The permit drawings are for special hunts in select areas throughout the state. It is a way to keep some control over the harvest of certain species or genders of animals. Sheep, bear, moose and goats are the main targets of the drawings. If you want to meat hunt for a cow moose in unit 14 then a drawing is the only way to do that. No over the counter cow tags like there are doe tags in the states.

There are coveted areas for sheep and moose that get thousands of applications each year. Some guys apply for years to get a 14C sheep tag. Other get drawn for a Fort Rich archery moose tag every 4 to 5 years. Lots of folks think the system is not fair since it does not build up points for years that you apply but don't get drawn like it works in some western states for trophy deer areas.

TMA sheep permit w/ 14C as my second choice (party permit with the old man). Maybe a goat hunt. I got a Lost Lake goat 10 years ago and it was a fun hunt.

Can't eat horns, so I am thinking about a cow moose hunt during the spring draw. However the odds are really low, but I could be one of the lucky ones.

Ray, those cow tags keep eluding me. they are usually my top choice for moose in the spring draw with an upper Ship Creek (any moose) and a Twentymile (any bull) as the other two. I just love sheep hunting though, the country is just so pretty.
