Default Poll - cow moose or ewe bighorn?

The rules state that you can apply for one or the other, but not both. I'm curious as to how popular the new ewe hunt will be. Thoughts?

Personally, I'm more than happy to bail on my four cow moose points to have a shot at a ewe tag.

No doubt you won't be alone in swapping over to ewe.
I wish they would have forced people to choose and kept it a oil like they do for female mt goat & bison.
Over 4000 applicants and over 2000 points only for anterless moose last year. Ewe odds look to be similar to drawing a ram tag

I’ll be sticking to cow moose since I’m in the max points bracket.

However, something to consider, is over the last few years it’s shown with the cow moose how jumping in to a draw when points are first offered can be very beneficial in the long run. For that reason, I think you’ll see a mass exodus from the cow moose applications and into the ewes. Which I would assume in the long run, make the ewes a harder tag to draw than any of the moose tags are. Maybe this would be a great species to start moving towards a full random draw and offer no bonus or preference points of any kind for this hunt and make it 100% random and see how it works out. Especially since I highly doubt there will be large amounts of tags offered for this type of hunt.

Really? That blows. I guess they don’t want my extra $10 donation every year.

Ewe Bighorn all the way for me. Bye bye cow moose points.

Cow moose, up there in points and I consider them meat hunts and you get a lot more meat from a moose.
AF CYN and OriginalOscar like this.

Did anyone see the price of the tag yet? Would you pay $513 the same as a ram tag to hunt a ewe? Only ask because most other states price sheep tags equally.

Haven't seen the price yet, but I'd gladly pay it just to have the experience to hunt sheep. I started with Mountain Goat points in the OIAL pool so the reality is that I'll likely never draw a sheep tag in Utah. I know it's not the same as hunting a ram, but it would be worth it to me.
