    Congrats to all drawn .

    I can tell you from going with my daughter last year on her bull hunt it's an amazing experience. Which I may never draw a tag myself but I'm honestly content & blessed to have been there by her side .

    I also suggest to anyone drawn ... if there's anyway financially possible .... book with a guide / outfitter as soon as possible. Unless you happen to be local and have access to land with elk . Which I don't want to sound like I'm promoting any outfitter but just relaying that we went with LMO and she took a great bull and they treated us like family .

    It alleviates a bunch of worry on your part not to mention the aspect of taking care of the animal which can be a major undertaking on such huge critters in fairly rugged terrain . Which like most everyone when my daughter was drawn not necessarily the best timing financially for us with her college expenses but no doubt a hunt of a lifetime thats hard to overlook. So we did what we had to do to make it happen .. and glad we did .

    Again .. Congrats on a hunt of a lifetime in your near future .

    Major tip! That will be a hard tip to top for sure. Congrats to everyone that drew a tag this year and good luck on your hunts.

    I bet you apply next year!! There's no reason to give up. And why stoop to the level of a poacher? Its all for a chance. There's no guarantee.

    Does anyone know the true odds of winning this? Seven years in a row and no luck. Even when they started the " pick your weapon, pick your sex " I have picked cow bow and bull bow. Still nothing.

    They bought landowner tags. They were not drawn.

    Im getting tired of this, I think it should be resident only, Im tired of out of staters getting to hunt and I live here with elk in my yard and never get a chance.

    If it's one in 150 or something to draw a bull gun tag, you can't really say you're behind the eight ball until you've missed out 150 times. Even if the odds are 1-12 on cow bow, coming up blank for 12 years or more would not necessarily be a statistical anomaly.

    I don't get the sentiment on not taking a $10 chance. Somebody's going to win. Might as well be you.

    I also can report that people in elk country should be on the lookout for a Red S10 this season. It's certain to be blocking gates and creating havoc throughout Eastern Kentucky.

    12 year old daughter drew bull tag in 2012 then I drew bull tag next year, hunted both years with lmo, can't go wrong with those guys, they know where the elk are. both applied for cow tags this year, no tags drawn, may never get drawn again and ok with that, would like to see kdfw increase the number of youth tags, really only 10, can't see why that can't be 100 these
    children are the future of this sport.

    That's me. Honestly Im very happy for the folks drawn and Im not one bit jealous of the folks drawn multiple times and I in no way think its rigged but I do get tired of that "sorry" message.

    Good luck to you folks that got drawn. :) Someone take pity on me and trade me some elk meat :eek:

    It was proven to be rigged last year.

    I totally agree with having more kid tags. I dont have any kids who put in for it yet but i would love to see more kid tags regardless of me and mine. But normally kids dont bring the major funds they want so i guess thats why i dunno. Maybe they are just slow. But you would think for every 2 adult tags they would allow at leadt 1 kid tag.
