Like the old saying goes, “You can’t win, if you don’t enter!” You must enter the drawings that you can afford, every year.

I would recommend these few points to note in your plans: [Read more…]

Urgent New Mexico Legislative Action Item

New Mexico Senate Bill SB196 has recently passed the Senate Conservation Committee and is heading to the Senate Fiscal Committee. If it passes in it’s current form regular non-resident applicants will be limited to 2% of the total number of tags where guided resident and non-resident hunters may get 8% of the tags for any given hunt! They are also considering implementing the requirement to purchase a non-refundable hunting license to apply which is estimated at $90 for non-residents.

New Mexico currently allocates permits in the antelope, Mule deer, and elk drawing as follows: 78% to residents, 12% to non-residents contracted with an outfitter, and 10% to regular non-resident applicants.

Go to http://www.huntinfool.com/members/email_action.asp for complete details and to contact the New Mexico Senators with your opinion, comments, and/or concerns about this bill. Please feel free to forward this to any of your hunting buddies or those with interests in New Mexico hunting.

Dall Sheep Cancellation Hunt and Membership Drawing

Alaska TOK Dall Sheep Cancellation Hunt
We have a great opportunity for one of our members to hunt the TOK this fall for a giant Dall ram. The current owner of this auction sheep tag has to cancel his hunt. He is willing to sell the tag for $12,000 and the outfitter will provide guide service for $14,000. There will be two guides available to maximize the chances for a giant ram. This outfitter is one of the best in the business and has an outstanding reputation for producing trophy Dall rams. The hunt dates are August 8-25, 2010. You can hunt this entire time frame if desired. This is probably one of the best Dall sheep hunts in North America. Call us at 435.865.1020 for more information

Reminder: Our Membership Drive hunt giveaway drawing is only days away and the lucky winners will be drawn this Saturday July 10th! If you are in need of a world class hunt refer a friend or buy some raffle tickets and apply for the hunt of your choice! To obtain tickets you can visit our website http://www.huntinfool.com/services/store.asp?rFlag=Tickets and purchase them online or simply call us at 435-865-1020 ASAP!
