Hunting Memories

The 17-Year Wait

I had been applying for my Once-in-a-Lifetime Utah Moose tag for 17 years and finally drew a tag for the 2002 season. Harvesting one of these majestic animals is truly an opportunity and a life altering experience.

For those men and women out there who feel the system doesn't work, believe me it does — and when you least expect it. Don't quit on the draw/point system in Utah, you'll eventually get your tag and then the absolute fun begins.

Good hunting.
