Anyway,good luck on your elk hunt
I don't think you were referencing a "once in a life time CA tag", as they do not exist. I've drawn twice in CA and hope to again. I've hunted elk for about 35 years and I am not aware of any once in a life time elk tags in the US, but I could be wrong. Sheep, goats, moose, yes, lot's of states have once in a life time tags, but not elk.
