MT draw complete for me. Anyone else?
« on: April 23, 2018, 08:23:49 PM »
I was successful for Big Game combo. Didnt draw my elk permit. Anyone else check their status? I am curious if there were will be any leftover Big Game or elk combos. Hope everyone gets their desired tag, although not probable.

I was unsuccessful.  I had about a 25% shot at my unit, so I wasn't fully expecting a slam dunk.


Congrats on your big game combo.  :upthumb:

 I drew the Unit 410-20 elk permit in my first ever year of putting in as a non-resident! My buddies in MT didnt believe me until I sent them a pic of my draw results...

I didnt draw my resident tag. FWP did a mock draw last week which in my opinion shouldnt have happened.  That couldve been my number, who knows? Thats the problem.  They as a government agency should have enough together they dont need to do a test draw. But thats just my opinion even with that small percentage chance with points still it kind of irks me. But hey just another part of elk hunting right?   Congrats to those who did draw though!!!

I was hoping you were going to snag that elusive tag this year!

I was fortunate enough to draw a general elk combo tag. This will be my first time hunting Montana and I am absolutely pumped about it.

Draw a non-resident general elk combo this year.  I have waiting and bought leftovers the last 3 years but last year there wasn't very many leftovers and I almost didn't get one.

Well ive got an extra Montana chip if anyone is in need.  And Dan yes, that elusive tag is so close I can almost tuck it in my wallet.  My points are accumulating so its only a matter of time. 

It is funny though how random it is.  The states best trophy area 270 in the Bitterroots is super super hard to draw and a coworkers nephew put in first time this year and BAM.

Didn't you guys have a hunter who drew bighorn sheep twice in your state?

Not that Im aware of. Moose sheep goat all have a 7 year layover for eligibility. Not sure what the supertag does if he drew that and hit the normal lottery maybe?  Peaked my interest though for sure.  Time to hit the research button!!!!
