X9B rifle tag for me. Me and the 2nd boy are heading up in two weekends do spend 4 days catching trout and scouting deer. Hopefully get at least one more recon trip in before the season. Pumped for this hunt, high altitude, big basins, and lots of miles.
If you have X9B dirt I will take it. I have a game plan and some areas in mind but any help is always appreciated.
Good luck on that hunt. Ive been really intrigued by X9B. Id be very interested to hear from you on your scouting trips. If you ever want some company Id love to take a weekend up there scouting around. I dont mind driving.

A22 will sell out and won't be available on the 2nd. At least it has in recent years.
Drew,
Let me see if I am right.
I got a G13, If I can’t get an A22 I could get an AO,
Then hunt for a buck during archery season and either sex with rifle on general season.. ?

A D16 can do everything an AO can and oyu can rifle hunt with it. You definitely want a D16 to accompany your G13 in my opinion. Gonna really suck if you are rifle hunting and a nice B&C D16 sporky pops out in front of you and you cant shoot it. You can hunt archery for bucks the first few weeks of September with a D16.

I love hunting season! This thread gets me so pumped!

Thank you Drew.
I thought that G13 was either sex. I got it wrong.
D16 is next then.

on the mountain
AO = Archery Only = fork horn buck.
D16 = general season archery and general season rifle = forked horn buck .
G13 = doe only , rifle or Archery.
During the G13 season..
An AO will allow you hunt general season archery.. and general rifle season except with bow only.
Be best pick up a D16 tag if you can.
