Research and Reap The Rewards
“Mike/Guy, I wanted to let you know that I had a great Area 2 Sheep hunt! Info from the years of reading your magazine and your great advice lead me to pick a good outfitter and I was well prepared. I enclosed some pics and a story. Maybe it will make the magazine. I have more photos that I will send via the US mail. Thanks for the help! -Louie Kitcoff, Bloomington, IN”
As most of you know, the MRS and application season is right around the corner already. Most of you probably already have the Wyoming Elk MRS in your hands by now. The “master” data chart for Wyoming elk alone has over 3,500 data points covering almost every aspect of Wyoming elk hunting possibly known to man. There is no other place you can get this wealth and depth of big game hunting information in one place. This is the type of information that will help to guide you to make the right decision when applying for your next Western big game tag. Louie Kitcoff carefully poured through the information in last year’s Wyoming Sheep MRS and made the right decision by putting in for Area 2 and selecting the right outfitter to suite his needs and hunting style. The decision paid off, as Louie was able to put it all together high atop that Wyoming peak a few months ago and put the ram of his dreams on the dirt for good.
Smart application decisions are critical in this day and age of preference points and high-dollar application costs, and the MRS section of the magazine is the place to get you started on your quest for the trophy of a lifetime. With the addition of Washington and California this year, the MRS sections now cover all the Western states with plenty of information to get your research started off on the right foot and save you loads of time. Of all the letters and emails we get here at the office on a weekly basis, the hunt-success feedback like Louie’s letter with a photo attachment are my favorites by far. Keep them coming fellas and good luck with your research. And as always, let me know if there is something else we need to include in our MRS that would make your research project a little bit easier. I better run and get started on the Wyoming Sheep/Moose/Mt. Goat write-ups. -Guy Eastman
