    Quite the weekend for me! On our way to east Yellowstone for the weekend, I proposed to my girlfriend last Thursday night (she said yes ) and on Friday we arrived in Cody. We were at a brewery having some pizza and beers when I mentioned to her that the NV draw results should be up any moment but that I had less then a 1% chance on everything BUT.....you still never know. The results come out, I go directly to unsuccessful and find my name. It shows unsuccessful for deer, antelope, ram and then goes to the next name. I think to myself "There is NO freaking way I screwed up on my Elk app and forgot it." So I go to successful and some how, some way, it shows my name with a 72L antlered elk tag next to it!!!!!!! Unbelievable!! I hunted the Jarbidge 2 years ago for mule deer and will be headed back this November for elk! I can't wait for the adventure!! Engaged to my best friend, drew a NV Elk tag, and spent the weekend in the Tetons, Yellowstone, and Bighorn Canyon country. Some of the best days of my life!

    I'm glad some other hunttalkers drew some tags!! Hopefully there will be some write ups with pics from you guys this fall!! Good luck all! Enjoy the journey.

    Drew a archery cow elk tag 113. Never hunted the area, never hunted in August and have only harvested a Javelina with a bow. So lots of first for me should be an exciting hunt. I can't wait to try my hand at big game with a bow. If anyone has any pointers on 113 I sure would appreciate it.

    WOW BlakeA! You should buy some lottery tickets buddy....congrats!!! Jarbidge is amazing country, good luck. My daughter drew a deer tag (her 1st!) and I drew a cow AND bull tag. All in 161-164. It's going to be a fun season. Congrats to all and good hunting!

    I got lucky and drew a mule deer tag the very first year applying! Really excited for October. I'll be heading to north central Nevada (6 series). I have to thank Mr Newberg, he's a big reason I decided to start applying for Nevada.

    Congrats! Can't wait to see the pics.
    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

    That’s awesome Dan. Gongratulations again. I think my chances of drawing that tag are getting pretty high, something like <.02% this year.

    that's exactly what my odds were, .02 of a single percent according to go hunt odds!!!figured I didn't have a chance,but got lucky on this tag draw and cashed in on a decent ram of the area,,they say there are bigger ones in there,,but I decided ,bird in hand is better than 2 in the bush,,,eyeballed him for 15 minutes,trying to judge him up as a shooter or not.decided to take him.

    he lost a bit of score from his excess brooming of the tips though,I thought he was approx. in the upper 150 range as I was scoping him and looking at his age rings through the spotter.even though it was the opening day,,I already had several days of scouting done with no sightings,so it was a tough decision whether to pull the trigger or not.

    I know im done for Nevada califonia bighorn sheep now for 10 years,,but the way I read the rules,it appears that I can still be in the running for Nevada desert sheep?does anybody know if that is correct for sure ? ya never know what 2018 will bring,,I was honestly just hoping for a Nevada deer tag that after 7 years still have not drawn yet,,who would have fathem that Id draw a 1 in 5000+ tag,,,looking forward to the 2018 draw!!
