Whats up everybody, welcome to the last episode of Tag Tuesday for 2018. Which is good because that just means it is closer to season. Don’t worry though we still have plenty to cover between now and fall. Next week we are starting Muley Monday, Wapiti Wednesday is still going strong and I have some killer Thursday shows coming down the pipeline. So if you get pumped hearing good hunting stories be sure to tune in to Muley Monday and Wapiti Wednesday from now through fall. Like I said it is basically the end of application season with a few stragglers still out there and now we are just waiting for results. If you didn’t get selected for the elk hunt you wanted, it is time to find a tag the OTC way or over the counter. An over the counter tag is just that, one that you can just buy without having to draw. Many states have great OTC opportunities and in this episode, Dave Barnett and I are going to break down each state based on the OTC opportunity.
Dave has some great articles on goHUNT.com and we will link to those in the show notes. where you will be able to see what we are talking about in the podcast with a ton of detail. If you are looking for a great OTC elk hunt this fall goHUNT.com is a must-have tool. There is a wealth of information at your fingertips in an extremely easy to use system. If you want to get serious about chasing big bulls this is the best $100 dollars you will spend. I say $100 dollars because when you sign up with the TRO code you get $50 credit in your account to use in the gear shop. Doing your homework on a hunt can be the difference between spending a week in the mountains chasing nothing or having one of the most memorable experiences of your life.
