Oh well, they have plenty of elk in Montana and elsewhere, while I wait for my CA tag.
I guess it depends on the zone. The Tenemaha zone has 4 periods with around 10 antlerless tags in each period, and only 1 bull tag. The first time I drew was a year or two before the point system started, so it was pure luck. The second time was a couple years ago with max points, either 8 or 9.
