2023 Out of State Hunts

Recommended Posts

I'm always tempted to get my Illinois license and do a little bow hunting when we go home over Thanksgiving. I always talk myself out of it though since I can't bring myself to not spend time with family that I only get to see a couple times a year. It does sting though when I see a field full of deer driving between family members. One of these days I might carve out a few hunts.

I'll be down in OBX in May and would love to take a day trip inland for a hog hunt. Was going to last year but the weather didn't cooperate so we ended up cancelling that and our inshore charter. The biggest challenge aside from actually connecting on a hog would be what to do with it. I'd love to do a whole hog roast, but it doesn't seem practical since we'd be in a resort microtel. I also don't love the idea of keeping it packed on ice in a cooler in the Carolinas for a week before I can get it into my home freezer. Based on that, we'd be looking to have the outfitter / lodge connect us with someone who can break it down, freeze it and ship it to us so that there isn't waste.

I can see the headline now.  Police called to resort due to wild party and pig roast.

You still going on epic out of state trips? I remember the stories on HB with the Zodiac!

My partner and I have four points for Iowa. 

I still do. 2022 was the 1st year I didn't , only cause my dog got sick so I didn't go. Had a good trip in 2020. 

 

I have 4 points for Iowa too. Got to hunt there 4 times. 1st(2005) year zone 5 took me one year to draw.

Applying to New Mexico for Oryx and muley tags. If I don't pull either of those, I might burn my Wyoming antelope points.

Of course, I'll  be making my 35th yearly donation to the Maine moose lottery. And the trek from Florida to deer camp in the Catskills for a month.

Good luck to all those entering the draws.

Still in the thinking stage. Buddy and I each have 5 Wyoming preference points and 4 mulie points. If his family health situation improves, we may use this year.  If things don't pan out, I'm thinking about a Idaho OTC liscence  hunt. I waited to long to start this. I'm 73 and those WY hills don't get any less steep with  each  passing year.
