Uggg!

I'm in that club also. I drew my LE elk tag with max points, I started when they started the point system and it still took me 9 years to draw. Considering that I was in the top point holder draw every year.

Then my LE deer tag, once I got to the top I didn't draw the first year that I was there but had to wait another year to draw.

Maybe when everyone dies they should have their family put in the obituary he died with XX points for XXXX unit. Too bad he was so set in his ways! LOL

Point jumping is a real thing. But no one is going to know when all those points will be useless.

I'm building deer points but I doubt I'll ever cash in on them. Mostly to irritate those that worry about it.

I jump ship every year, depending on what I already have in the works and then I factor my family in to it. Last year I applied for archery LE elk since I wanted to muzzy deer hunt my first year of dedicated. Filled the muzzy tag, so deer isn’t so much as a priority to me this year, applied for LE muzzy elk and drew it. I rarely apply for the same LE OIL or antlerless seasons/units every year. I apply for what works with my schedule and what I figure I can draw that particular year.

Remember that I started into the elk pool when they first started dishing out points and had to wait until I had drawn the elk tag before I could start putting in for the deer tag and then had to wait another 15 or so years before I drew that tag.

Now for you, there are plenty of units that you could draw a elk tag with your 25 or so points isn't there?

Vanilla's looking for a "moonshot" with 25 points if he isn't drawing an LE elk tag now. Do you put in for other states too, or are you all in for UT?

I wish I had 25 elk points in the draw! I only had 22, which seems close to 25, but not when you consider how long itís going to take to clear out all those people ahead of me.

I have started to play the Wyoming antelope game a little bit. Not sure how often Iíll try to do that with the increased tag cost a couple years ago. I will do the doe/dawn tags though. No other out of state apps for me other than that. At least not yet.
