    I have thought and thought about the new ky elk draw. I think I won't enter us into the either sex archery. Here is why: tas i understand it, they pick which week you get. I want to hunt bulls during the rut. That's why I drive to Colorado. What's your thoughts? And if kdfwr doesn't pick which week you get in the archery either sex correct me please.

    Booney, you may be correct but that isn't the way I thought it was. In past years if you drew a bull archery tag you could hunt before the rifle season and then come back after the rifle season if you were unsuccessful.
    I guess if I drew a December only tag I just wouldn't go. But I guess the down side of that is I wouldn't be able to draw a tag for three years.
    And three years isn't three years, it's three hunting seasons. My son drew in 2016 so 2019 is three years, right. No, isn't right. He wasn't able to apply this year.

    Go to Colorado. If I was in better shape and had the money I would. With the way the drawing is here most people will die of old age before being drawn.

    2020 he's eligible to apply again. same with me a few years ago. you draw, then you can't apply for three seasons, nothing tricky about it.

    Nah no tricky here in that. Just that I personally notice locals usually get the archery cow tags if they are drawn at all. I don't want my hunt of a lifetime to be a December week of either sex hunting... that is all.

    I’d be tickled to death with a week of either sex elk hunting in December. Good times!!!

    I am asking ??
    Let say I entered the elk draw and won a Bull tag and suppose after I won a tag that I could not afford or was not unable to go.
    Could a person sell his tag or is it winner hunts only?

    it would be good if tags that couldn't be used, after drawn, could be donated to one of the organizations like make-a-wish, or disabled vets, etc. you would still sit out for three draws before you were eligible to apply again. I think there are states out west that do this.

    Ive been drawn 3 times and am noone special, makes me think it must be legit. I assume commissioner tags/ land owner tags have political favors but imo the draw is legit.

    Fellows here is something that I have heard very little about. Predator control who are they Coyotes, Bears and something Game and Fish probably won't admit to Cougars and some Bobcats. The bear can kill 70% of the calves a year so that doesn't leave very many more for coyotes and cougars to really put the hurting on the wildlife especially elk and deer. The bear killed better than 80% of the elk calves in the Smokies and you can't take them far enough away to keep them from coming back. So get a bear permit and Kill all the coyotes that you can kill whatever it takes to get their population DOWN. Easter Coyotes must have 85% killed out each year just to keep them LEVEL not growing. But remember that is Every Year ! Yep that is a reality check. So be careful and KILL The Snot Out of EM! Remember carry a shovel and ______!
