Not This Year

Postby zeek from coon creek » Fri May 13, 2016 5:38 pm

I just checked the online results and once again I didn't get drawn for a Kentucky Elk tag. This is the 3rd year I've put in. This drawing is not like any other I've ever took part in in that there are no preference points given so that the longer you put in the greater your chances of being drawn become. Someone who has never put in before has just as good a chance as someone who has been putting in for years. Oh well, the money goes to a really good cause and who knows? Maybe I'll get drawn before I get too old to go hunt.

I feel for ya! I too lost the draw! No elk no deer tag either - off to hunt turkey in the fall and back to the fly rod and the trout streams till next year unless I can get a private land tag......

Well, it was not meant to be once again. I just checked the website and I didn't draw a tag for the Kentucky elk season. 4 years of putting in and counting.

Sounds like my annual donations to the Ohio Fish & Game Dept. I buy the tags and license, then maybe stomp in the woods once with my flintlock. Turkey season is almost over and I haven't been out yet. I should make more effort but killing something isn't important to me any more. I do have my memories and that's good enough. :D And my money goes to a good cause.
