The turkey hunt gets me thru till the results come out.
Plus, it's my crazy busy time at work.
So I stay pretty occupied.

I've been shooting my bow a lot, but I'm starting to feel a little joint point in my right shoulder, so the bow shooting might take a back seat for a bit.

I hadn't given much thought about the draws this year until today. I try to go on one quality hunt each year (e.g. Canada, South Dakota, Argentina) and doing the research for these trips pretty much satisfies my impatience waiting on draw results. 2017 will be a strange year as the likelihood of me drawing a Utah tag is basically zero. Also, this will be the first time, since 2009, that I won't hunt antelope in Wyoming.

This is a first for me where I've got basically zero chance of drawing. Combine the slim odds and the various financial expenses I'm already committing myself to this year, and I'm actually dreading charge on my credit card! Which is exactly why if I'm ever going to draw a Utah sheep, moose, or Henry's deer tag it's going to be this year! Oh well... Money happens, right?

i doubt i have much of a shot either but we did put in for a party hunt so maybe???? at least would love a good archery deer hunt, as for elk i have my spot and hopefully my same stubborn ass bull and just need to go to his hiding spot opening day this year and not chase him all the way there while he laughs at me doing so like last year.

BIG BULL = 1
ME = 0

I have a next to 0 chance of drawing any tag that would be considered enviable, but that doesn't even matter to me. I get just as excited buying an OTC spike tag as I do hunting Deer, Antlerless Elk, or any other Big Game animal for that matter.

For me it's all about the time in the woods with family and friends, pursuing our quarry. I just can't stop thinking about it.

I don't care about the draws when I don't have any points.
Its also easy to forget about the draws when this is the best time of year to fish.

After classes end in 2 weeks, I'll be passing the time chasing turkeys and hopefully going after some crawfish. By the time that's over, I'll be scouting for some spike elk.

It is a long time between the app period and letting us know, but UT does let us know sooner than some other states. CO, WY, NV, KS, ID, all post at the same time or after Utah.....

I don't spend too much time wondering about the wait. There are too many great things to do in the Spring.

True they post the results later in the year, but I know for at least Wyoming the results that come out in June/July have an application deadline at the end of May. So the actual delay isn't too bad. The WY elk application deadline is also only like a month or so before the draw results too IIRC.
