I won't be buying any more raffle tickets. I get that $90K is a big contribution to the WDFW. But the money will all go to paying ranchers for dead calves and wolf collars. None of it will be used for habitat improvements. They won't miss my $18.
It is a big deal, your  $18 matters, it is all relative.  These are a defacto auction and the SALE of the "states" animals that they are supposed to be managing for the people.  It's a huge deviation from the North American model of wildlife conservation and  it is wrong!  It is also trending in a very very bad way in Wa (as is our odds weren't bad enough). I don't hate on the players (hunters), I don't like the game though.  @Rosscrazyelk raised some very valid concerns and wasn't met with a bunch of support. There are other *funding mechanisms* out there that will fall closer in line with the model.  A bunch of animals were auctioned off by the king you the highest bidder both in the raffle and the auction and  those bidders will have expanded opportunities next year, as they have nearly every year in the last decade.

P-man, I thought for sure the 1000 tickets you bought would've been a lock. :sry:

Yeah, right. I know you saw me face-to-face. So, I may look stupid, but... :chuckle:

I don't hold any ill will towards someone who puts $90K into the WDFW's coffers.

If I had that kind of extra cash I'd buy the tag as well.

You know how these things work, if the tag holder wants to share on here thats his choice not mine.   I do know that he deserves it and put a ton of money into WDFW. 

People get tired of the BS on here and choose not to share.  It is what it is.

The funny thing is, they still aren't buying the tag.  It's still an open raffle.

 :bash: :'(

I shouldn't have looked.  Just before I left for work this morning I remembered to jot down one of my raffle ticket numbers.  I was the 2nd goat ticket selected.  Maybe I'd be happier if I hadn't known.   :chuckle:

Well you still have a chance if they decide not to hunt or something comes up. However since it looks like the winner bought 100 tickets they are probably going to use the tag. I keep hoping one of these days one of these states will hook you up with a tag and we can have a killer goat thread from ya.
