Hunters who are going or not going hunting this fall

Don Quilici

Yahoo! It’s now official: Systems Consultants, the private firm in Fallon that conducts the computerized drawings for Nevada’s big game hunting tags, has posted the results at http://www.huntnevada.com for all the world to see.

There were a whole bunch of winners and even more losers in this year’s drawings.

I thought that it might be interesting to randomly select some of the folks who are going and who are not going hunting later this year.

It’s public information, so what the heck, let’s have some fun. If your name is listed, it’s the result of my own personal random selection. And, if your name is not listed, it is also the result of my random selection.

So, here’s one lucky hunter for each letter of the alphabet from “A” to “Z.”

A. Allan, Audrey, Dayton: Mule deer antlered hunt 1331: Area 171E, and antlered elk hunt 4151: Area 111E.

B. Beronio, Denise, Gardnerville, Mountain lion hunt 5132.

C. Clyde, Wesley, Carson City: Mule deer longbow antlered hunt 1341: Area 141, and antlerless elk archery hunt 4111: Area 111.

D. Davis, James, Carson City: Mule deer longbow antlered hunt 1341: Area 161.

Also:

Here is one hunter who hit the jackpot:

Keven Hall of Wells drew four tags: Antelope hunt 2151: Area 076, Antlered elk hunt 4151: Area 104, Mountain lion hunt 5132, and Mountain goat hunt 7151: Area 101.

How did I do:

Don Q was successful in drawing an antelope tag for area 015.

I was unsuccessful for: Antlered mule deer, Nelson bighorn sheep and California bighorn sheep.

Unsuccessful:

There were many unsuccessful applicants.

Included in that list were:

Scott Mercer of Carson City, who was unsuccessful with two applications.

Richard Scott of Dayton, unsuccessful three times.

Marc Duryee of Minden, unsuccessful four times.

David Carey of Fallon, unsuccessful five times.

Curtis Fuetsch of Zephyr Cove, unsuccessful six times.

Edward Burger of Battle Mountain, unsuccessful seven times.

Jody Schwartz of Reno, unsuccessful eight times.

Gary Lawry of Fallon, unsuccessful nine times.

Chris Fritz of Reno, unsuccessful ten times.

Mike Collie of Elko, unsuccessful eleven times.

Nathan Rogne of Fallon, unsuccessful thirteen times.

Life is good:

Also in the list of the unsuccessful applicants was Bob “Slick” McCulloch of Carson City, who loves to torment and tease me, constantly.

As I laughingly told him, he is being punished for always picking on me.

Ah, life is good when I are a winner and Slick is a loser.

Finally:

If you, too, are curious about who was successful or unsuccessful, just go to http://www.huntnevada.com.

Click on “Tag Results” on the left side, click on “2008 Main Draw” and then click on “Withdrawn,” “Successful,” “Unsuccessful,” “Rejected” or “Bonus Point,” and browse to your heart’s content. It is very informative.

– Bet Your Favorite Pigeon

Bet your favorite pigeon he can’t tell you which tags Slick applied for.

If he grins and says, “Slick applied for antlered mule deer (1331, 1341, 1371: Area 061E), and Antlered elk (4151, 4156, 4161: Area 111E),” he might have been browsing at that same huntnevada.com website.
