Nov '18. Tags were a mix of Utah and WY.

He drew Utah Antelope as a youth his first year applying... I didn't realize it at the time of applying, but it was a TWO doe antelope hunt. I was shocked when two tags showed up in the mail. He filled both by noon opening day, it was fun.

It may be time for hunters to only be able to obtain one permit for each species. At least until everyone has had a chance to draw/buy something, then on X date allow an additional permit to be purchased, if any are available.

Just my take, but I don't think the OTC youth archery tags are a decent option for 90% + of the youth hunters. Archery is much too expensive and too specialized for most kids. These tags are great for archery hunting families, not so much for the masses.

It is only as expensive as you want to make it. Sure you can go out and drop $1000 on a bow and a dozen arrows but why?

Do you go out and buy a kid a $2,000 rifle when he starts hunting?

Granted when I first started bow hunting my bow was only around $10 at a yard sale, a nice Bear recurve. Then a dozen arrows and some Bear broad heads and I was off hunting. Flannel shirt, Levi's and all. No fancy camo but back there there wasn't any fancy camo we just wore what we had. You could go the the Army Surplus Store on State Street in Orem and pick up some army surplus camo for a few bucks

Anyone remember the boxes of cedar shaft arrows where you could buy arrows for around a quarter each?

No question.
My 2 boy's punched more tags before they where 18 than I have IN MY LIFE!

My heck, they killed 20 plus.
It was UNREAL!

Come on Critter- you're better than that response. Live in the now, not the days of remembrance. A 12 year old kid with a recurve......
Look at how few of those permits they sell, that right there tells you how they are not a viable option for most.

ABSOLUTELY.
My first recurve was a Bear.
Fact, I still shoot a Bear bow!

That was a kids dream store for accessories to go hunting with.

Yep, the kids now days want the latest bow that is on the market, they can't go hunting in a flannel shirt and Levi's but need the latest high dollar camo.

The point that I want to make if a kid wants to go hunting and has a little bit of support from his or hers parents they should be able to go.

Allieds was my little slice of Heaven.

If a kid wants to hunt but he/she is ‘too good’ to pick up an old recurve, then we don’t need that person in the mountains anyway.

Spent a lot of time in there as a teenager myself. I put a Browning Black Knight compound bow on layaway, it was $99 and I mowed lawns all summer to pay for it.
