Like most of you, not many of us had much luck in the western big game draws this year. But even without a coveted tag in our pocket we know with a little extra effort during these summer scouting months we can lean the odds in our favor this September. Take advantage of these summer months to gain knowledge of units you can hunt with an over the counter tag. For many years we have had to find success in units where many other hunters hunt, and this means putting in more time and effort to punch tags on a regular basis. So gear up this summer and earn that buck/bull of a lifetime.
