    Talking Sheep Permit Arrived Today

    Man, I love getting that yellow card in the mail from F&G! It's official, so now I need to start shooting my bow every day and getting confident out to at least 50 (maybe 60?) yards. I've only got a long 4 day weekend to do this hunt, so my expectations for success aren't really high, but at least it's an excuse to head into the mountains in October, a time of year when most are packing it in for the season.

    Has anyone else received their golden ticket yet?

    You dirty dog! I'm stuck in sweltering Vegas for another week. I will have to tell the wife "not" to throw away any mail till I get home, goat permit should be in if your sheep is.

    P.S. 11:20PM right now and it's 92* outside.

    Dang now I gotta run into Wasilla and check the mail! I sure have been looking forward to holding that tag in my hand! I still check the permit lookup frequently just to make sure it still says "you have won DS126".

    I'm guessing I should be getting mine any time now as well since I got Kodiak goat. What area you hunting and when you going?

    You drew a coveted sheep permit and you only have 4 days to devote to the hunt? Isn't that about as bad as the ones who draw and never hunt? Why did you apply if you knew you didn't have the time to seriously hunt the season/permit?

    Yes indeed, I also received mine yesterday. DM812, I'm more than half way there.

    I think he drew a late season archery sheep tag. Not eactly "coveted" as It is a pretty high draw percent and low success. If I am right Brian's tag has ~26% drawing odds and only a 2% ram success rate (1% for ewes)! But at least he has the opportunity to hunt in Oct!

    Appreciate the criticism, marten, but like LuJon pointed out, this isn't exactly a coveted tag. They usually give out 100 of these tags and very rarely are five sheep taken. The season is only 10 days long, so I think 4 days is a pretty decent amount of time to devote to it. Besides, this is plenty of time to seriously hunt this permit. Between my own hunts and others that I have gone along on in 14C, it has never taken me more than a day to get on legal rams. Since this is an any sheep hunt, it'll be even easier to find a legal sheep if the weather cooperates. If it doesn't, I'm not going to feel bad about it.

    Matt, I drew south road system. I plan to go around the end of September, beginning of October. Still back and forth on taking the bow or the rifle, as I have never taken a goat before. I'd like to get one under my belt and then I can play around with the stick and string.

    Only the permits for the winter drawing have been announced. The spring drawing results will likely be posted around the 2nd week of July. If you applied in November for a sheep or goat tag, here is a link to the results page.
