    speedgoat, you should have already got your WY booklet. Elk deadline is the end of this month.

    Don't have it yet but I have until the middle of March to apply for antelope. At least that's how it usually is. If you have yours already I guess I better give them a call though.

    I have until April to apply for my elk & deer tags

    I got my WY booklet over a month ago. You can go to their website and download a copy. Check your dates again. I have them right in front of me. WY non resident deadline for elk is 1/31, for deer and antelope it is 3/15 and for sheep/goat/moose it is 2/28.

    You got your WY regs a month ago huh? Something is amiss with mine then. I should probably just download a copy rather than have them mail me one. Thanks for the heads up.

    I'm applying in CO for my elk and deer tags and the deadline there is usually the first part of April. I probably should have been more specific about that. I really don't need the booklet for those so much since I usually apply online for those tags.

    Take a class at a local college, basket weaving whatever. Use your CO address. Drag out that non-resident bs as long as possible. DO NOT SURRENDER YOUR LICENSE :D

    Yup. ;) We still have our place in Summit County and I'm out there on a regular basis.

    That's the main reason I didn't hunt deer locally here this season. I couldn't reconcile paying the high non-resident hunting license & deer tag fees for a local runt.

    In AZ you have to have passed a hunters cert course somewhere (CA is fine) before you can apply for and hunt big game. You also need to buy the NR Ariz license before you can apply. That's about $150 smackers, ouch! Additionally, if you want to take the voluntary AZ hunter's safety course, you get an extra point. I need to do that.

    Shit, I apply that 150 evey year for birds.

    I might apply for Kaibab this year. I think I'll draw it on my first go around just to piss you off.

    You are a total knucklehead to pay that license fee every year and not apply for big game. Once you have the license out of the way, you only need to pay $7.50 for an application. It pains me to think of all the bonus points you have missed out on chasing those stupid flying carp and not paying any attention to the real hunting AZ has to offer. It's only the finest in the country, duh. Call me Monday and I'll get you all dialed in. I need to help you screw your head on straight.

    Its only been 5 seasons or so. What am I gonna do if I get drawn? Then I gotta go kill one and clean it.

    I might apply for rifle tags. I'm not taking a week off of work to run around foreign land and try to stick one.

    Someone fill me in on AZ Elk! I think I am probably done with CO Wapati as the fees are too high. Plus you can drive to AZ.

    Dude, Brent are you kidding me. You draw an elk tag in AZ and I'm going too for sure. I'll beat down your freaking door just to go along. Maybe you don't realize the quality of elk in AZ. By far the best in the nation. A 320" bull is a monster in CO and most states, but a rat in AZ. It's the holy grail of elk hunting. If I draw a tag, I will do WHATEVER it takes to get there and give it my best. Plus, it's not like you'd be going in blind. Most of the units are only a 8hr or so drive so a couple weekend scouting trips is very possible. And a good buddy of mine owns a scouting service in AZ. For a few bucks he'll scout the area for you and give you maps, video, gps coords and all the info needed for a successful hunt. Seriously, if you already have a license there is no excuse.

    To think you could of had 5 bonus points just about makes me cry. There are several great archery units that you probably could have hunted already, or in maybe just another couple years. Dude, monster bulls charging in to the call during the rut. That's the biggest rush in bowhunting!
