    I'm not familiar with what sheep draws are or were available but seeing how those ones have draw odds attached they are not new. The odds are based on the previous year's results.

    Have never heard of anyone shooting a ewe or lamb, doesn’t tickle my fancy. Am I missing something ?

    Sheep are excellent eating, so if the range is over populated in that area this is a great thing.

    nor have I. weird to see that its only 1 per draw. i feel like female, or immature hunts are for strong populations and usually have if pop is strong there is more than 1 tag awarded.

    Majority of these draws have been in place since I have been applying (last few years). These areas would not necessarily be deemed “over populated”, but are seen as healthy enough by biologists to support a hunt with no detrimental effect on population sizes.

    My best guess on the single tag allotments would be to allow/increase more interest in sheep, while minimizing impact on the herds.

    Generally any new draws in the LEH synopsis will be highlighted in color (orange I believe).

    Not a new draw. Have seen "trophy" rooms of ewes and/or lambs. Have one buddy that applies every year. If they happen to get the draw... well...

    Apply for the draw and if you get it burn the tag, what a joke if you ask me.

    Tag numbers used to be higher, reducing to 1 leaves the hunt on the list without killing it, Region can adjust as needed.
    If an LEH goes to 0, it is off the books and has to be reestablished, rejustified, renegotiated, etc in Victoria

    Stare at sheep long enough, and the thought of a lamb BBQ is mouth watering
    Never say 'whoa' in the middle of a mud hole.

    I'm with you. If the herd is healthy I see no reason why not. I would hazard a guess that it might be the tastiest prey in the entire hunting synopsis.
    Is Justin Competent, or just incompetent?
