I will be applying for a Moose tag up here once again.. I have 2 different zones I like to hunt in. I was lucky enough to get one in 2009 and hopefully I can draw another one.

The hunt I've been targeting actually took more points to draw last year. I lost ground! So that is why I decided to cash on something before the COP&W moves the goalposts once again by changing the rules like AZ did last year. It's only a matter of time.


Same for Nevada where their house of cards will fall any year now. How many times can you square thousands of guys points until the greenhorns figure out it's a total waste of their money to buy in there from the ground floor? Lots of states out there will be moving to screw their past investors to chase new fresh money.

Default AZ Action

Got hit in AZ for an elk tag. So my CO plan is scrapped. Been a while since I've drawn a tag so early. Lots of points only now in other states, except for sheep.

After scouting the last two weekends in Iowa, I decided to burn my deer points there. I get two Illinois buck tags/year @ $26/each, but our public land sucks due to unrestricted NR quotas, so I'll bowhunt Iowa. So that makes two tags.

I drew a caribou tag was all. I'll have to go OTC for most of the others.

Hunterdave, Have you noticed the new lower NH moose quotas? Yikes, I am so glad I got lucky and drew in 2012. At these quotas I'd really have to question investing this year. Glad I don't have to decide. I bowed out of the NH game after my tag.

Still doing Maine, but this is my 18th year trying so at least I'm adding ten chances yearly now with their watered down NR system.

Yeah,I saw NH was offering something like 72 permits this year. I also bought a 10 chance in ME for zone 8. I have permission to hunt 120 acres near Moosehead lake. The odds are definitely not in my favor, but you never know. Good luck to you!
