jnd59 that sounds like a good plan. 5+ gets you into some very good areas.

Thanks Wytex. I'll probably want some pointers on combining low point mule deer with pronghorn. And birds. And trout.

We've got 'em. Most folks don't realize we have some great deer hunting on public land all over the state, not just the famed west side.
You'll need the days to get it done but it's doable.

My buddies and I will be going on our first out of state Pronghorn hunt in late september. I didn't know anything about western hunting or the draw process either. So I hit up the google machine and got after it. After all was said and done I was able to find several other forums largely dedicated to western hunting as well as numerous shows and websites. If you haven't already done so I would go to and watch or read everything you can from Randy Newberg. He pretty much lays it all out on the table in an easy to follow way. I followed some of his advice and by some major stroke of luck drew a top unit with NO points. is a great tool for dealing with the public/private land boundry issues you might run into out there. Also dig into the state game and fish websites. Many of them have hunt planners that help you deal with the mind numbing tag draw process. Each state is different and have different points systems...What it boils down to is they have lots of easy to access public land with lots of game. However that leads to lots of hunters so they have to control access and herd counts in a fairly creative fashion.
