    Wapiti Ballot 2017

    How did everyone go?

    3rd time trying and 3rd time getting a block so pretty happy.

    Edith 2nd period, if anyone has any info let me know.

    I can provide info on wapiti river and looking glass.

    Thanks

    Since growing up around there I never bothered applying for one. But since I have been away for 5.5 years now I'm missing those mountains.
    First time applying and missed out.

    Probably not much help Jock but I think I have the Rod & Rifle mags at home with the Wapiti blocks by Simon Gibson (not related) and the Edith is in there.

    Happy to send it down for you if you want?

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    First time heading into these blocks. Drew Dark River first period. Would really appreciate any info on this block as I have already been reading that it is a very difficult block to hunt. First time entering the ballot, so one from one, chomping at the bit to get in there!!

    Loch Burn 1st period. Now the homework begins.

    Have limited experience of The Doon if anyone drew that.

    I had 6 years between pulling a block and then being successful again, and now have had 3 in 3 years!
