Goat Tag Raffle - Flooded
« on: March 23, 2016, 08:30:36 AM »
The WDFW website doesn't reflect it yet, but the goat tag raffle got heavily flooded yesterday by a guy who still has some in reserve.  Evidently, WDFW only updates the website once a week.

As it stands now, it will take at least $25K to get 60% odds at this point if historical figures are any indication. And, at least $60K or more to get to 85%.  Of course, a guy that buys just one tag would win it all. Crazy.

Anyway, I'm just passing this along as a courtesy since it would suck for someone that's thinking about doing it to depend on WDFW's outdated website for the latest raffle tag count and then end up inadvertently screwing themselves on the odds...and whoever else that already laid down some dough for mountain goat conservation.

wow, between now and july to collect additional raffle tickets.  Is that his way of saying, don't bother in an attempt to increase his odds?  the raffles have definitely changed since they started.  I wish I could afford to play at that level.

No. It's more like the guy's way of saying, "Think long and hard about laying that cash down since the odds are a lot worse now for you than what the WDFW website might lead you to believe."

And, you can go to B.C. a few times for that kind of money.

There's only 147 showing but I can assure you that are a lot more than that as of yesterday.

Seems kinda ignorant to waste a bunch of cash on Raffle tags at this point when you could  wait for the Special Permit draw & potentionaly get the same Tag for pennies on the Dollar. :lol4: :lol4: :lol4:

Are these tags transferable?

Can you gift them should you win?

That's a good question.  It's under a WILD ID so I assume it isn't like the G-Tag transfer election.

I can tell you with 100% certainty that he's gotten bumped out of the G-tag bidding the last three years so he's not likely to give it up if he draws.

Great post, I think putting down that kind of money early is sending a signal to the other "whales" that they are going to have to lay some serious cash to increase their odds.  Whoever bought these wants the tag bad!  That being said thanks for the contribution to the state and I hope a guy who only buys one ticket pulls the tag, lol.

Is this implying that Bushcraft is the guy who purchased an epic ton of raffle tickets yesterday?

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
