    Or maybe more appropriately: Who would like to do what, in 2018?

    For the first time since I started my second career I can honestly say I am at a loss on deciding what to do and where to go next fall. Got some bonus points for a few species in two or three states but a person cannot count on getting drawn for any of those tags. I also have some PPs for several species in a couple states and may try for a tag but have some time to make that decision.

    So, besides having an interest in what adventures others are planning for next fall, I have ulterior motives. If something sounds interesting I may look into it! FM

    Going to try my best to get back out to South Dakota for an East River archery hunt in 2018.(still have to talk my wife into that). My guys out there said that their fish & game dept have been talking recently about changing it from basically over the counter for non resident archery tags, to a preference point draw system.

  4. I will be going where the draw takes me. Hoping I will pull an archery elk tag in New Mexico since I haven't been yet. Still don't have enough points for Nevada, Utah, Zona, or Wyoming (at least for a good unit).

    If all else fails I will be back in Colorado on a guaranteed draw unit. I stay away from Idaho/Montana, don't want to deal with Grizz while being solo.

    Also have Texas lined up for a mixed bag centered around hogs, hopefully with barberry sheep involved.

    More than likely back to South Dakota to hunt pheasants with both of my boys and our new German Shorthair. If we can finish all the bison meat from the one I shot last month, I’ll probably head back west to shoot another. The meat is that good.

    Spring black bear hunt in Alaska. Plus I'd like to pull together something for the fall but it will have to be September or late November/December and only a long weekend. Kind of stumped, but my available window and vacation days are limited.
