I had max points for cow moose and drew that tag in 2017--I got lucky drawing that even with max points. I'll be putting in for the ewe--lady luck be with me!

You really think a NR is going to pay $1000 to shoot a BH ewe when they can pay $700 for a cow moose?

Well it's actually one of the cheapest ewe tags available. It'll certainly have more applicants than the moose tag

For myself being a non resident I would not go for a ewe sheep tag for a meat hunt. It would be a cow moose all the way.

When there is no real trophy other than the meat why pay more?

A trophy means different things to different people. Whether you get a ram or a ewe tag, both are a chance to hunt wild sheep--and that is something very few hunters get to do these days. It's a lot cheaper to go find a moose hunt opportunity OTC than it is to get any native sheep tag in North America.

The difference between hunting a ram and a ewe is really only about placing the cross hairs on a different body in the group.

I don’t see it as meat hunt, it’s a chance to chase sheep. An opportunity I’ll probably never have in my lifetime with a tag in hand.

I know what you mean but if you want to chase sheep grab a camera and go chase sheep, no tag required

With that logic, why hunt at all? Just go buy some local, organic, sustainably raised beef/pork/etc and head into the woods with your camera? Save the hunting costs entirely, and chase whatever you want whenever you want with no need to agonize over point systems vs random or credit card charges in early May.

Because I like eating moose, deer, elk, rabbits, grouse, ducks, geese, and whatever else I have a tag for.
