As for cool tags I’ve drawn in the past, I drew a Manti rifle general deer tag this year. I think that’s kind of cool.
Can I ask what you plan to do with those "once in a lifetime" LE elk points? I've been hanging on to mine for the day that my kid will appreciate the hunt. I'm getting close to waiting 5 years to get back in line.

24 points for moose
8 points buck antelope
2 points LE Deer
4 points cow elk
4 points doe antelope
3 points doe deer
6 points cow moose
2 points swan
4 points bear
4 points cougar

Drew a bear tag 6 years ago with 2 points. really lucky I think. Got to hunt with my dad before he passed. It was both our first bear hunt!

Drew a limited entry Elk 6 years ago with 13 points. Got lucky, should have taken about 18.

I cashed in a bunch of points on anterless elk and doe pronghorn last year and 13 points for a limited entry muzzleloader elk tag this year so my point totals are pretty low:
- 1 general deer
- 1 antlerless elk
- 3 bison
- 1 dedicated hunter
- 5 Wyoming pronghorn

Yes, you may ask! I have been taking pipe dream shots at hunting premium units in the rut. I hunted muzzleloader deer on the Blue Mountain in 2002, and that made me dream of elk hunting that unit during the rut. Iíve always been 2-3 points behind being able to draw that one, and have known it was a pipe dream almost that whole time, but set my sights and have stuck with it. Iím not as intent on hunting the San Juan rifle as I used to be for a few reasons, but it is still a dream. I have an open mind towards a multi-season tag on a unit closer to home now, but Iím probably two, maybe hunting seasons away from being in a situation where Iíd realistically have time to hunt a multi-season tag effectively. If I have that tag, I want to make it worth while. My present, but temporary situation wonít let me be in the field as much as I would want. I could do a full season, just not a full season for multiple different weapons, so I stick with the pipe dream rut hunts on premium units for now.

If I knew 20 years ago what I know today, Iíd have done things differently. If I could go back Iíd have drawn a Wasatch muzzy tag 15 years ago, killed the best bull I could find, and after waiting period and getting back into the elk pool, be 10 points into another muzzy tag and hunting again in the next couple years. But life doesnít give you re-dos on stuff like this, so here we are!

Ultimately, this is my plan. Unless I just get dumb lucky the next couple years, when the time is right Iíll take those ďonce in a lifetime LE elk pointsĒ and pull the trigger on a tag and go have a ďonce in a lifetime heck of a good timeĒ on an elk hunt. Hopefully that ends with killing a really nice bull. And if I get dumb lucky and draw one of these pipe dreams out there before I can spend the time on a multi-season hunt, the plan will still be the same. Go have a great time with family and friends. Hopefully kill a giant.

OIAL Moose - 14 (I make sure to donate my $10 yearly to this fund)
LE Elk - 8 Points
LE Bear - 4 points
Antlerless Elk - 5 points
General Season Deer - 3 points
Dedicated Hunter - 2 points
Wyoming deer - 6 points

Feel like I've got a lot of points, but realize I am way off for pretty much everything. Well unless I want to cash in my antlerless points one of these years. I am hopeful that 3 deer preference points will actually draw my unit next year.

Here are the points standings for our group. Mine are the top row. Not updated since draw results came out so add 1 to almost every field.

The one that bothers me the most is the 4 points for antlerless elk.
