10 minutes and checking the cam.

    Trail Cam BAN

    Yeah lets ban laser range finders, long range guns, wind meters, turrets, scopes, 4x4 trucks, utv's and compound bows. Be a real man and shoot them with a hand made bow and arrow with a rock on the end! ....it never ends

    Trail Cam BAN

    Prevents or alters how wildlife accesses water sources. One could argue cameras do not do this. There is no way even 50 cameras on a water hole change wildlife behavior. Cameras do nothing but good for the wildlife.

    Any tips for us newbies? Not sure what to use but might head that way tomorrow. Looking to get myself and my 9 year old on some fish.

    Elk draw website down

    Online app process is worse now than it was last year. Just have us sign to the portal and apply through there like every other state. Why are we typing all of our address, social, date of birth, everything in that the G&F already has? Why am I agreeing that I have a license when they are the regulating agency holding my license, they already know I have one and populated the number on the sheet? Why do I have to click the 3 boxes agreeing that I know my sportsmans ID? I'm tired of clicking on cars, street lights and storefronts. Why do I have to enter my residency time? Make us log into our account, select the hunts and pay for everything in one transaction, it's not that difficult.

    Technology and Animal Quality

    Exactly. Being in the unit is much more valuable information. How many times do you see the Fish and Game in the field? I never do. When a year and a half old 2 point mule deer is doing all the breeding you have an age class problem. Buck to doe ratio doesn't mean much when all the bucks die before they hit 2.5-3.5 years old.
