NV - will apply for deer, sheep, antelope, goat and bull elk.
My daughter will apply for the same, except maybe points for bull elk, will have to sit on that for a moment. We will be hunting lions all winter.

I want another species or challenge. I have considered coues, or whitetail in general.

May apply for antelope in Wyoming if we dont draw that here. I am sitting on a lot of points.

This year was good to us with four tags, so that eliminated an out of state hunt. The year prior my daughter did a youth hunt in South Dakota.

Will probably hunt KS whitetail, CO elk and CO deer, in addition to Indiana. If I get real lucky in AZ, NM, or WY that may change.

If I draw an Emperor tag I'll go to Cold Bay, if not then Cape Cod for waterfowl in Dec.
If I draw a Gould's tag I'll do that in AZ in May, and Axis Deer in Hawaii in Feb. If I don't draw the Gould's tag I'll do the Axis in May.

Might do archery bear in the Sierras before it gets banned like the bobcats and mountain lions.

I still have two more months to hunt big game so I’m not really thinking about 2020, but quick answer would be WY pronghorn, KS whitetail and probably an elk hunt with my son in CO. Plus Idaho critters....I want to do Sept elk with a bow in the high country.

Hoping to be able to hunt elk if I draw a CO or WY tag. Would also like to hunt WY pronghorn and bear if I can fit it in.

Back here in NZ I have entered rut ballots for tahr, deer and wapiti. I will also do regular hunting’s trips during the year.

Putting in for WY deer, elk, antelope, mnt goat, moose and maybe sheep.

Probably just hunt antelope, deer and elk. Its my oldest kids first year to hunt, so I will be focussed on that for sure!!

In 2020, I’m going to have to turn my late Kaibab rifle tag back in and use point guard so I can give my desert bighorn tag the time it deserves.

that’s the dream.
Reality is probably go to Alaska and help on a dall sheep hunt and then spend the rest of my vacation hiking through dog shit weather that resembles the inside of a mayonnaise jar at 10k feet in the Beartooth pretending that a ram might be within 10 miles of me.

I will do more hunting with friends and family than most years, which will be fun. Will shoot for the moon on all WY species and run w/ generals otherwise.
I'm considering taking a chunk of time to try and rustle up a better class of general bull, but not sure I care enough or not. Problem is I have a fair bit of time off during hunting season but no time during scouting. Got 11 months to kick it around.

Hopefully Wyoming elk on a general tag if I can find a partner. Perhaps an antelope hunt with a friend if she passes hunter safety😜 Aren't they messing with draw dates next year so that everything comes out at the same time? That would definitely limit the choices.
