From today to June 10th, it is really crazy for me. Although I hunt mule deer at least 30 days per year, I really never know where or when I’m hunting until about now. As I write this post, Utah’s hitting credit cards, Nevada will likely post Friday, Colorado is revamping her deer draw to post by May 30th, the Idaho deadline is June 5th, and of course Arizona’s is June 10th! A whole winter and spring of planning will likely come down to the next few weeks.
As as outfitter, I also know my phone’s going to blow up as each state posts her draws and thousands of hunters find out they didn’t get their tag. Statisitically speaking, there is a good chance that you and me will be in that crowd—oh how the truth hurts!
If you need help planning your fall hunts, draw tag or no draw tag, there is still time to get your money’s worth out of a Huntin’ Fool Membership for 2014. I outlined their service earlier this spring here: The New Huntin’ Fool
If you’re still on the fence, The Huntin’ Fool is sweetening the pot with a chance to win a Browning X-Bolt Rifle for joining before May 31st. If you’re already a member, just refer a friend and you’ll be entered for the fantastic Henry Mountains Mule Deer Tag and your buddy will have a chance at the rifle. How’s that for a win-win?
There are some great benefits of becoming a member:
- In-Depth State-by-State Hunt Analysis
- Personal Access to Hunt Consultants (Premium Membership)
- Up-to-Date Hunt Area Statistics
- Members Only Forum Access
- Reduced Price Hunts & Landowner Tags
- Application Services
- Historical Harvest Data
- Member-only Hunt Raffles
- Endorsed Outfitters
As a testament to the benefits, all my spring issues of The Huntin’ Fool are already dog-eared, drawn on, and picked over. I think anyone who wants an upper hand on Western hunting areas will find a Huntin’ Fool membership well worth it.
You can join at the banner link in this blog post or at the banner link upper right side of the blog (check out that 250″ AZ buck, eh!)
If you’re a phone call guy like me, give The Huntin’ Fool a call at 435 865 1020. Tell them Robby sent you. Best of luck in the draws.
If you feel like chatting, let us all know in the comments section below which states, species, and weapons you applied for so far. I’ll go first:
All mule deer for me: Utah muzzleloader, Nevada muzzleloader, Wyoming rifle, Colorado point—Idaho and Arizona will depend on the other states’ draws.
