I wouldn't waste my time applying for WA moose.  There are better options, that include hunting moose before you die of old age.

Here are the 2016 stats. Some of the tags went to folks with 2 or 3 points.
It's a Lottery.

The 2 and 3 point winners for 49 degrees north we're a 10 year old and a 11 or 12 year old. Both from Skagit valley.

My 11 year old drew 124 with 3 points. From north Snoho. Not sure what youth odds are but that seems pretty good to me.

Wow, I'm one of the 4 max-point holders, but it still doesn't guarantee me a tag.  Thinking that I may never draw a moose tag in this state, I put in for Wyoming moose points for 15 years before I finally had enough preference points to draw there.  In 2015, I cashed in my points and shot a 38" bull, which wasn't huge, but I took home 300 lbs of boned out meat, and I couldn't be happier.

Max points right now is 22, and the data posted was from the previous year, so it looks like there are 310 people with "max points."

Sorry, I assumed I had max since I haven't missed a moose application since the early 1990's, but I looked up my points, and I in fact have only 22 points.  I am still not encouraged that I'll draw a tag any time soon.

If the top points were actually preference points, the odds for getting one of the 103 any moose tags would be about 1 in 3.  The bonus point system is worthless.
