    Default Extra drawing tags and lottery!

    I received an email this morning regarding the issue of giving out more drawing tags for various hunts! Apparently fish and game did a lottery where some lucky folks will get their choice of any drawing tag! I won, and picked Tok Sheep, and my son picked Delta Bison! We must be living right!

    I, however, pulled a coveted narwhal tag! Heck yes, I'm going to have a swimming unicorn in my trophy room by this time next year!

    So, just like all other sheep tags? lol! Great deal on the Narwhal tag, Brian! Shoulder mount? Glad to hear you got a Polar Bear tag! Good thing the ice cap is melting. Now you can just hunt them on the beach in summer! lol

    While gaining access to 'special' tags is a good April Fools day subject; my wife beat you all . . .

    Unbeknownst to me, she indicated on her Facebook page, that we were expecting -- which we are not. So all day I have been getting calls and texts from friends, family and business acquaintances congratulating me on the new addition. I had no idea what was going on at first, but after a few, I caught on.

    As the day is mostly over, I may have missed my chance to retaliate this year. I guess I should begin planning for next year...

    Ooooh, I dunno. Walking in after work carrying a new rifle purchased so that you can one day pass it on to the lil' bundle of joy would work....

    Lol almost Claude, but this sheep tag stipulates that residents that walked in can't be angry cause I saved up my money to use an airplane!

    Nope boyz, I drew the best one, I get to aerial spot, buzz walk in sheep hunters, run all the sheep over to the next mountain away from the walk-in hunters, land on the next ridge over from the sheep and then ride my Rokon up to the sheep, kill a ram and then pack the ram back to my Cub on the Rokon....... best tag I ever drew
