Last year I harvested 4 deer all mule deer.
This year I bought an A and B tag, registered for two surplus doe tags, an put in for deer damage tag.
Last year The L-G-D, and I got damage tags and we could and did shoot two each.
SOOO. 
I could end up with 6 deer, and the GD could have 4.
The Granddaughter and I donated 7 deer to other hunters or family's that wanted them.
I don't feel I'm a glutton, maybe for punishment, they are all deer that need to be harvested and they go to people that want deer but can't get out and get there own.
The surplus and damage tags are on a draw but we have never NOT gotten them when we put in.
I don't care to hunt elk so I did not put in for surplus elk tags but could.

Ok.

this year put in very early for non-resident antelope tag. didn't get.
even doe/fawn bonus tags are sold out in the draw.  no left over tags either.

might be eating just whitetail burgers!

We don't find out on antelope till later. We are all put in for buck and doe antelope.
Can't even put in for Swan or crane yet.

I got an antelope tag but was unsuccessful at getting an elk tag. 

I'll get a general deer tag and hopefully I won't have to buy much cow meat. Cow meat is ok but I prefer game meat every time. 
I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

My drawing results:

Not Successful

2022 deer permit

210-50 was your 1st choice

2022 elk permit

217-10 was your 1st choice

2022 moose license

327-50 was your 1st choice

2022 sheep license

203-20 was your 1st choice

2022 elk b license

282-00 was your 1st choice


All that's left is antelope to hope for.   CryCryCryCryCryCryCryCryCryCryCry


49 years of applying and still no sheep permit

Lizard. 

That didn't turn out very good. Can you get leftover or general tags?

 I can shoot a buck whitetail or in some areas a buck mule deer, as well as an antlered bull elk off my general license.

Oh, I'm not much interested in shooting a doe deer or doe antelope.  But I would have taken a tag for a cow elk.

Antlers really don't taste great.
Got all the horns I want, and a big buck doesn't taste nearly as good as a 2 year old doe.

No left over tags to draw for, or walk in on.

No Maine moose his year.

still got a 'chance' on Pennsylvania Elk.  Small herd and long draw chance.  But the herd does have a world record bull in it!!!
