been busy as heck with life and biz.... I recognize a few names from a few years ago but don't expect anyone really remembers me, I'm a phantom member I guess... lol

anyway, put my son and nephew in a separate group for X9A... really expect they'll get drawn this year and I get to be the guide... it should be a great time even though I'm not hunting. my son knows what he's doing pretty well but my nephew, my bro in law passed a way when he was young.... he doesn't get out much. I've been building points for him for a few years, he's busy with school and getting hitched (too young, but has the desires....) anyway, they should have enough points and I get to take them out. my kid has dropped a big cow elk in recent years so he's got experience and knows the game but my nephew... he's green.

I'm excited... I think they'll certainly be successful as they have a great guide (first timer.... lol) maybe not a great trophy but i'll push them to be patient.

just babbling on, I'm bored and looking forward to the draw results.

my other kid, the younger one is in the draw for round valley, hatchet guided him to his first CA traditional forkey a couple years ago...

Good luck to you guys curtmann!  How many points do they all have?  With the tag reductions up there, it may take a good handful of points to get a 9A tag this year, and for the following years as well.

We've got 6 points going into this draw and I saw there are only something like 270 tags for X9-A. Next year there will probably be only 75 or so. It just keeps getting better all the time! Good luck to all who have put in for this zone. Seems like rather slim odds.

they got it! 4.5 point average between the 2 of them... I'm so freaking jazzed right now and I'm not even hunting....

 

hatchet.... I remember you cracking on my boy... SHOOT THAT DEER.... he was a little hesitant but got er' done...

this is the older boy this time in X9A

the younger one did not get round valley... he'll  be 16 next year so I think that was his last chance, as a junior.... never give up!

I heard the rationale for the drastic reduction in tags was winter kill but I talked to a few locals that said they're not buying it, more likely due to politics.  They all said that the population was super healthy.  I was up there a couple weeks ago and saw quite a few live ones and saw more than I cared to see splattered on the highway.  Good luck!


Good lookin' people, they got no spine.
