It's simple, I am just another hunter that has always dreamed of hunting a bighorn sheep, chasing a big mule deer across the Arizona Strip, or bugling up a big bull elk in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico.
While in college, and thinking more about hunting than I probably should have, I decided then and there that I was going to do something about it.
I started researching all the western states' web sites and draw odds. I started off by applying in as many states that my pocket book would allow. Then I started planning further out and was able to apply in more and more states until the point that I was applying in all the states out West. While in this process, I started putting my hunting partners into the draws with me.
Then some of my friends were getting frustrated with the various states web sites and were tired of missing deadlines. So, they started asking me to put in for them while I was doing my applications. Then I started getting phone calls from some of their friends and was answering questions for them and assisting them in the various states draws that offered the hunts they were looking for.
This is what motivated me into starting this web based application service. I wanted to help and share my experience and knowledge of the Western States applications with others who wish to hunt North American big game. I also wanted to make the application process easier and more convenient as there were many times I thought that the state I was applying in simply didn't want out of state hunters. I want to make it to where a person can sit down and complete a whole year's worth of applications in one simple step. I also want to know that I helped someone draw the tag they never thought they were going to be able to.
