Thatís kinda painful to look through. Think Iíll give up on any kind of rifle pool and cash in on a Wasatch archery elk one of these years.

Who the heck would burn 8 bonus points for Wasatch West General Season Deer?

My favorite stat in there is the Book Cliffs roadless cow bison hunt.

13 resident tags
16 resident applicants

I never thought I'd see a OIAL hunt so easy to draw. Curious to see how many of those hunters tag out.

Well no wonder I didnt draw my antelope tag... They cut the permits in half this year on the unit!!! I thought I was a lock for a bonus permit... I called the Biologist before applying and he eluded to there being a slight increase in permits this year with the new antelope management plan. Would be nice to know the permit numbers before I applied for that hunt. Its like playing the game of darts blindfolded!!

If they don't tag out all they have to do is threaten a law suit or bitch enough and they'll get to hunt the unit again in 2021 on the same tag.

Or call the janitor in the SE region dwr office and ask if it would ok if they hunted the entire book cliffs unit instead. Just record the conversation and youíll be good to go.

Some of these new units they have every now and then can be good options to jump the wait line if you arenít scared to gamble. Seems like everyone waits to see what happens the first year before they jump in and apply. I bet next year the draw odds wonít be nearly that good, especially if the success rates are decent

The road less area is going to draw fewer hunters just because it is road less.

Not very many hunters are going to try and hump out a full grown bison out of those canyons. So unless you have a horse or hire a outfitter with horses it has very limited appeal.

Swap Mesa is a pretty chit hole and lots of dude hoof it into there every year... is the roadless area any worse than that?

Quite a bit.

That I know of the ones that are hunting Swap Mesa also have horses or they wait until there is snow on the ground to get the meat out.

The road less area you depend on only two things, your back or a horse.
