Took my Grandfather until he was 83 yrs old to draw a Washington Cow Moose Permit and took him to 86 yrs old to draw the Washington Any Moose Permit. He passed away 6 Months after he killed his bull. Good luck to us all and I hope I don't have to wait until I'm in my 80's to draw a Moose Permit.

Each year the average number of points goes up and because its squared that means if you are below average number of points your odds actually decrease each year  :yike:  I think the average was around 8 ? so at least your odds aren't dropping.   :tup: Just a lil luck needed.

I heard this bull late the previous day in a swampy area I located on a map so the next morning I snuck in and did a little cow call and he came in hot right to me. Maybe  a 40 yard shot. My only regret is I didn't call him closer to the road.

I drew with 10 points.  But that was 9 years ago when I was only 3 off max.

A 10 year old kid drew 49 degrees north bull tag last year with 2 points and killed a 40" bull. It's the luck of the draw

I drew 2 years ago with 18 points.  My brother Craig drew a really good tag the next year with 8.
If you want to get slightly better odds, swing for the fences on your first pic, and than go with the sleeper units with better odds.    That's what I did :tup:

The reality is most guys/gals will never draw in Washington because there are too many hunters and not enough tags. If you really want to kill a moose, apply in Idaho. The tag and license is around $2350, but I drew a tag my second year applying. Some of there units are better than 1:4 for non-resident draw odds. :twocents:
