The last time I was buying a deer tag, the clerk asked me what unit I intended to hunt. I didn't think I had to pick one unit, so what's the deal with that?

Question:

Answer:

You will not hear that question again. The research work in which that information was used has been concluded. It never was a limitation on where you could hunt in an open hunt but was for information purposes only. But now that particular point of confusion is gone. However, we still ask for a unit on elk, bear and mountain lion tags to make sure hunters will be hunting in the appropriate areas with the appropriate tag type.
