For many, planning a hunt is a bittersweet endeavor. It is as much tedious and time-consuming as it is exciting and wrought with tradition. Despite the conflicting emotions, or perhaps in part because of them, we endure the process year after year in hopes of learning more about ourselves and returning with meat for our loved ones. Beginning this process, however, can be the most difficult step.
With countless tags to apply for across the Western United States, researching draw odds, conditions for antler development, wildfires, and a host of other factors that could impact the hunt, you’d have to quit your day job to keep up. To make things a little easier, we decided to do some of the leg work for you.
The Tagline is a down and dirty periodical segment that will track upcoming draw deadlines, associated costs, and resources to help guide you in the right direction. We hope you find this useful and, as always, don’t hesitate to contact us with ideas on how to improve it. Leave a comment down below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
