My friend drew a tag for a bighorn sheep in 2014 and harvested a ram. Can he apply for a moose tag in 2016, or does he have to wait until 2017 to apply? When does the 2 year waiting period for trophy species start?
Those who draw a trophy species must wait two years before applying for a trophy hunt again. Based on the information you provided, the individual must sit out the first application period in 2015 and 2016. They may apply for a moose hunt in first application period in 2017. They may also submit an application in the second application period in 2016 if any moose tags go unfilled during the drawing.
