Well, it’s that time of year again! Application time! I personally have a hard time keeping up with all of my duties at the office, but I try to dedicate a few hours each day to evaluate where & what I am going to apply for. The questions are endless… Should I buy points in AZ because of the drought & access issues? Should I hold off on Colorado because the Mule Deer haven’t fully recovered? Is Utah a big bull state anymore? What new seasons overlap my OTC hunts?
|Lee Murphy Hunting Consulting & Western Hunting Custom Application Service Manager
Honestly, I can’t keep up with it all and that’s why we brought Lee Murphy on board. Lee is one of the best hunters I know, but you probably have never heard of him. With that said, we don’t just look at the obvious units for our Western Hunting Custom Application Service Members
. We evaluate a number of different elements, which include:
- The best trophy units
- New under the radar hunts
- Bonus & Preference Points
- Your schedule
- Your budget
- Guided or UnGuided
- Private or Public Area
- Antler Growth
- & more
We spend much of our time evaluating where our Application Service Members
will have the best opportunity to kill the animal they want, on a year-to-year basis. Antler growth and drought conditions are two MAJOR issues that we extensively evaluate. There is some good information out there, but there is also a lot of bogus myths spread around the hunting community every year.
Example! At first glance many would tell you to buy points in Arizona this year for elk, but we know better. You can’t generally predict weather, but we stay on top of what has taken place, so that our Western Hunting Custom Application Service Members
have the best chance to draw and kill the trophy animals they have been waiting for.
WE WATCH THE WEATHER AND DROUGHT CONDITIONS, UNLIKE ANY OTHER APPLICATION SERVICE!
Feel free to contact Lee at 877.842.1258 ext#3 if you have any questions.
