After Many many years of putting in for a River brakes tag and having the Max bonus points I Finally got a rifle bull tag
It is like a .2% chance to draw this tag but the Success rate is like 55% There are Lots of very nice elk (300 class) and a large number of near and over 400 class bulls in the brakes. Most of the newer state records have come from there. I have to look but it runs in my mind that 55 to 75 tag are given out. I'm going to take the boat along in the event I get one a long ways in it is so much easer to drag it Down to the river than out the top.My daughter-in-law got a Sheep tag in the general area and she got a cow elk tag for just across the river from my area. We may have to haul out two elk and a sheep with the Hewes!!! :drool:

Congrats on getting drawn D.  O0  You do realize that we'll expect a bunch of pictures from the hunt(s).  Not to mention since you'll have all of that good meat, you may be hosting the GPS Cookout.  :roll: :wink: :twisted:
The only purpose of bread is to hold meat!

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

If you get a big one, you gotta' let Lady and Mr. T do the taxidermy! :wink: O0
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

Love too BUT...

 I don't have room in my house for a head mount of any size. I only have 7' ceilings and 12' rooms. IF I get a new state record I'm just going to boil the head down and do some kind of European mount.
