APPLICATION STRATEGY 2019: Montana Elk - posted 1 week ago

If you return a drawn NR Elk combo license because you didn't get drawn for a limited entry permit besides the 80% refund do you get any used preference points back or earn a preference point for that year as if you were not selected for a NR combo license?

APPLICATION STRATEGY 2019: Arizona Elk - posted 2 months ago

@ Jason K. It's my understanding that the cost is the same and if you draw a cow tag you burn your bonus points. the only exception are the very limited mostly "any elk" OTC non-permit tags they offer, which are basically for killing elk in places the state doesn't want them. That is still like the same cost but you won't burn bonus points on them since you are getting them outside the draw. Those hunts have very low success rates and some of the seasons are really weird like spring or summer dates.

@ Gary H. MSRP for the elk target is $219.99, so I would say it is definitely priced correctly. They should sell a ton considering it is like $1250 cheaper than their full size elk target and is even cheaper than just the vitals insert for the full size target. BTW there is no "h" in Rinehart.

Wyoming bowhunter starts hunting ethics nonprofit - posted 2 months ago

I'm honestly just shocked by this.. it's just nutty. So he's mad that after buying his $47 OTC trophy mule deer tag he had to share federal land with a group of hard-charging non-residents that waited 5+ years and paid more into WY wildlife in one hunt than he likely will in his lifetime of deer hunting WY?! I'm also taken back that he sells a backcountry big game hunting fitness program and then is offended when he sees guys in the backcountry.

"An experience Shaul had hunting in the fall of 2017 first sprung the idea of Mountain Pursuit. He was in the Wyoming Range — a popular area to pursue trophy mule deer — and was several miles from the nearest trailhead in a remote basin when he came upon eight nonresident bowhunters.“I was just taken aback by that,” Shaul said. “I started thinking about nonresident license allocation.” Hunting for an existing nonprofit organization that would effectively represent his interests, Shaul said he couldn’t find one."

It pains me to see this guys name associated with Exo, Steve Speck and Mark Huelsing... hopefully this sentiment isn't shared with people who have previously promoted him.
