    What are the most coveted draw tags throughout the state?

    Goats
    sheep
    bear
    bison
    etc.

    Well, here is how I'd rank them:
    1 - Delta bison
    2. Tok/Delta Controled sheep
    3. Kodiak brown bear

    Everything else is gravey.

      Delta bison is #1 based on sheer applicant numbers and low draw odds. There are a lot of hunts I would way rather do, but it's certainly the most coveted by numbers.

      TMA sheep is probably the most coveted tag among mountain hunters.

      After that, there's lots of opinions.

        I'll put in my .02

        Chugach Sheep
        Unimak Bear
        Nunivak Ox

        Everyone wants a Delta Bison Tag. Have hunted it three times, dad twice and mom once. One of only a few wild bison hunts in the world, but its not that much fun to be honest.

        As an aside, Talking with my cousin Leif last week, and the TMA area has been really hit hard with the ice storm of last winter/spring. He says it is in as poor of shape as he's seen in a long time, and I doubt there is anyone who knows that country better.

              Any tag with my name on it. This year it's the early cow moose hunt up on the Steese with my sons. It starts next Friday. 2 of the 15 tags given belong to us. That equals a quality father and sons outing in my book with low outside hunter interference. Good luck to all.

                too much depends on the indidivual hunter....

                in a family that relies on the meat.. it could be an easy access cow moose hunt


                those that want a challenge and to "test" themselves probably a sheep hunt, or possibly a goat tag..


                then you got the folks that want trophies,


                then you got indidivuals like me who want that "last" animal on their bucket list (my case it is a caribou)


                to each 'is own choosing, and to each a hearty "Good Luck"

                  No goat tags are highly revered?

                    Depends on the person.. I'd love a Whidby Bay or Cape resurrection permit. But can't seem to get it.. As far as coveted tags... For me it's any sheep tag, goat tag, or any tag with my name on it.

                      I'd venture to say a Kenai goat tag is pretty revered. That said I squandered two of them in the last 2 years. May not ever get the chance again......
                      Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

                        I only want one for the wall and in 10yrs can't draw on my own. I did draw a tag with my dad on a party hunt about 5 yrs ago and that particular hunt still haunts me

                          Cecil Rhoades mountain goat is my most covered goat tag, still waiting to draw.

                            I knew a guy that drew that once. He ended up killing a dink by mistake. Story was that he had seen a big billy and started up after it. What he didn't know was there was a small one with him. When he got into range the smaller one stood up and thinking that was his goat he didn't look at it closely and just pulled up and shot it. I don't think it was much bigger than my yellow lab.......lol. Poor guy.......he was sick about it.

                            I also knew a guy that moved here from Utah and drew the Twin / Iceberg Lake area tag the first time he put in for it.....they were giving two out at the time. He had a plane and we flew into Iceberg. We saw 2 big billies on the lake but were gone by morning. We started hunting for them and the guy decided he didn't want to walk.... Needless to say no goat for that coveted tag either......

                              I sure as heck don't want to say it because everybody in the interwebs will be applying for it. Kodiak, Bison and Sheep tags figure prominently.
