Default Interesting draw hunts?

What's out there for interesting draw hunts? I'm thinking stuff like PA elk for $10 an application. Kentucky elk, Maine moose stuff like that? Things like state Park or national park type draws?

Anything that I can throw some money at every year and maybe draw a cool hunt someday?

I'm building points for antelope deer and elk in Wyoming and have been since 2015. But what about lesser known limited draw type stuff. Any interesting Bison draws out there? Antelope? Let's hear what you put in for? Or just hunts you know about/read about.

So far I've put in for Maine moose, Kentucky and Virginia elk, I'll put in for PA Elk later in the year, and then "controlled hunts" in Ohio... These are mostly on state parks and govt properties.

There is a Bison Hunt on the Elk Refuge in Jackson WY. Don’t know much about it other than it’s a winter hunt when the Bison come down to lower elevations.

Do you you have any Colorado Deer points?

My point strategy has always been to collect points in areas where I can draw the tag in a reasonable amount of time, usually less than 7 years. I like areas that are a target rich environment! Not necessarily giant trophy animals, but good representation of the animal and hopefully more than one opportunity.

Strongly suggest heading out West build a few points in CO, WY & AZ for real archery elk hunts rather than the pitiful odds KY, VA & PA offer. I don't even bother to throw my money away in those states. Myself I'm cashing 25 CO points for an elk tag this year, before they throw NR point holders under the bus.

All my points are in Wyoming. And I'm not looking to build points elsewhere.

Essentially I'm looking to waste money in unique draw hunts. With little to no hope of drawing. I'm fine with that. I'm building points and planning real hunts in Wyoming.

I'll take a look at that buffalo hunt, sounds like what I'm looking for.

Or draw hunts similar to what I put in for in Ohio. Each draw costs $3. Most of them are for single day hunts in state parks or govt owned property.

I'm sure other states have similar hunts.

In Ohio I've drawn a military base twice and a waterfowl preserve once. All were good, fun, single day hunts, with deer running everywhere.
