    I drew a cow tag a few years back for the second week of cow hunting. Didn't get one, but still had the hunting trip of my life. 10 out of 10 that I'd do it over again.

    I believe it will be available this evening at 5:00. Or you can watch it live if it's not over yet.

    Well looks like I donated. They did the announcement in alphabetical order by tag type so you can scroll the video to where your name would be if you won. I did not.

    I ended up watching the live feed. I didn’t recognize any names but saw a bunch of cities close to me.

    There were 7 from Alexandria drawn. 5 cow archery, 1 cow fire arm, and 1 bull fire arm. So my little town is well represented.............Hunters from, Washington State, Utah, Texas, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, New York, Alabama, Wisconsin, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania had tags drawn.

    My son and I went to the drawing event. It was fun and exciting but neither of us were drawn.

    Happy for the 7 locals. But not happy more not drawn when there are so many from out of state.
